Palm Angels: the streetwear style inspired from by the skate community

Introduction to the brand

It is 2014 and Francesco Ragazzi, Milanese former Moncler artistic director, realized a photography collection that captured the Los Angeles skaters vibes and the book, with an introduction written by the well-know American musician Pharrel Williams, became an editorial success.One year later, Palm Angel was born: a ready to wear brand completely inspired by the American west coast skateboard scene but with an Italian point of view; In an interview Ragazzi said that he decided to call his brand like this because in Los Angeles people were skating under the pals and they look like angels. The first runway was in 2015 and it combines the seventies skate culture with preppy chic style, that was something that hadn’t really been done before.Elements that were usually only found in the high fashion world, for the first time met hoodies, backpacks leather jackets and sporty t-shirts. Photographs by Ragazzi were printed on t-shirts. Also palms, flames and marijuana leafs are often printed on the clothes and represent the streetwear style all around the world. Since then the aim of the brand has been to celebrate American culture from a different perspective.

Palm Angels sunglasses are characterized by geometrical shapes and the material used is mainly acetate with the iconic gothic Palm Angels logo on the temple.
