Many things come to mind when looking at Moynat’s new bag addition to its collection of beautiful, elegant bags. You could say it looks like a rice dumpling (you know, zongzi), a traditional Chinese staple that’s made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in broad leaves that results in its triangular shape. You could also say that if the Dogon ever expanded into a collection of bags, this could have easily fitted in as one of the bag styles that Hermés would have had.
But no, this beauty belongs to Moynat, and it’s called the Madeleine. To be launched exclusively first in South Korea to celebrate the opening of the Moynat’s Seoul Gallery in the Shilla Hotel, the structured clutch is crafted with grained Veau Carat leather. Crafted entirely from start to finish by a single craftsman, its palladium clasp is also rounded outwards (not so Dogon after all, if you know what I mean), reminiscent of the studs used on Moynat’s trunks from the days of yore.
Measuring some 17 cm by 15 cm by 13 cm, this little darling will be available in Seoul from 30 August 2016 and priced at KRW4,120,000.00, or around SGD5000 after conversion.
