Meet Dunhill’s Spring/Summer 2017 Hampstead Range

Some of you may know Hampstead as a village in North London home to the United Kingdom’s most expensive housing and a number of its millionaires. What’s perhaps not so commonly known is that it was also where Alfred Dunhill himself was educated, at a private school by tutors until he was 15. Now, Hampstead has become the name of Dunhill’s latest collection of bags and accessories. According to the brand, the range is countryside-meets-metropolis “the perfect coming together for the Dunhill man”.

The cowhide leather and cotton-lined range mirrors the elegant restraint of the label’s automotive-tinged Spring/Summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection. Much like the garments, the understated key styles travel bag, document case, tote, rucksack and messenger bag cater to the busy gentleman on the go, for the workplace and weekend. They are offered in timeless, day-to-night hues synonymous with Dunhill: navy and dark brown. The travel bag, north south pouch and flap messenger also come with straps tastefully decorated with subtle stripe details.
