We design handcrafted leather accessories in NYC for the urban dweller who values quality, functionality, and supporting small businesses. We believe in the power of handmade goods and the stories they tell. Our mission is to create timeless, beautiful, functional pieces while staying true to our commitment to our unique minimal design philosophy and practices.
Founded in 2014 as a conceptual design studio, Smith + Parka has evolved from a passion project to a lifestyle brand. Based on a foundation of 20 years in the fashion industry, designer and F.I.T. alumni David Lee utilizes his knowledge of menswear tailoring to create unique pieces for everyday use. Only using quality materials and trims, each detail is carefully curated to create functional designs emphasizing minimalism and beauty.
David hand crafts every product offered.
SOLO SLING CROSSBODY
Our hero product is the amazing Solo sling crossbody. Designed to be minimal, functional and unisex, the Solo is currently the slimmest crossbody on the market.
Smith + Parka stands by its craftsmanship and products. Every product is covered by a lifetime warranty from the day it was purchased when used under normal conditions and for the purpose intended. We understand that normal wear and tear happens throughout the lifetime of any product.
This warranty covers faults in materials and workmanship and doesn't apply if the damage is caused by unreasonable use or neglect, normal wear, and tear, or if you change your mind.
To make a warranty claim, you need to contact us directly via email here. Please provide pictures and a detailed explanation of any issue/ faultiness that your product is going through. We will resolve the issue with a repair or a new product.
CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY
Every Smith + Parka product comes with a certificate of authenticity that guarantees our lifetime warranty. Each certificate is signed by designer and maker David Lee, marked with the date of production. You will notice the blue, white and orange flag flush on the center bottom, which represents the state of New York where each product is proudly produced. We are proud of every piece with release into the wild and this certificate highlights that.
The Smith + Parka Atelier
Developing as an ever-evolving shopping experience, The Smith+Parka Atelier delivers an intimate in-person interaction with the designer. Every piece is individually designed and sewn by David.
