Moynat x Pharrell Williams

Something Different: Moynat x Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams is not only happy, but busy. His many recent collabs — with adidas, Comme des Garçons, Timberland, Uniqlo, G-Star Raw — now include bags for Moynat. According to the heritage maker of leather goods, during the rapper's visit to the Paris atelier a year ago, he was taken with a collection of vintage trunks and discovered an old Moynat label with the image of a train. He said it reminded him of the 1940s musical The Harvey Girls, a tribute to the working women of New England who helped settle the West. Coincidentally, Moynat's artistic director had been listening to Jimi Hendrix’s Hear My Train A Comin’. Thus a train theme was born. The Moynat x Pharrell Williams collection consists of four bags: a minaudière in hand-tooled plastic resin, a clutch in hand-sculpted ebony, and two pochettes, one featuring a toy train in leather marquetry and the other printed with Constructivist-style graphics.

At Colette in Paris starting October 13, Moynat boutiques starting October 20, and Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo and Dover Street Market in New York later in 2014
