Moynat – PFW 2018 – Handbags Collection 2019
Moynat – Techniques and tools create magic.
The inventiveness of Ramesh Nair is seemingly limitless, and like Moynat, his shyness means less limelight and more magic.
by Tony Glenville
From the enamelled clasp on a bag, through to the gold dust leather, nothing is loud, this is whisper chic and supreme craftsmanship at its quietest.
No major logos, no mad designs to grasp headlines, Ramesh and Moynat are simply “ a class act”.
The curve of the metal handle on a bag, slips comfortably into the hand, the abstract patterned pieces are in fact inlaid onto each other, the scaly crocodile surface of a tote bag reveals myriad shades of colour when examined.
The shimmer on the box bags is so subtly metallic that it appears and disappears like a magic spell, the stunning new bag is fastened with the clip artists affix paper to a drawing board with and is attached by a neat filigree chain.
A half leather, half basket weave cane bag is the summer accessory to go from beach bar to gala without missing a beat.
Every single piece is an art object, every seam, lining and piece of metal work is of precision and technical know how.
So if you want to see, feel and own, the most magical bags possible, whose magician, Ramesh, has used the tools and heritage of the house, in a narrative of the cogs and technical instruments used in the disciplines of creation, go straight to Moynat.
Oh yes and to round it all off the colour palette scintillates through dove grey, deep leaf green, mango, and lie de vin, to mention only a few.
