DUBAI — “We only decide to open a boutique if we are offered a nice location,” Guillaume Davin, president of Moynat, said in an exclusive interview on the opening of the firm’s first boutique in the Middle East. The latest location for the heritage French leather goods maker is in the shadow of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, inside the Dubai Mall.
“We have always thought that Moynat should only be in 10 to 12 cities around the world and Dubai was part of that,” said Davin. “Moynat is a leather goods maker, but we are also about poetry, form and function. It’s about making beautiful things. Dubai has this same poetry: it’s very much about architecture and modernity.”
