Before the likes of Louis Vuitton and Goyard, there was Moynat. The luxury leather-goods house and master trunk maker has long been known for its impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail, so if you’re looking for a bag that is timeless in aesthetic – and will last long enough to prove that – look no further than Moynat’s latest collection.
Since relaunching under LVMH in 2011, the French label has gone through somewhat of a revival, reinterpreting its signature styles with a fresh perspective. The collection follows a new direction, one with versatile, feminine designs that do not compromise on quality. The region’s “It” girls – Karen Wazen, Nathalie Fanj, and Dana Hourani included – are clearly in agreement, flaunting these effortlessly chic handbags on their Instagram accounts.
The ‘Réjane’, named after 20th century French actress Gabrielle Réjane and available in three different sizes, is both sleek and bold. With a patented locking system and detachable straps, we’re dubbing this bag perfect for any day-to-night look. The brand’s traditional craftsmanship also takes perfect form in the ‘Gabrielle’. Classic with a twist, this structured wardrobe staple has already made countless appearances alongside Wazen and Fanj.
Moynat’s most recognizable style, however, has to be the ‘OH! Tote’. The customizable canvas bag is the perfect accessory for those of us who like to carry around everything but the kitchen sink. Just think of it as a Mary Poppins bag – there will always be more room. For a trendy alternative that reflects the Parisian house’s signature style to a T, opt for the calfskin leather ‘Madeleine Clutch’ that, with its extra-long strap, screams wrist candy. So which ones ended up in the wardrobes of our favorite influencers? And how did they style theirs? Answers await in the gallery, below.
