French leather goods maker Moynat is joining the Mount Street juggernaut, setting its first boutique outside Paris on the luxurious London strip. The 2,000-square-foot unit opposite the Connaught hotel officially opened on March 12th.
The two-level London unit, boasting four arched display windows, is to showcase women’s products on the main floor, with men’s designs and a personalization atelier on the lower level. Several vintage trunks are displayed in the Mount Street unit, and Moynat has unveiled a new evening clutch with a handle resembling a vintage car door, plus a one-of-a-kind trunk for an electric scooter that can be tucked into the boot of the new Jaguar F-Type convertible.
Long term, Davin said Moynat aims to have one boutique in each of the 10 most important cities in the world — but not more to maintain its exclusive cachet.
