Because sometimes big is not always better, one of my favourite French houses Moynat has recently launched a smaller, or in their exact words, petite version of the Réjane that’s just 26 cm across. An elegantly beautiful yet surprisingly functional handbag (because, really, she is more than just skin-deep), the Petite Réjane will easily make the transition from day to night with you.
More importantly, because only a limited number of pieces are available in new summery hues, you’ll not very likely catch someone carrying the exact bag as you, especially if you are going to have to pay EUR3200 for it. The price might seem high at first, but once you consider factors like Moynat’s emphasis on quality leathers and fine craftsmanship, its limited runs and the fact that you probably pay as much (if not more) for bags from other brands that are as common as the rich Mainlander these days, it’s really not that bad at all.
Visit them in Paris at their flagship along Rue Saint Honoré, or drop them an email with your enquiries. Moynat will take your order and have your bag (or bags) shipped direct to your doorstep.
