Created in collaboration with NOWNESS, French trunk-makers and leather goods specialist Moynat presents their first-ever short film, Parisian Promenade, directed by Mary Clerté. Beautifully shot in Paris, you could say the film pays homage to Pauline Moynat, who in 1849 was also the only French trunk-maker in Paris.
More important (well, for me anyway) is the fact that while watching the video, you’ll catch glimpses of Moynat’s lovely bags, from the Cabotin in the opening shot to the elegant Réjane which accompanies the model at the cafe, and later on, is slung across her body as she cycles past the magnificent Palais de Tokyo.
You’ll also be able to spot a selection of small leather goods from purses to smartphone cases, a leather Quattro tote, as well as a selection of archived vintage trunks that span the atelier’s long history.
Here’s the Cabotin I mentioned earlier, the versatile yet beautiful full leather bag that’s shaped like a vintage metal lunchbox. Available in 4 different colours, you can find out more about the bag here.
And then there’s the Réjane, which was also covered on the blog last December. Dedicated to Gabrielle Réjane, a celebrated actress from the Parisian theatre scene in 1896, it was created by current Creative Director Ramesh Nair. Contemporary and curvaceous, it’s worthy of any modern woman’s admiration.
Moynat is currently only available in Paris at their flagship along Rue Saint Honoré, or feel free to drop them an email with your enquiries. And if anything catches your fancy, Moynat will have it shipped it to you, anywhere in the world.
