Moynat’s Réjane needs no introduction, an elegant and graphic top-handle bag which you’ve seen in numerous interpretations over the years; from the nano-sized charms right up to the biggest MM size, as well as variations like the bi-coloured Réjane Duet with the sporty canvas strap, to the most recent Réjane 23 Constellation in shiny box calf leather. Yes, the Réjane is offered in different sizes with seasonal versions featuring decorative elements, but the bag has never taken an alternate form, where its very silhouette was changed.
Which is why the all-new Réjane Echo introduced by the brand’s Creative Director, Ramesh Nair, will pique your interest. It is now available at Moynat boutiques located in Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre.
The Réjane Echo defies the notions of a traditional trapezoid-shaped Réjane, coming with sharp bevelled corners that make it an unusual and unexpected piece for the fans who are familiar with its classic shape. To put it simply, it is simply the Réjane flipped over, where the top is now the bottom. Do you see it?
Not only is it a statement-making piece that will stand out from the rest of its counterparts, Moynat’s Réjane Echo is crafted exclusively in natural cowhide, making it even more special. It’s a rare and precious leather that will develop a unique patina over time, growing to look even better with age.
Measuring 20 cm by 15.5 cm, the Réjane Echo is likened to the BB size, coming with an adjustable and removable leather strap that gives you multiple ways of carrying. Unlocking the Art Deco-inspired clasp will lead you to the Veau Perle calfskin lining, furnished with a flat inner pocket that will store a couple of cards safely within. The great thing about Moynat is that there are no shortcuts used to create their leather goods, and they strive for perfection in terms of craftsmanship with each and every piece. Till this very day, the bags are crafted and finished by hand, along with several unique touch-points like the fact that its edges are painted and waxed 8 times, guaranteeing that it will truly withstand the test of time.
Priced at SGD9000, the Réjane Echo is currently available in two colours, Black and Cognac, with exotic versions to be released soon, so do stay tuned for more information on that.
