The “Mambo for Moynat” collection features Mambo’s unmistakable, graphic and colourful illustrations on leather accessories using the signature Moynat marquetry technique.
This collection also presents Mambo’s “Sweetness Galaxy” motif printed on Quattro totes in Taurillon leather and on silk twill scarves. The collection will be available at Moynat boutiques worldwide from October 2016.
Artistic director Ramesh Nair created a unique trunk that contains a foldout easel, one that can be pushed upright to hold up to 6 works, and in this case, Mambo’s works, which are now on display at Paris’ Le Bon Marché till 16 October. Then there are the leather pouches (shown above) featuring Mambo’s iconic ‘Portraits’ with the help of marquetery, a craft where leather pieces are cut out in different colours/shapes before they are ‘joined’ back to form the design. In other words, it’s not something as simple as a printed piece of leather.
