Moynat’s Classic Silhouette Just Got A Modern Makeover



March 2022

Putting a modern-day spin on an old school classic, Nicholas Knightly is kicking off Moynat’s next chapter in style

When Nicholas Knightly joined Moynat last year as creative director, it marked a new page in the history of the French trunkmaker. Jumping in head first, he took it upon himself to revamp six of the House’s most iconic bags, including Flori, Voyage, Little Suitcase and the Wheel.

The Wheel BB in Canvas 1920 M Monogram

Inspired by Moynat’s vintage trunks and created right at the dawn of motoring at the beginning of the 20th century, the cylindrical Wheel bag comes fashioned after the spare tyre cases of the time. Lined in goatskin and featuring a removable card holder plus detachable strap that allows for plenty of versatility, it’s so far, so chic. A house classic, under Nicholas Knightly’s creative direction the reimagined style manages to keep the brand’s heritage in place while modernising the iconic monogram for a new look that feels anything but dated.

The Wheel BB in Satin Calfskin

“The Wheel was first created in 1907 and represents everything the brand stands for, and is now reinterpreted for modern daily life,” Knightly tells MOJEH. It’s got enough room to fit a smartphone, compact and lipstick. What else do you need? Available at Moynat stores nationwide and online
