Parke & Ronen is the product of two remarkable designers with an inspired vision for a unique fashion company. Preferring chic sensuality to glitz and gimmicks, Parke Lutter and Ronen Jehezkel created Parke & Ronen.
While always in touch with the latest trends, the Parke & Ronen customer does not fall victim to extreme looks. Refined details, quality fabrics, and exquisite fit are the hallmarks of the Parke & Ronen look, attracting clients who choose to dress simply yet look sensational.
The Parke & Ronen collection includes the extremely popular men’s swim collection and the menswear collection that offers a wide variety of shirts, pants, shorts, sportswear, footwear, and accessories; they are sold in top stores across the country and overseas, as well as in their New York boutique.
When Ronen Jehezkel arrived in New York in 1991 after having attained his degree in Alta Moda (Italian Haute Couture) from the highly regarded Instituto Europeo Di Design in Rome, Italy, he wanted to literally take his dream of fashion success to the streets. With a mere $500 investment and small collections of vests, produced in his Soho loft, the seeds of this young, innovative company were planted. Building on the initial success of this venture, Ronen moved his operation to a studio and storefront in Tribeca.
Then in 1993, Ronen met Parke Lutter; a design student at the Parsons School of Design. Shortly after Parke attained his degree in Fashion Design, in 1997, the two joined forces to open a new company and launch Parke & Ronen. Their contrasting backgrounds fused the European traditions of haute couture and the American sensibilities of Seventh Avenue, resulting in an exceptional creative synergy.
