The Goyard ‘Cutlass’ blade design was created by artist Toland Grinnell who was commissioned by Serge Becker and Matt Goias of Miss Lily’s Jamaican restaurant to customize a piece of Jamaican culture.
Grinnell used original Goyard leather featuring the iconic monogrammed pattern of the fashion house’s logo to create a gorgeous sheath as well as tassels that house and decorate a large cutlass. The large blade made from stainless steel and the sheath is painted with yellow, black and green stripes symbolizing the Jamaican flag. The customized leather adds a luxurious design to the sword, infusing the Jamaican symbolism with a modern design that is most often seen on the handbags and wallets created by the French fashion house.
The Goyard blade design is currently on display at Miss Lily’s restaurant.
