Dunhill’s functional approach to traditional bag styles means the British label is always up to the job for the modern businessman. This season, the iconic Duke collection comes in a professional black colourway, available in four styles: Small Zip Tote, Flap Briefcase, Audley Tote and Folio with Lock. Crafted in luxurious calfskin, the depth of colour is achieved through vegetable and chrome tanning, which provides a protective patina. All the bags are lined in vintage cotton, and feature signature hardware plated with an alloy of gold and black ruthenium (inspired by a vintage Dunhill pocketwatch).
The business staple Flap Briefcase is a sturdy holdall with a main compartment for laptop and files, a zipped compartment, a small zipped sleeve pocket and phone pockets. Drawing from Dunhill’s archives, the facet-shaped padlock on the flap is influenced by Rolls Royce headlamps designed by Alfred Dunhill himself. Those who prefer a larger option can opt for the beautifully structured Audley Tote, which has generous internal space for gym or travel use.
