Una preziosa gemma in viaggio da Parigi a Hong Kong: Moynat apre a Landmark

In occasione del 165° anniversario della fondazione di Moynat, il marchio famoso per i suoi bauletti ha aperto la sua prima gallery in Asia l’8 Gennaio a Landmark Hong Kong. Presenti accessori in pelle sia per donna che per uomo, bauletti e abiti, sarà possibile accedere al famoso servizio di personalizzazione della maison che comprende: decorazione a mano delle iniziali e realizzazione di bauletti e valigie su misura.

Per celebrare ulteriormente l’evento Moynat ha creato un modello unico e eccezionale di Rejane mini bag in coccodrillo con chiusura gioiello. Il modello originale fu realizzato in onore di Gabrielle Rejane, una delle più famose attrici della Belle Epoque ed è stata la prima borsa ad avere il nome di una celebrità. Questo modello “evening chic” ha un nuovo formato più piccolo ed è realizzato nell’atelier Moynat nel cuore di Parigi, la chiusura in oro rosa con pavet di 320 diamanti a firma dei maestri gioiellieri di Place Vendome.

Oltre a questa borsa è stato presentato anche uno dei suoi pezzi unici del suo direttore artistico Ramesh Nair. Questo pezzo eccezionale è stato fatto da Chaumet (gioielleria parigina dal 1780) per una collana di diamanti di alta gioielleria ispirata da una creazione degli archivi Chaumet del 1919, per realizzarla sono stati usati 156 brillanti taglio diamante di 30 carati complessivi e 70 diamanti taglio pear di 60 carati. Il modello incorpora nel suo disegno 3 curve in omaggio non solo ai bauletti tipici di Moynat ma anche per ricordare una pietra sfaccettata e le sue curve. Per realizzarlo sono state necessarie oltre 500 ore di lavorazione che hanno compreso l’uso di tecniche complesse e sosfisticate.

Nel pieno spirito dello “stylish travel” di Moynat entrambe queste creazioni speciali mostrano ancora una volta l’incredibile talento e savoir-faire incarnando alla perfezione l’essenza della joie de vivre parigina che è Moynat.


A precious gem travels from Paris to Hong Kong: Moynat Gallery at Landmark

On the occasion of the 165th anniversary of Moynat, the Parisian trunk maker will open its first gallery in Asia on January 8th 2015 at Landmark, facing Pedder Street. The gallery includes women’s and men’s leather goods and accessories, trunks and textiles. The gallery will also take orders for the House’s signature personalisation service, from hand painting of initials, to made-to-measure trunks and handbags.

To celebrate the 165th year anniversary of the Parisian house and its first voyage to Asia, Moynat has created a unique and exceptional Réjane mini bag in crocodile leather with a jewelled closure. The Réjane bag was originally created in homage to Gabrielle Réjane, one of the most famous French actresses of the Belle Epoque, and is the first handbag to be named after a celebrity.

This unique “evening chic” interpretation of the iconic Réjane bag is in a new 20cm size and is hand made in the Moynat atelier located in the heart of Paris, requiring six crocodile skins to achieve perfect symmetry. The clasp is rendered in rose gold, paved with 320 diamonds by master jewellers on the legendary Place Vendome.

In the centre of the clasp “Moynat Paris” is delicately etched in filigree technique on a base of mother of pearl and protected with curved quartz. All metallic elements in the bag are also in rose gold. This exceptional bag retails for 1.18M HKD.

Moynat has also chosen this moment to present the latest of its famous one-of-a-kind trunks, created by Ramesh Nair, the artistic director of Moynat.

This exceptional mini trunk is a special order from Chaumet, the Parisian jeweller since 1780, located at 12, Place Vendôme, for an unique high jewellery diamond necklace, inspired by a creation from the Chaumet archives of 1919. This piece of high jewellery has been crafted at the Chaumet atelier on Place Vendôme and is faithful to the House’s signature savoir-faire, requiring 156 brilliant cut diamonds of 30 carats and 70 pear-cut diamonds of 60 carats.

The jewellery trunk once again pushes the boundaries of traditional trunk making and is as much a marvel as the jewels that it serves to highlight. This complex trunk incorporates three curved sides in homage not only to Moynat’s signature curved trunks, but also as an echo of the faceted stones. The frame of the trunk is in poplar and apple wood, sheathed in vegetal tanned leather that matches Chaumet’s signature “lumière” colour, continuing the Moynat tradition of personalised colour matching.

The mechanism to open the trunk is articulated so that the two sides cantilever sideways to reveal a curved glass vitrine that contains the necklace. As the box opens, the glass vitrine lights up automatically. The closures and metallic elements used for this trunk have been specially designed and hand tooled to Moynat specifications. The carrying handles have been designed fit flush with the trunk, maintaining the smooth line of the trunk’s contours. The other closures include cats-tongue locks and bracketed-lever locks, hallmarks of Moynat trunks since the founding of the House.

The trunk created for Chaumet required over 500 hours to realise, using complex techniques, including moulding panels of wood as well as glass to achieve the Moynat shape. In the Moynat spirit of stylish travel, both the jewelled Réjane bag and the trunk created for Chaumet showcase the Maison’s uncompromising talent and savoir-faire, while truly incarnating the essence of Parisian joie de vivre that is Moynat.
