COLLECTIONS | Dunhill – Spring/Summer 2016
Tailcoats, top hats, and floral lapel pins opened the runway show for Dunhill. For a moment the audience was transported back to a time when men dressed for dinner and parties. It was like sneaking a glimpse of the glamorous lifestyles of British royalty.
Flawlessly, the collection transitioned to modern formal attire with double breasted suits, sport coats, and trench coats. Classic patterns were used within the designs like glen check, madras plaid, gingham and pinstripe. The patterns were showcased with the use of an earthy color palate.
Apart from the fact the entire collection was perfectly tailored, items like utility jackets, sportswear jackets, and ponchos were included in the show. These items were paired with accessories like leather riding boots, embossed leather bags, and fedoras. These looks could attend a gala as well as hunt in the shires of the UK.
Overall, Dunhill was able to recreate a gilded era for modern day.
