thedrop@Barneys brought in all walks of streetwear life. From casual shoppers, to fans trying to cop exclusive drops, to many designers, were all in attendance creating a social hub that blurred the lines of streetwear culture and the high-end retail marketplace into one. We partnered up with Barneys for the two-day shopping event that saw the release of 30 exclusive capsule collections from labels like OFF-WHITE, 424, FEAR OF GOD, and more.

Francesco Ragazzi of Palm Angels was one of the many designers in attendance. He's also an art director for Moncler, and initially started out as a photographer. Before it became one of the most popular streetwear lines today, Palm Angels was originally a photography project in the form of a much buzzed-about coffee table book, featuring black-and-white photos of the LA skateboarding scene, shot by Ragazzi himself. The book was published by Rizzoli in 2014, which featured a foreword written by Pharrell Williams. However, the book snowballed into a debut ready-to-wear collection for Fall/Winter 2015.

His designs can best be described as assortment of upscale, skate-inspired apparel and accessories influenced by Italian fashion and the LA skate scene. Today, Palm Angels is available for purchase in 210 stores worldwide, including top luxury retailers such as Colette, Maxfield, The Webster Miami, Selfridges, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harvey Nichols London and now Barneys NY.

At thedrop@Barneys, Ragazzi gave all fans in attendance to their very own Palm Angels tee by creating a print station within the store. Also, during the event, Highsnobiety’s Jeff Carvalho and Barneys’ Jackie Kim sat down with the designer to talk tracksuits, Milan streetwear scene, and more. Watch the full interview above.
