Essential: Alfred Dunhill Bourdon Collection

BRIEF ENCOUNTERED. If the leather business has long known to be dominated by neutral and dark spectrums, this year-end festivity brings Alfred Dunhill to unveil some vibrant shades in the leather collection titled Bourdon.

The essential pieces arrive in royal blue, red, green, orange and turquoise—undoubtedly the freshest we see of Dunhill this entire year. Beyond colors, the British luxury brand takes a detour to unstructured design and heavy-grain Italian cowhide leather. Functionality remains as the main approach to designs, in which multiple interior compartments and extendable shoulder straps complement the briefcases. Additionally, all items have the “AD” logo in stainless steel that provides hints of elegance and timelessness.
