PARK makes luxury accessories for the sporting life. The designs—beautiful and functional in equal measure—are inspired by the inherent elegance and rugged authenticity of a classic Northern Ontario lifestyle. They reference a time when outings and sporting events were equipped with wooden tennis rackets and cross country skis, plaid thermoses and wicker picnic baskets, all made of the finest materials by skilled craftsmen.
PARK accessories are luxurious but never frivolous. From Italian coated canvas to sleek vachetta leather, exceptional materials are sourced from leading mills and ateliers around the world. Water-resistant finishes and durable linings ensure enduring performance. Touches of fox fur and Scottish plaid add the understated splendor and timeless character for which the brand is known. Every piece bears the PARK crest, an insignia that has come to stand for quality, authenticity and original style.
About The Designer
Anne-Marie Olson was born in Ottawa Canada, where she spent her formative years as a competitive swimmer, skier and triathlete. She also enjoyed fishing in lakes, playing tournament tennis and learning to golf. Her very active lifestyle still includes kayaking, sailing, skiing and shooting sporting clay.
After graduating from the University of Western Ontario and attending design school, Anne-Marie moved to New York City to work designing accessories for such important brands as Ralph Lauren and Kenneth Cole. Two decades later, she merged her passion for the sporting life with her experience in fashion to create PARK. In addition to Anne-Marie’s love of style and the great outdoors, the collection reflects the European traditions and Scandinavian aesthetics of her revered grandparents, whose respect for quality and functionality is evident in the brand’s finely crafted modern designs.
