London Men's Fashion Week SS16: Alfred Dunhill

London Men's Fashion Week SS16: Alfred Dunhill

To the stables

Alfred Dunhill returns to its roots in saddlery with an equestrian-inspired collection for spring 2016

1. Long weekend essentials 
Among the repertoire of bags, the collection sported a wide array of carry-alls ideal for the weekend. In luxurious leather, contrasting colours and textures, the bags are already on our must-have list.

2. Loosening things up 
Fit is the thing all men swear by. In his third collection for Dunhill, creative director John Ray challenges the traditional notion of form-fitting pants for a relaxed fit, with trousers worn loose and cuffed at the ankles. It seems that British menswear is shedding its stiff upper lip.

3. Top dog
Hats ruled the runway, with differing heights topping the season. Pharrell would be on Dunhill's mailing list, we expect.

4. Mother earth would be proud
Earthy tones washed over the runway, with the seating area decked out in a plush champagne hue. Bags were mustard-coloured, while greys in differing shades dominated the tailored suits, suede and long jackets. Salmon pink also peeked out from polka dot ties, bow ties, vests and brooches for added flair.

5. Gentlemen's club
The attendees were the who's who of dream club memberships: Hu Bing, Henry Cavill, Tinie Tempah and Nick Grimshaw showed their support for the heritage brand in the season's latest wares. Hu Bing, in particular, went part race-car mode in leather gloves.
