Alfred Dunhill Autumn Winter 2015 Duke Leather


Duke Tan Large Zip Tote

Illustrating true expertise in creating fine luggage, the Duke Leather collection from Alfred Dunhill is intricately hand-crafted by leather artisans ensuring that each piece has a character all of its own with every stitch, crease and curve applied with exact precision. Fashioned in French calf hide that has been carefully selected, and with a depth and richness of color achieved by vegetable and chrome tanning that increases the bags’ suppleness, the collection will only improve with age and become a future heirloom and provenance item.

Details on the Duke Leather collection include leather straps evocative of Alfred Dunhill’s humble beginnings as a harness maker in 1893. The hardware takes a number of influences from Dunhill’s rich archive, with examples including the soft silver finish on the brass fastenings reflecting that of a Dunhill pocket watch, mushroom rivets featuring 1893 branding and the “AD” stamp, engine turn detail on zip pulls as featured on early Dunhill lighters and a facet shaped padlock inspired by Rolls-Royce headlamps designed by Alfred Dunhill.

The Duke collection includes small and large zip totes which have a more formal and traditionally casual shape with generous internal space that allows for quick packing for a last minute getaway. The flap briefcase is a more formal case with padlocked entry, while the zip folio is an elegant way to carry a small number of files. The Duke Holdall is a handsome representation of a classic British design and the Clifton 24-hour bag is ideal for an overnight stay. Lastly, the final member of the Duke family is the beautifully structured Audley tote with a fold down top and secure stud closure.
