DUNHILL introduces the Spring Swallows capsule collection to celebrate 2021 Lunar New Year. Inspired by the design on a Namiki table lighter discovered in the House archive, the swallos were chosen for their representation of good fortune, wealth and love.
Often found in pairs, these devoted birds signal the start of spring and in Chinese culture, symbolized a positive step into the new year.
Applying this beautiful archive imagery to a curated selection of casual wear, sneakers and leather goods, the motifs are brought to life using a layered digital printing technique on leather and embroidery on ready-to-wear. Creating a luxurious sense of depth and texture, these methods enhance the collection with a richer and more contemporary feels.
