Duke + Dexter Collaboration with Playboy
Duke + Dexter are launching a new collection with playboy. The collection will take you back to the golden age of playboy; penthouse parties, high fashion, and the nostalgia of holding your favorite publication in your hands.
The Duke + Dexter x Playboy collaboration shows today’s Playboy as exactly what he’s meant to be – the modern gentleman. The exclusive 250 pair run of shoes and accessories range from $50 – $ 340 and launch May 2021 on www.dukeanddexter.com
The limited-edition collection highlights Playboy’s influence throughout history, blending the freedom and self-expression of an American icon with the flare and subversive attitude of one of London’s leading footwear labels.
The eight original designs feature everything from vintage cartoons on loafers to unique all-over bunny embossed slippers and are all made in England at D+D’s factory. SLGs include two style cardholders and a decadent single silk robe in monochromatic camo, specially made with British tailor Joseph Darcy.
Artist and model Luka Sabbat stars in the campaign styled by George Cortina and shot by Menelik Puryear on 35mm film at the infamous La Dolce Vita restaurant. Sabbat, who’s recent rise has him pinned as the poster boy of a forward-thinking generation exudes the classic cool of the vintage Playboy spirit.
“It’s a privilege to team up with Playboy – an icon that’s relevance and reverence has stood the test of time. We’re really excited to show who the modern Duke + Dexter Playboy is – subversive, tasteful and ultimately, aware. This collection celebrates the golden era of one of the world’s most iconic magazines, honoring it’s class and style in all the right ways with Luka Sabbat,” said Archie Hewlett, Founder & CEO of Duke + Dexter.
