Masaki Matsushima Homme brown leather and canvas folded bag
Quite unusual bag by japanese designer masaki matsushima (c. 1990s). It is made as a long rectangle, which folds in half to create an almost-square. The face side is made in brown leather and the reverse brown canvas, with cream leather trim on both. When folded, it's almost as if each of the four quarters (?) of the bag has a bag mounted onto/into it: a flapped bag with cream edging and a large zip compartment on the two outer (leather) quarters, and two (differently shaped) zipped bags on the interior canvas quarters.
The bag can also be used in several ways: carried as a tote bag with two short handles, worn as a shoulder bag with a long (detachable) leather strap, worn as a cross-body bag with the same long (detachable) leather strap, or half open / folded around the body (perhaps the most fun way). The long shoulder strap can be attached in different positions via a series of D-rings on the inside of the bag (which can also be used to hold the bag closed / in its folded position).
Good condition, with some small marks, creasing, and wear (see pictures 10-11 for examples). Found two tablets inside the bag on arrival (see pictures 15-16), look to be medication, we have discarded them out of caution.
