To mark the arrival of Day 8 – the dunhill digital view, the brand have created an exclusive film capturing London based illustrator Chris Dent as he works on a very special commission for dunhill.
An illustrator’s line is his signature. It was the intricate yet simple line that Chris Dent uses to create his densely informative cityscapes, which brought dunhill to approach him with a very unique proposition; to capture the four Homes of Alfred Dunhill, in London, Hong Kong, Shanghai & Tokyo, in one piece of work.
The result is a magnificent, sprawling cityscape that depicts Bourdon House (London Home), Prince’s Building (Hong Kong Home), the Twin Villas (Shanghai Home) & Ginza (Tokyo Home) neighbouring each other while the iconic Oriental Pearl (Shanghai) brushes shoulders with the Millennium Dome (London) and the Bank of China (Hong Kong).
Day 8 is not a blog, or an e-zine, it is the world viewed through the dunhill eye.
To celebrate the launch of Day 8, dunhill will be selling 20 limited edition signed prints of this piece of urban art exclusively on the dunhill website.
