A few years later, the Réjane saw the light of day. After an extended silence, the exceptional Réjane has today been exhumed and brought to the next level by the talented and inspired Indian creative director of Moynat, Ramesh Nair. A transplant from Hermès, with a diploma from Paris’ prestigious Institut Français de la Mode, “he’s an enthusiast of archives, skimming through flea markets, sales floors, surfing the web to better soak up the history of the design house…” indicates Guillaume Davin, President of the Moynat house.
Devoted to the liberty and eclecticism incarnated by the actress, the Réjane becomes an actor itself, multi-form, at any time of day and for any woman, it can be used as a classic handbag or worn on the shoulder, thanks to its adjustable strap. It’s available in a wide variety of fabrics and colors. “The line is directly inspired by the curves of past trunks that were meant to adopt the shapes of car trunks at the beginning of the 20th century down to the millimeter, a singularity and an emblematic signature of the design house” and “it’s fastener, a little jeweled seal, delicate and feminine, is one the fasteneres patented for the design house’s very first bag-suitcases, at the end of the 19th century, a precursor to the Art Deco movement”, confides Guillaume Davin.
The Réjane bag has always incarnated excellence and modesty, seducing with its aesthetic and grace like a beautiful reincarnation of the actress herself that the New York Times once called “the most elegant in Paris.”
