RON DORFF Arrives in KAPOK Hong Kong Select Store


KAPOK, one of the very few select store in Hong Kong brought the French-Swedish urban sportswear RON DROFF brand behind the claim DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD that has taken Paris by storm with clients such as Alexander Skarsgård, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marc Jacobs and Scarlett Johansson, now arrives in Hong Kong. The store carries some the brand’s bestsellers including the iconic sweatshirts, printed Tshirts, swimwear, underwear and the bodycare line SKIN DISCIPLINE.


 Essential pieces with impeccable fit. An uncompromising eye for fabrics and construction. Season after season, the sportswear brand RON DORFF proves that its motto is also its philosophy: DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD. Born out of the partnership of Jérôme Touron, a Frenchman, and Claus Lindorff, a Swede, RON DORFF a simple elision of their two last names is the logical outcome of their combined origins. Aligning classic Parisian taste with Swedish functionality, RON DORFF is a new idea of sportswear: smart, modern and sharp. Neither precious nor overly casual, RON DORFF concerns itself with beyond-basics: perfect pieces with athletic heritage that perform flawlessly at the gym and are chic to be worn on the street as well.


With the creation of simple, essential classics as a starting point, RON DORFF offers its must haves year after year, augmenting its core collection with new items and exclusive limited editions. In the same spirit of continuity, the brand rejects the traditional rules of seasonality by offering the totality of its staples, even bathing suits, throughout the year. Ostentatious logos are rejected: RON DORFF’s pieces are signed only by the most discrete of details, a pair of black lacquered eyelets, a reflection of the two O’s in the brand’s name that allows for the subtlest glimpse of skin.


After releasing a series of essentials in black, heather grey and white including tennis, exerciser and swim shorts, a classic swim trunk, iconic t-shirts with the maxim DISCIPLINE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD, today RON DORFF has evolved its range to include wide variety of new pieces and colors. The collection now offers sweatshirts (both classic crew and hooded), jogging shorts and jogging trousers, a wide variety of swimwear, a full no-logo underwear line and various accessories inspired by world of professional sports. RON DORFF has also begun to offer exclusive limited editions such as the ‘Serious Sportswear‘ line (Marathon Man, Working Man, Roller Man), sold exclusively at the RON DORFF store, on rondorff.com and at Colette.


RON DORFF constantly collaborates with other designers and together offer exclusive limited editions such as the ‘Innocent Summer Pleasures’ series in collaboration with developed in collaboration with the Swedish graphic artist Johan Oxe and the ûber-light but practical city bike VELO LOVE developed together with Lorenzo Martone of MARTONE CYCLING COMPANY OF NY. RON DORFF has expanded its foundation in simplicity and functionality beyond sportswear with the launch of SKIN DISCIPLINE, a line of bodycare products for him and for her, 100% made in Sweden. Developed in partnership with Sweden’s most respected skincare brand,  FACE Stockholm, this collection composed of a shower gel, a body scrub, a tonifying shampoo and a Swedish Massage Oil gets results through simplicity and purity. The list of ingredients is brief, free of parabens and mineral oils, enriched by active botanicals harvested north of the Arctic Circle. The series also include an exclusive, scented Swedish Massage candle made in Grasse, France.


RON DORFF has recently extended its world to include women, with a parallel collection called HIS for HER. The result of countless requests by female fans for RON DORFF classics specially cut to fit their form, this is a logical extension, faithful to the RON DORFF philosophy of smart, functional, minimal, yet sensual pieces. For an active woman who eschews fluff, flash and bling.
