PART OF ONE. Each piece is carefully designed and produced with a singular goal in mind: to become one with its owner. This process – actualized as an emotion, an attachment, a kind of relationship – asserts individual perception at the nexus of utility and luxury. A metaphor for experience, each article represents a blank slate that morphs with context.

TECHNICALLY EXACTING. CONCEPTUALLY CLASSIC. A theory fundamental to the PARS UNUM design process, ‘classic’ is not a stationary set of ideas, but rather a sensibility that is continuously in transformation. Referencing late 1980s–1990s sport, the collection presents homage while perpetually musing on the next progression of classic, establishing an ever-evolving design paradigm.

HANDCRAFTED IN ITALY. PARS UNUM is produced by hand at a prestigious family-run facility in a small coastal town in Southern Italy. Led by a master pattern cutter, artisans carry knowledge and techniques from the ateliers of storied fashion houses. Supple vegetable-tanned Italian lambskin interplays with technical coated polyamide, accented by custom powder-coated hardware and industry-leading luxury zippers.
