I’m feeling all kinds of excited as I’m typing this, since the brand I’ve been following both online (and off) for at least the last 5 years will be opening her very first gallery in Singapore. Yes, boys and girls, French luxury atelier Moynat will finally be opening her doors to all next week (Friday, 28 July 2017) at Ngee Ann City.
Founded in 1849 and revived in 2011, Singapore will be only the 9th country in the world (and the first country in Southeast Asia) to have her own Moynat boutique. So what can you expect from one of my favourite brands that pride itself in using only the best of the best, from the dedicated craftsmen to the finest leathers (both of which I’ve witnessed firsthand)? Well, for starters, beautifully designed bags dreamt up by Artistic Director Ramesh Nair, taking inspiration from its founder Pauline Moynat who was (and still is) the only female trunk maker in history when she launched the label back in the 1800s.
At Singapore’s Moynat Gallery you’ll find trunks, bags, leather goods and textiles for both men and women (some of which you’ll see if you follow this link), along with the opportunity to customise your own bags and trunks. Even Moynat’s signature personalisation service, where an artist will hand-paint initials on your bags, will be available here.
Also, if you are keen to have a look at what Moynat has to offer (and find out more about what they do, how they do it and have an up-close and personal look yourself), I’ll be at the boutique on 28 and 29 July (and reliving my memories from being a Metro
salesgirl salesboy), so if you want get a quick introductory tour from yours truly, simply leave a comment here, drop me an email or even DM me on Instagram and I’ll set the appointment up. See you all next week.
