Dunhill brings professional elegance to the Duke collection

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.
