DUNHILL IS BACK

It's been almost a decade since Hedi Slimane revived Dior Homme, turning a staid suit label into a fashion powerhouse, and five years since Raf Simons directed Jil Sander back to its minimalist roots. Men's fashion has been jonesing for a young Turk ever since, and it will finally get its fix this fall when Kim Jones' first collection for Dunhill arrives in stores.

It's been almost a decade since Hedi Slimane revived Dior Homme, turning a staid suit label into a fashion powerhouse, and five years since Raf Simons directed Jil Sander back to its minimalist roots. Men's fashion has been jonesing for a young Turk ever since, and it will finally get its fix this fall when Kim Jones' first collection for Dunhill arrives in stores. At first glance, Jones, a 29-year-old English designer known for sophisticated streetwear, and Dunhill, a 117-year-old British luxury house known for its jet-set clientele, fine suiting, and, of course, tobacciana, make for strange bedfellows. But a youthful injection was just what Dunhill needed. Courtney Colavita

Watch Key

It's a mini⿿pocket watch; it's your house key. It's beautifully simple. One of Alfred Dunhill's earliest inventions is back. [($5,000) by Dunhill, 212-753-9292]

Blazer

When does a blazer turn into something unexpected? When it circumvents tradition. Jones stripped off the lapel of the classic navy sport jacket. [($1,500) by Dunhill, 212-753-9292]

In his debut collection, Jones displayed his idiosyncratic touch with color-block cashmere knits, skinny wool pants, and streamlined briefcases.
