Palm Angels’ Francesco Ragazzi is reinterpreting (well, more like repainting and spraying) some of Moncler’s boutiques for the release of his “art breaking” 8 Moncler Palm Angels collection, dropping tomorrow, June 6.
Falling as part of this year’s Moncler Genius project, Ragazzi debuted his “art breaking” theme at the Moncler Genius event in Milan last February, revealing his new collection in an impeccable gallery-styled room and then covering some of the works with paint.
Moncler’s Milan, London, and New York boutiques get treated to Ragazzi’s subversive paint treatment, reflecting the designer and his brand, Palm Angels’, love of streetwear aesthetics and urban codes.
“I started with the idea of a vandalized art gallery,” explains Ragazzi. “The purity of the lines and form that are in a second moment clashed with a protest. Moncler for me is about the simplicity of a product that comes to life in many forms. I wanted to have the form broken.”
Follow Moncler on Instagram to see Ragazzi do his thing and for all things happening surrounding the fire collection.
The 8 Moncler Palm Angels collection releases June 6 at moncler.com, at Moncler boutiques, and in selective wholesale networks worldwide. View the collection here.
