Moynat is celebrating a lot of years since it’s founding in 1849 by Pauline Moynat.

However Ramish Nair the artistic director behind the brands divine bags is looking forward. In the display of the coming seasons pieces he used metal and mirror and industrial components pointing towards the new, whilst of course embracing the heritage and wonders of the house.

New techniques and materials are ever his signature and stand out to be mentioned first were the bags I said, “ oh they’re such lovely natural stone colours”, only to be informed that they actually were REAL stone sliced into delicate slivers to cover the bag; amazing.

The metal covered bags, the engraved metal details, the inverted pyramid bag and so on all added to this textural interplay of shapes, surfaces and materials.

The details of the fastenings, locks, handles, etcetera, are superb and this attention to detail and the craftsmanship within these details and the finish of each individual piece is truly breathtaking.

You really do need time to focus and examine each item to fully appreciate this component of design and construction. Skins and leathers and surface treatments are also integral to the houses quality, and colour is amazing; from the deepest blue violet or brilliant chrome yellow to rich browns and naturals.

Classic established items in the collection receive updates in colour or sometimes in size or the detailing, the scrutiny of the designers eye is everywhere.

The wonderful Rejane bag , created in 1903, with its updated Art Deco lock and the more than twenty hours it takes to make, including the eight coats of colour on the rim of the bag surface, is refreshed.

Named after the famous actress, a lifelong friend of the founder of Moynat, it is all part of this houses wonderful history.

A history Ramish is enriching with new techniques and skills, a house alive with beauty.
