Vivaldi’s concertos have been reimagined by London based singer,… Read more »

Aidan Turner x dunhill AW17

I do like Aidan Turner, he of Poldark fame. He has a certain style that lends itself to an aesthetic that gravitates towards dress casual, something which dunhill have been doing really well aside from their stunning tailoring.

For many, its firmly-tongue-in-cheek dialogue, outlandish stunts and final scene firmly hinting on a very specific aspect to sex was not was expected.
