The Morris Park Collection is a continuation of The Art of Shaving’s long-standing relationship with New York, which have been intertwined since the first Art of Shaving stores flourished on the city’s concrete streets in 1996. Taking its influence from the classic cars that first raced at Morris Park in Bronx, New York during the early twentieth century, the Morris Park Collection mirrors their vivid colors, fine craftsmanship and sporty, yet elegant, look.
Similar to the previous Chelsea and Lexington Collections, the Morris Park Collection extends The Art of Shaving’s Heritage Collection series. Each Heritage Collection echoes the voice and character of New York’s most dynamic neighborhoods, landmarks and streets. To elevate one’s daily shaving ritual, pair the Morris Park Collection razors with The Art of Shaving’s pre-shave, shaving and after-shave products to experience a unique and individual take on the 4 Elements of The Perfect Shave.
