Pharrell collaborates with Moynat on a line of leatherwear
Making himself happy
... And so it was only a matter of time before they joined forces to create a capsule range of handbags shaped like vintage steam locomotives.
The train bag, in "hand-tooled acrylic resin or hand-carved ebony", is to be revealed at Colette on October 13 and arrive a week later at Moynat boutiques in both Paris and London.
The collaboration represents a sense of newness for the heritage label Moynat, which is mainly concerned with ladylike bags in luxury leathers and exotic skins.
According to Moynat, Sarah Andelman, Colette's creative and purchasing director, introduced the singer to the brand, before he toured its Paris atelier, and ordered a 'Pauline' bag decorated with hand-painted tools and struck up a friendship with Moynat creative director Ramesh Nair, and they soon got to designing.
