(Whitley, Coventry – 13 March 2014). Jaguar has collaborated with luxury French luggage label Moynat to produce a bespoke trunk designed specifically to fit the Jaguar F-TYPE. The one-of-a-kind piece was created to celebrate the opening of Moynat’s first boutique outside Paris. It was unveiled at the official launch of Moynat’s Mount Street store in London last night.
Since its inception in 1849, Moynat has become renowned for production of made-to-measure luggage and travel accessories. The company specialises in designing custom trunks to match the paint finishes and fit the contours of various vehicles. The most famous example is the Limousine trunk, patented in 1902, with its curved bottom designed to fit on the roof of an automobile.
Moynat’s artistic director, Ramesh Nair, created the new concept piece with Jaguar, which itself is inspired by the Limousine trunk. Nair commented: “It was a pleasure to collaborate with Jaguar to create this piece. Our brands share a commitment to beautiful design combined with quality and functionality – qualities which are espoused in this bespoke trunk.”
The trunk fits perfectly into the F-TYPE boot, with the signature curves of the Moynat House. It took more than 900 working hours for the design and careful production of the trunk. The structure is moulded to form by hand with eight layers of wood. This is then covered by vegetal dyed leather in slate grey to match the car body, lined in mandarin orange colour, the signature colour of Moynat. Inside the trunk, an electric scooter is provided for use in urban areas.
In addition, Jaguar offers a range of bespoke F-TYPE luggage, including a five-piece range comprising two suitcases, laptop bag, garment bag and wash bag – each designed specifically to fit the boot space of the F-TYPE.
