About the Brand
Edie Parker is a modern accessories label with an inherent sense of luxury, irreverence and wit. The brand evolved out of Founder and Creative Director Brett Heyman’s love of mid-century style. She is inspired by the post-war period of design innovation in America; both by the unexpected use of materials and the personal, artisanal way the product is manufactured.
Since the brand’s inception, Edie Parker has produced accessories that make a statement. Conceived as a line of clutches, the brand now offers bags in a range of sizes, materials and fabrications. They maintain a sense of optimism, saturation and luminosity. Other categories include jewelry and a growing home collection. Launched in 2012, the Edie Parker bespoke program allows customers to personalize their bags and home items, selecting a shape, color, font and other details.
The line is carried in over 100 outlets worldwide including Moda Operandi, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.
About the Founder
Brett Heyman resides in New York City with her husband and three children. The brand is named after her daughter Edie Parker Heyman. Prior to the brand’s debut, she served as the Director of Public Relations at Gucci.
Brett is a decent folk guitarist and finds every excuse to go antiquing. She is a collector of vintage bags, vintage jewelry, vintage furniture and compliments. She began treasure hunting for clutches while growing up in LA and has amassed more then 100 evening bags from the 1950’s and 1960’s. When she could no longer find bags from this era at vintage or second-hand shops, Brett began researching the original fabrication techniques and long lost designers. When Brett found there was no manufacturer left from that time, she decided to remake the items she collected for a new generation.
