Over the last few seasons, designer Kim Jones has done an excellent job at making Dunhill relevant as a viable, directional label for the men’s market. With the F/W 10 show taking place at Paris’ Palais de Tokyo and an invitation that included replicas of vintage postcards, it was clear that the inspiration was a sepia-tinged nostalgia for adventure. Classic English tailoring was combined with hiking boots, heavy socks layered over flannel pants and “survival belts”, complete with pen cases and dangling leather flasks. The cotton pocket squares that were tucked into suit jackets and blazers were printed with maps from around the globe. Continuing the season’s major theme of mixed materials, several outerwear pieces were pieced from leather and wool.
