Moynat: 5 Things To Know About The Wheel BB


Craftsmanship and heritage remain at the heart of Moynat till this very day, something that is clearly apparent when you get up close with the bags and leather goods at the local Moynat boutiques in Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre. And while the Gabrielle and the Réjane have long been classic icons of the house, the French luxury brand has unveiled several new styles just like the Wheel BB to keep things fresh, and it is time you get familiar with 5 key facts to know about the bag. 

01 – One of the first creations by Nicholas Knightly for Moynat, the Wheel BB is a cylindrical minaudière inspired by tyre trunks made for car owners back in 1907, only this time it comes in miniature proportions that measure 21.5 cm high (inclusive of top handle) and 17 cm wide. 

02 – The hard-sided case comes decked out with the signature Toile 1920 monogram, while the interior is fully lined in goat amber leather for that extra touch of luxe. Peek within and you will also find an extra envelope cardholder (a key addition for all new Moynat styles going forward), one that can also be removed and used on its own, or kept slotted within the cut-out pocket on the inside.

03 – Carrying the Wheel BB is straightforward. You can opt to hold it by the top handle or attach the adjustable leather strap (drop lengths ranging from 49 cm to 55 cm) and sling this little beauty across the body or over the shoulder. 

04 – While the decorative leather harness cannot be removed, you can’t deny that it provides a truly eye-catching design element, strapped front and back in a way that’s reminiscent of the same detailing found on vintage Moynat trunks. 

05 – Priced at SGD6400, the Wheel BB is available in a single size and Carbon/Bronze colourway. More colours and styles should be launching in the months to come, but if you love owning the first of every kind, then you know what you need to do next…
