No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. This isn’t the Cabotin, but the new addition to the Moynat family of bags come Spring-Summer 2018 known as the Cabotine (pronounced Cabo-tini, yes, like martini). Yes, there’s an extra ‘e’ at the end. Inspired by its bigger sister, it’s what I call the half-sized delight that also comes without the top handle. And while the original has two push clasp locks on the front, this bag only has a single one to help you get ‘in and out’ faster. Finished with an adjustable sling, you could say this was created because while women loved the original Cabotin, some felt it was still much too big, or in this case, long. And because smaller is still better, well, here you go.
Available in an eye-watering array of fun hues, you’ll find it Paprika (shown above), alongside Groseille (think red currants), Fuschia and Blue, all of which come crafted in natural cow hides which in leather-speak is just plain delicious.
And speaking of the one in Blue, don’t you think it has my name all over it?
