For Spring Summer 2021, dunhill celebrates craft, utility and the subversion of British tailoring codes.
Fusing New Romanticism with relaxed Japanese and Italian tailoring, previously hidden materials and techniques are revealed. Chosen for their purity and naturalness, traditional reinforcing fabrics such as chest canvas, shoulder canvas and Linen Holland are brought to the fore. Used to construct relaxed, evening and signature half-wrap jackets, they are paired with trousers in a utility or strapped style and belted at the waist.
Silk acetate brings a sheer quality to selected pieces, hinting at the garments underneath. Details including pad stitching – an invisible, strong stitch, used to keep internal layers in place – embellish external collars and lapels. Highlighting the beauty of function, these exposed elements become decoration.
Available in store and online from March 2021 prices range from: 1,650 AED – 11,500 AED.
