You don’t typically associate bad dreams with a handbag collection, but some things just aren’t meant to be taken so literally. Case in point, the limited-edition capsule collection created by French luxury house Moynat in collaboration with French-Japanese artist Tiffany Bouelle that’s called ‘Bad Dreams’.
The collection is a play on the monster with sharp teeth (named Adam), which is also the central design found on 2 key bags. The first is the Oh Tote, which comes decked out in Moynat’s signature Initial canvas and finished with leather handles that come with circular ends made to look like eyes. In the middle are his teeth, making it look like a cute monster when seen from the front.
Here’s the deal about the Oh Tote. It’s fully made from linen-cotton canvas inside and out, bonded with leather on the edges and finished with leather piping at the base, so you know it’s all about true, quality craftsmanship with the piece. Featuring a pair of sporty stripes complete with Moynat’s logo on the opposite side, it will come in 2 sizes, the MM (SGD2430, 38 cm by 27 cm) and GM (SGD2730, 45 cm by 32 cm).
For those who don’t carry much on a day-to-day basis, you can consider the Bad Dreams Pouch which will also come in 2 sizes. The smaller MM measures 24 cm by 17 cm and would fit a couple of essentials like your mobile phone, a charger and other bits and bobs. The GM, on the other hand, comes in bigger at 35 cm by 25 cm and will fit A4 documents or an iPad, amongst others.
And if you’re excited already, know that both totes in 3 colours, Bronze, Indigo (blue) and Madder (orangey red), will be available at Moynat’s Singapore boutiques (Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre) from 15 December 2018. As for the pouches, they will be released in January 2019, so do yourself a favour and grab a tote (or two) first.
UPDATE: 22 November 2018
This just in. All the pieces from this new collection by Moynat will only be available in Singapore from January 2019 and not mid-December 2018 as previously mentioned. Still, no harm in getting yourself on the wait list if you are really really keen.
