DILUSSO SURPRISE BOX, FROM £11,500 WORDS Max Williams
What do you give the man who has everything? Simple: a box. Not cardboard, we hasten to add, but rather one of the mahogany Dilusso variety. The brand’s name is taken from the Italian phrase di lusso, meaning ‘of luxury’, and it’s fair to say its gift boxes live up to this moniker. Inside you will discover a variety of high-end essentials for the luxury-loving modern gent. Swiss watches, designer sunglasses, premium cigars: each box is a veritable trove of treasures. Going through its contents is probably the closest you’ll get to replicating the boyish excitement
of rifling through Santa’s stocking. Only rather than a tangerine, you might discover, say, an Hermès belt. Boxes are curated by an influencer or personality from a suitable industry, such as style blogger True Gentleman or businessman Kayode Modupe-Ojo. Prices vary depending on the curator: luxury watchmaker Panerai’s box costs £11,500 whereas Modupe-Ojo’s completely bespoke box retails at £35,000. Regardless of curator, a Dilusso is one box you definitely want to think inside. ■ For more information visit dilusso.us
