Among the entrancing items on display at London luxury goods firm Dunhill's new temporary installation space in Manhattan's Meatpacking District is this pair of striking hiking boots finished in dark green genuine alligator skin. Perhaps not terribly practical for actual outdoor expeditions they're nonetheless extremely dashing. Designed to evoke Bourdon House, the Dunhill flagship in London set in a historic mansion that was formerly the residence of the Duke of Westminster, the installation features key pieces from the Dunhill archives alongside new items from the Autumn / Winter 2010 collection. The collection was inspired by a gentleman adventurer from the 1920s with exceedingly good taste, dubbed the "Radical Englishman Abroad." Just the sort of chap to sport a pair of green gator boots.
