WHY SO SERIOUS?
No really, we personally think that MOYNAT Spring/Summer 2018 collection is the fashion house”s retort against anyone who think that luxury brands with storied heritage have to always follow strict shapes, styles and the likes, and can’t have fun even if the occasion calls for it.
From top to bottom (in clockwise direction): Mini Danse in Taurillon nubuck, Mini Vanity 1925 Marquetery in Natural calf, Gabrielle Reporter Gipsy 2 in Carat calf, Cabotine in Natural cow, Mini Gabrielle 1925 Studded in Box calf, and Quattro Vertical in Croco nubuck
This is the reason why we found particular delight in the expressive imagination of artistic director Ramesh Nair, as he draws inspiration from the Mythical Memphis. In doing so, he used the technique of creative geometry to incorporate personality onto the rich leather of the iconic Gabrielle, Réjane and Quattro.

This playfulness of form by taking away the bags’ structure and refitting them with new contours indeed provides a refreshing, transformative perspective.
One particular bag is the new Gaby, which showcases an instance of tri-dimensional poetry as its clean, graphic lines drew subtle inspiration from the curves of the Limousine trunks.
Fans of the Mini Vanity will also relish in Mini Pyramid, its triangular counterpart, and Mini Sphere (below), its rounded counterpart.
