TO BIRKIN OR NOT TO BIRKIN.... MOYNAT IS THE ANSWER!

Hérmes Birkin
As the news on the arrests made in France over the last several weeks of individuals involved in a ring for trafficking in fake Hermès handbags)  (see here for further details) we have to question whether buying a much coveted HERMÈS Birkin or Kelly is still the right thing to do.  

Of course most Birkin or Kelly aficionados will undoubtably be shocked that we might be even questioning the validity of the purchase of a Birkin which to this date is the most wanted bag on the face of the planet with never ending waiting lists particularly in the ex USSR, the Middle East and many emerging and ex emerging markets.  


Moynat Pauline
Nonetheless we feel compelled to suggest that maybe, just maybe,  if one is looking for exclusivity and luxury one should perhaps be looking elsewhere, where provenance is guaranteed through an extremely limited and controlled distribution i.e. through one store! 

Since it opened it's single store on 348 Rue Saint Honoré just up the road from Hermès, MOYNAT  has been become the place to go to purchase a bag for those who were sick of people asking if their Birkin was a real HERMÈS or a good copy!  

Indeed Moynat is viewed by those in the know how as having all the qualities that a luxury handbag should have fine craftsmanship, endurance, discretion, elegance and innovative design whose exclusivity and provenance is de facto guaranteed by the fact that a MOYNAT bag can only be purchased from their single store in Paris.


As the Birkin is a must have bag today for just about any woman who has a penchant for beautiful bags, MOYNAT 's Pauline has become a must have for women who love bags, are used to exceptional luxury and who above all want exclusivity.

When we interviewed the President of MOYNAT  Guillaume Davin several months ago and asked how they were managing to deal with the scourge of counterfeits which were affecting many other luxury brands his answer was as follows:


First and foremost, there is only one MOYNAT  store in the world today, so all clients have to do to ensure their bags and luggage are the genuine article, is to purchase only from our stores.
Of course, we have also taken steps to ensure that all our designs are patented and registered.

It will be interesting to see how this evolves over the next few years as MOYNAT  builds momentum and HERMÈS fights back!  Watch this space!
