Heritage labels often find themselves in a quandary. While their loyal customer base loves what made them who they are, this limits their ability to expand to new demographics and experiment with new styles. The keyword in that sentence: often. Not always.
Moncler, despite its far-reaching skiing roots that lend the brand to performance outerwear, has had no trouble in finding avenues to expand its output. Lately, the 8 Moncler Palm Angels collection has been concrete proof.
Linking up with Francesco Ragazzi’s Palm Angels is a sure sign of Moncler’s desire and ability to reach an audience more in tune with luxury streetwear than the mountains.
Inspired by the hedonistic spirit of ‘90s Miami, the latest 8 Moncler Palm Angels collection suggests that even in winter, summer is still the overarching Palm mood. The collection’s aesthetic is perfectly channeled through the Quil Lemons-shot campaign that stars Naomi Campbell.
Continuing Francesco Ragazzi’s enduring idolization of American culture at Palm Angels, the 8 Moncler Palm Angels collection is elegantly framed by Miami’s famous shores. Sportswear meets outspoken luxury in pieces like the gold Keon Jacket, shimmering track pants, and quilted tote bags.
