Introducing a new photographic series celebrating the dunhill Lock Bag. An interplay of House heritage and contemporary functionality, this new icon is inspired by classic British attaché cases from our archive. With its structural shape and sense of modernity and tradition, the Lock Bag reflects the evolving landscape of the city.

Captured at different sites throughout London by photographer Chris Rhodes – the Bank of England, Tower Bridge, Saint Martins, Soho, Trafalgar Square and Mount Street provide the backdrop. Representing the diverse nature of the capital’s culture, history and architecture, these notable locations embody the renewed codes of the House under Creative Director, Mark Weston.
