I'm off to Dunhill this week...




I recently discovered that Dunhill have been showcasing the brand of G. Lorenzi in the Discovery Room of their Mayfair store, Bourdon House (the former home of the Duke of Westminster) during London Collections Men. Anyone interested in beautiful grooming accessories: pay attention.
 
Known for making knives of all sizes, they started to become a bit of a masculine emporium selling pipes, cigar cutters and cases, lighters and humidifiers - all the requisites for smokers. Not to mention the shaving brushes, bowls, razors, mirrors, manicure and grooming sets, shoe horns, hair and clothes brushes for the dandies of Milan. 

The showcase has been extended to Thursday this week and includes 230 items from Aldo Lorenzi’s archive collection, as well as historic sketches, a photo essay by Annabel Elston shot at G. Lorenzi over its final days and a three minute short film commissioned by Dunhill featuring Aldo Lorenzi. 

Claridge's Bar is nearby for libations.
