Parrot

Parrot is an independent fashion agency responsible for putting a fresh wave of contemporary European labels on the world map of luxury retail. Founded as a “one man show” in 2013, we've since evolved into a youthful yet capable operation whose partnerships to date include Wandler, Bernadette, Halpern, KASSL Editions, Gauge81, Lisa Yang and Conner Ives – thoroughly desirable brands whose cachet is derived from a certain singularity of vision.

With showrooms in Paris, London and Antwerp, Parrot has a strong and established network of relationships with online players, department stores and multi-brand boutiques. Together we are committed to fostering impressive and sustainable distribution strategies that benefit supplier and retailer.

Because we are only as good as the company – or the companies – we keep, Parrot exists to champion and cultivate brands and designers with a distinct point of view. As crowded as the modern marketplace sometimes feel, Parrot understands that, ultimately perspective is everything.
