The stellar design team behind Parke & Ronen held an exclusive presentation of their 2014 Resort collection in New York City Monday night, including a wide array of new styles, a host of handsome models, and a giant birthday cake to celebrate Ronen Jehezkel’s birthday—presented by none other than Tyson Beckford.
Held at the club formerly known as Bungalow 8 (now simply known as No. 8) and sponsored by Bulldog Gin, the event introduced the label’s new Resort looks for 2014 in three acts. The new collection was marked by the brand’s signature upscale and casual yet bold style, featuring fine gauge patterns, color blocking and an emphasis on different shades of primary colors.
From what we saw at Monday night’s sneak preview, we’re psyched for the collection’s official release in late 2013. Flip through the looks here to mark your picks in advance.
As if the thrill of debuting a new collection wasn’t enough for one night, try having Tyson and a team of underwear models present you with a giant birthday cake. As the birthday boy’s partner Parke Lutter said of the evening:
“We had a wonderful time! We had a really fun and supportive crowd, the collection looked great on our amazing cast, and we even got birthday cake from a supermodel.”
The official face of 2xist underwear, André Ziehe, was also on hand, you can check him out bottom left pointing at the giant cake for emphasis. Get to know the guy in this exclusive interview.
..and getting some final touches on his locks before the big to-do, like you do.
