dunhill presents a new gentleman’s eyewear collection for summer 2016. This collection, in association with De Rigo Vision, celebrates dunhill’s commitment to British excellence and to creativity, craftsmanship and innovation.June 16 / 2016
The Longtail family has a timeless aesthetic with subtle references to dunhill heritage throughout. A refined double “L” from the signature logo comes to the fore as a key temple and front piece detail. From the wide front aviator to the classic rounded frame, the essential dunhill values of craftsmanship, quality and masculinity are deep-rooted in Longtail eyewear.
The Icon family takes a contemporary look at classic eyewear. Signature archive references and dunhill engine turned metal are represented throughout the range. The metal and acetate of the double bridged masculine aviator is complemented by the elegant wayfarer style. Additional key details include subtle Longtail references in metal and distinctive square-front frames.
A distinguished collection inspired by dunhill’s automotive pedigree, the Heritage family has timeless quality and contemporary appeal. Heritage is characterised by a larger, more rounded acetate lens, double bridge detailing and dunhill’s understated hallmark barley pattern. The updated nod to the classic aviator will elevate and refine a gentleman’s summer wardrobe.
Since the original Motorities, the faceted shape has been an integral dunhill design signature; that heritage and history is rooted in the Facet family eyewear. The collection is characterised by round vintage-inspired acetate frames and an elegant temple design crafted from Japanese titanium. Superior modern comfort and lightness, as well as a vintage-inspired look, sets these sunglasses apart.
