One of BDMOTP’s favorite British fashion brands, dunhill, has announced they’ve hired a new creative director, Mark Weston. Some of his vision for the brand will be shown as part of the Autumn Winter 2017 collection at London Fashion Week: Men’s this June, which BDMOTP will surely have an opportunity to check out (and report back, of course).
Mark Weston comes to dunhill from the brand Burberry, and his goal is to bring a classic yet relevant design aesthetic to the brand. The brand itself dates back to 1893 and not only creates menswear clothing but also delves into fun accessories that yet again, remind us what it means to be a Brit.
BDMOTP has always been a fan of dunhill’s British bespoke designs. In fact, we love the brand for gifts. With Father’s Day coming up, the accessories like flasks, keychains, money clips, vintage lighters and even Backgammon sets make for great gifts. Let’s hope Mark Weston doesn’t plan to get rid of any of their fabulous accessories (or dapper, preppy jackets, bowties and printed shirts either). Or their chic leather goods, which BDMOTP especially loves in the form of wallets and change holders. In any case, we look forward to see what Mark Weston will bring to this iconic English brand.
