Palm Angels is an italian brand that draws inspiration from rugged grace Southern Californian skate culture, giving a refreshing new take on American famous iconography into contemporary menswear. to bring a sense of dynamism to the wardrobe.
Founder and designer Francesco Ragazzi, who is also art director at Moncler, began photographing the skateboarders of Venice Beach during one of his many trips to Los Angeles: the collected images would become Palm Angels, one of the definitive photography books on the LA skateboarding scene and the inspiration for Ragazzi’s latest project, a collection West Coast-inspired clothing line that mixes slightly preppy and ’70s inflected blazers, tees, Italian-made biker jackets with ripped jeans, metallic print graphic tees and embroidered trousers.
Palm Angels is set to become a new staple of fashion luxury, going global in a multitude of high-end stores such as Colette, Selfridges and Antonia Milano.
