Brand: RON DORFF Paris-Stockholm

Tell us about the brand & the concept....

RON DORFF is a French-Swedish brand that redefines the codes of men’s sportswear, combining Scandinavian functionalism with a Parisian twist. Classic. Functional. Timeless.

Where did the name come from?

It’s the combination of our two names: TouRON and LinDORFF. 
‘Paris-Stockholm’ refers to our two home cities.

Where did the inspiration come from?

From Scandinavian design and functionalism as well as Paris. It’s a balance between our French and Swedish origins. But the inspiration also comes from iconic sportsmen like Björn Borg, Mark Spitz and Arthur Ashe, as well as iconic image makers like Hockney, Muybridge or Helmut Newton.

What's your favourite product from the collection and why?

Our DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD sweatshirt in grey melange. Can be worn at the gym, at home, outside, even at work with a white shirt. Another favourite is the SKÄRGÅRD grooming line, 100% made in Sweden with an original, fresh fragrance inspired by the bracing winds of the Swedish archipelago.
