The Smith + Parka Atelier

The first non-food shop in The Market Line providing products that showcase the craftsmanship and designs of native New Yorker & creative, David Lee.

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.

A degree in menswear tailoring, a 20-year fashion career, and life experiences
prepared him to create Smith+Parka as an authentic New York lifestyle brand.

The Smith+Parka Atelier creates special and unique accessories daily,
as inspired by the many talented chefs within the market and community.
