Dunhill serves up a dark fall-winter 2020 collection with a splash of the old guard and New Romantics.
Dunhill is not one thing, it’s many, explains the brand’s creative director, Mark Weston.
The man in this collection is a cross between the preppy and the new wave, Weston presents a stylish hero that could easily find himself in a modern-day Blitz Club. While expertise in British tailoring forms the foundation of the collection, codes are redefined with a fun mix of shapes and details. The season champions key pieces such as pegged trousers or a strapped jacket and silk knit neckpiece. Leather outerwear, capes, and overcoats also make a statement, alongside choice footwear like a pair of brothel creepers.
the establishment and the anti-establishment – it is not about making purely singular characters. Instead, it is about taking all those elements and putting them together, reconstructing and recontextualizing.
