Equipping the gentleman since 1893’ dunhill presents the new gentleman’s eyewear collection for Spring/Summer 2016. In association with De Rigo Vision, this collection celebrates the house’s on-going commitment to British excellence based on creativity, craftsmanship and innovation.
Unmistakably British in style and refinement, combined with Italian know-how, dunhill presents a collection of optics and sunglasses that honours the aesthetic codes of the house marked by exquisitely refined details and materials. The origins of dunhill – rooted in the world of motoring and car accessories – are referenced via the sophisticated workmanship of house identifiers. Signature features include: the iconic double “L” of the dunhill longtail logo and the dunhill longtail logo metal plaque; aesthetic elements of the collection that customise the inside of the temple tips with distinction.
The dunhill eyewear collection is offered in four main product families: Longtail – referencing our primary logo and universal signature, ICON – in tribute to dunhill’s creation of unmistakably singular products, Heritage – in reference to dunhill’s rich automotive history and lastly Facet – a brand signifier used on dunhill time pieces and hard products since 1936.
Style, elegance and sophistication are also reflected in the colors, with gold and silver in the prevailing metal styles, and the full range of tortoise shell shades dominating the acetate style, together with classic black and blue. Special attention is paid to the fit, all frames are made with a universal bridge, the quality of the lenses are paramount, and all the sunglasses comes with anti-glare lenses. Half the models are also polarized to ensure perfect vision and optimal resolution.
