Summer, the season most look forward to, has arrived in many places around the world, bringing glorious sunny days and warm evenings. And because summer is not meant to stay indoors, we offer three perfect excuses to go out and enjoy it.
The perfect complement
There is no better way to lux up the warm summer evenings than taking a glass of Moët Ice Imperial in company of dear friends. This special edition of Moët, previously available only in a few select bars during the summer, is a carefully devised mix created by Moët Champagne’s cellar master, Benoit Gouez to bring a delightful range of fruity flavors ideal for this time of the year. For this occasion, the long awaited arrival of Moët Ice Imperial comes with a luxurious trunk–an exquisite portable bar. Dubbed Moët Ice Imperial Limited Edition Summer Escape Trunk, it comes equipped with 24 flutes and five ice buckets, perfectly placed in its interior. Ready to move to any location, the Moët Ice Imperial Limited Edition Summer Escape Trunk is ideal for lunch around the pool, a day at the beach, or a picnic by the countryside, and it even features a compartment specially designed for fresh ingredients, like mint leaves or lemon peels.
A Parisian classic
Moynat, the famous Parisian firm so successful during the 19th century and the Belle Époque is making a resounding comeback. Renowned for handcrafting beautiful luggage tailored from the finest materials, its stamp has accompanied discerning travelers with unique, lightweight and elegant designs. In fact, many of its creations have been included in traveling exhibitions, showing all over the world as icons of the art deco style. Just three years ago, the Moynat firm marked a triumphant return to the French capital with a small boutique on the distinguished Rue Saint Honoré. After its debut, collectors and neophytes came to admire the firm´s vintage pieces. Among the handiest designs is the vanity inspired by the Limousine suitcase. Decorated with the brand’s characteristic emblem, this vanity case heralds a whole new level of elegance with handmade finishes by Moynat craftsmen. You can even add your personal touch to make it a one in a million piece.
At first glance, Mon Oncle looks like a simple suitcase with a spectacular design and vintage details. However, it is much more than that: this elegant trunk opens to reveal a peculiar portable grill. Mon Oncle is definitely a step up from the traditional concept of outdoor barbecues. Innovative, durable and very useful, this grill is ideal for transforming a simple picnic into a clambake bash, or to be used in the garden, terrace or balcony. It is extremely easy to dismantle and store, and its structure is covered with small perforations that not only give it a more attractive appearance, but allow air to flow and increase the firepower to make sure the grill does not overheat. ■
