MOYNAT LAUNCHES THE RÉJANE SADDLE BAG




Well,  it's finally here.....

The Moynat Réjane Saddle Bag, the latest work of art to join the iconic Réjane bag family for the chic and urban style launches this month.  As the saddle bag becomes a must have for all fashionista's this autumn, then the Réjane has to be the must-have of must-haves!

In 2011, Ramesh Nair, the artistic director of Moynat chose to reinstate the Réjane bag which is the most emblematic creation of the house thanks to its very Parisian spirit. 

The Réjane has the clean and pure lines with sensuality, which reminisce the delicate curves of the Moynat trunks; the intricate details and finishing, which requires the highest quality leathers and 20 working hours by the hands of an experienced artisan. 


The rounded bijou closure, which is a re-edition of an original Art Deco piece, pays a discrete and refined homage to the influences that have determined the history of Moynat: the city of Paris (the Art Deco period, a promise of the exceptional French savoir-faire) and the theatre world (Gabrielle Réjane, Moynat’s most renowned muse). 


Made of the Barenia leather, one of the most precious natural leathers you can find in France. It gains beautiful patina as it ages. Fine scratches can easily be rubbed off with the fingers or sponge. 

Actress Gabrille Réjane - Pauline Moynat's Muse


As one of the most renowned actresses of Belle Epoque and muse to couture houses including Poiret, Gabrielle Réjane became a dedicated fan, inspiring Pauline Moynat to design the first line of women’s handbags at the end of the 19th century, thus pioneering a modern approach to travel for women. 

The talented and adventurous actress was well known for being a woman of character, full of charm and humour; gained huge success not only in Paris but also on the stages of London and New York. At the beginning of 20th century, Moynat created the Réjane bag in her honour, which was the first handbag ever to be named after a star of its time.

FROM MONTECARLO WITH LOVE...... AND CROC! D'ORA TOKAI LAUNCHES 'MUNDU'



Well known for her very feminine leather suits inspired by Montecarlo's driving heritage, we were rather intrigued by designer Dora Tokai's latest venture for her brand D'Ora Tokai: a personalised croc bag named "MUNDU".

Mundu's shape is inspired by the wheel of vintage racing cars, yet it is very reminiscent of those glamorous  purse/bags many Hollywood superstars used to carry in the 1950s and 1960s.  You can imagine the likes of Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Gloria Swanson clutching their precious purses as they descended the steps of their planes.










Its shape is not an easy one to carry off, and the price doesn't make it accessible to all .... 8,888 Euros which includes personalisation and shipping, but if your looking for a bag to make a statement this will undoubtably do the trick!

Choose from 39 colours and a variety of precious metal and gemstone studs and customise your very own Mundu.


Each Mundu bag carries its own custom serial number, the owner’s name and/or a personal message engraved onto a round gold plate, which is placed on the inside. Mundu incorporates several compartments creating space for an iPhone and iPad. 





If you want to achieve the full Dora Tokai look then you can go for the some eye catching ensembles inspired by the Principality's Driving heritage such as the rather luscious pink VAGA



Or  a powerful all black Orchidee dress combined with D'Ora Tokai, hat, gloves and shoes!
