Palm Angels is a luxury streetwear brand, specialized in the production of clothing and accessories. The Palm Angels men’s clothing collection is the spokesperson of a refined and alternative urban aesthetic: unisex jumpsuits and sweatshirts with boxy and over-sized fit are now the real trademarks. There are also t-shirts and shirts with irreverent prints and graphics that reflect the Californian iconography, leather jackets with vintage charm, tailored coats and knitwear with a preppy 70’s taste. As for men’s accessories, Palm Angels produces branded hats, belts and a wide range of shoes such as sneakers, leather boots and loafers. The collection of women’s clothing follows the same common thread: colorful t-shirts and jumpsuits, bomber jackets and oversized padded jackets, structured blazers, dresses with sporty charm, are representative of a style that mixes the underground with the refinement of Italian tailoring. The wardrobe is complete with accessories such as leather bags, boots, sneakers and belts.
Palm Angels stands out for its unique style: an aesthetic that mixes and combines in a completely irreverent way the Italian tailoring silhouettes with the urban charm typical of the skater culture that invades the streets of Venice Beach. The brand perfectly embodies the canons of the Californian lifestyle, revisited but in an Italian key, where the streetwear element becomes formal, refined and luxurious. Strong is the link between style, attitude and quality, which translates into Made in Italy and avant-garde textile experimentation, introducing into the collections completely eco-sustainable and technical materials. An extremely contemporary brand, which looks to the future and is inspired by the new generations, surrounded by a relaxed attitude and no filters.
Francesco Ragazzi, photographer and designer with an important past at Moncler, founded the brand in Los Angeles in 2015. Initially it was conceived as a photographic project: a book entitled "Palm Angels", which celebrated the different Californian cultures, from the world of skate to urban-style, up to dealing with issues such as the legalization of marijuana. The main intent of these images was to merge American cultures and currents of thought with Italian ideologies, recreating a reality without filters. A universe where opposites are fuse together, America and Italy, underground and mainstream: from this philosophy comes the first collection of Palm Angels, a brand made of stories and real people. Produced and distributed by New Guards Gruoup, the brand has upset the canons of the streetwear world: with its underground luxurious style has managed to secure collaborations with major brands such as Moncler, Missoni, Tod’s, Vans and Under Armour.
