MOYNAT Opens @ The Landmark Hong Kong


 Since its inception by Pauline Moynat in 1849, Moynat has always been recognized as an emblem of discreet and uncompromising luxury with the ultimate Parisian charm. Its maisons de vente (flagship stores) at 348 rue Saint-Honoré in Paris and 112 Mount Street in London have become the haunt of connoisseurs looking for splendid and unusual pieces. Now, Moynat travels to Asia for the first time in its history to bring the House’s strong and personal style signature to the heart of Central Hong Kong at Landmark. Pauline Moynat, a visionary and the only woman trunk-maker in history, founded Moynat in 1849, and soon made the house the most Parisian among the French leathergoods and trunk makers of her time.
   

The new store includes women's and men's leather goods and accessories, trunks and textiles. The gallery also takes orders for the signature personalization service, from hand painting of initials, to made-to-measure trunks and handbags. Designed as a precious and secret gem from Paris, the “gallery” has the Havana color of antique Moynat trunks, thus creating an jewel box-like background for the sensual Moynat collection. Heritage and modernity dialogue in a surprising composition of suspended displays and highlights. “The Parisian twist is always a delicate chemistry of impertinence, refinement and creativity rooted in the history of the city of light. This gallery is an expression of this chemistry, which will allow visitors to discover a different aspect of Paris through the eyes of Moynat.” says the architect Gwenael Nicolas, director of Curiosity.
