MOYNAT

Gervois - - Moynat Luggage -

“Moynat is a personal project of Bernard Ar­naud, LVMH’s CEO. Founded in Paris in 1849, Moynat closed its bou­tique in 1976 and the brand nearly dis­ap­peared for­ever. Re­launched in 2011 with Ramesh Nair as Head of de­sign and Guil­laume Davin as Gen­eral Man­ager, Moynat is on the path of be­com­ing a com­peti­tor to Her­mès, as the LVMH group could not (yet) pur­chase this iconic brand. We love the ex­treme ele­gance of Ramesh Nair’s cre­ations. The qual­ity of Moynat prod­ucts is reg­u­larly im­prov­ing as hir­ing for­mer Her­mès em­ploy­ees is not suf­fi­cient in it­self to ob­tain the same qual­ity, and the first Moynat cre­ations in 2011/2012 were not tech­ni­cally per­fect. But th­ese is­sues are solved now and the qual­ity is now im­pec­ca­ble. Wear­ing a Moynat prod­uct says a lot about a trav­eler, who has al­ready plenty of Louis Vuit­ton and Her­mès bags, and wants to show his so­cial power and sta­tus in an un­der­stated man­ner. The ser­vice at the Paris flag­ship store is ex­cel­lent, but their New York City store should im­prove the cus­tomer ser­vice. The so called Parisian ar­ro­gance is not cool in NYC.”
