Dunhill has just unveiled its Fall/Winter’ 16 campaign – or, as we prefer to call it, The Guide to Being a British Gentleman 101 by Guy Robinson. Shot by John Balsam and styled by Dan May, we’re treated to a short film as well as a visual series, and we’re not complaining because there’s so much eye candy.
We’re not just referring to Guy Robinson, of course (although he is eye candy); Dunhill’s sophisticated threads take centre-stage. Congruent to the label’s usual codes of British masculinity, motoring-inspired leather blousons and military-inspired overcoats hark back to the uniforms of gentlemen during World War One. All work and no play makes Guy a dull boy, however; for weekend wear, one need only look to the luxurious alpaca-cashmere knits layered underneath, a subtle nod to British sport clubs of the past.
Dunhill champions the timeless elegance of the gentleman, and it doesn’t seem like it will relent on that any time soon. Watch the short film below (although we have to warn you that Robinson’s smirk is very sexy).
