During Paris fashion week, I visited the @moynat store for the first time; I had no idea what to expect, just that the brand was known for its strong reputation as a famous luxury house. As I met the creative director of Moynat @rameshnair_ he was very warm and accomodating.
Within that moment, I closed my eyes and took a deep breath as it was my first time having an in-depth conversation and rapport with a creative director of a luxury brand. As he shared with me the story behind his new collection, it became apparent just how grateful I felt to meet with this fine man who knows exactly what true ‘luxury’ is.
A storyteller with a strong vision for a brand and a collaborative attitude, who is not afraid to work with other artists.
His genuine humbleness makes the brand ‘Monyat’ just that extra bit special to me.
His work for Monyat handbags is something to truly be considered as ‘art’ or placed inside a museum. The craftsmanship and story attached to each one, tells a thousand words that simply can’t be compared to anything. His deep understanding and attention to detail of what luxury is all about is something I find admirable.
This current series entails his collaboration with Korean artist Lee Wan for the #diligence
handbag; Where the uncertainty to the panting of Lee Wan is the inspiration to make a handbag that is fit for a museum. I also would like to add that Ramesh’s wife, Rachna is such an inspiring and amazing woman.
The simplicity of the couple is what truly stuck with me and my gratitude for their kindness and willingness to take the time for me in Place Vendome, is massive. I will never forget that night as I was feeling a little down and sensitive but they made it extra special for me. Thank you for the wonderful experience! #moynat #rameshnair
