Palm Angels

FounderFrancesco Ragazzi

Former Moncler artistic director Francesco Ragazzi didn’t initially set out to create a label in Palm Angels. At first, the project took the form of just a much-buzzed about coffee table book featuring black-and-white photography of the Los Angeles skateboard scene. That laid-back Los Angeles vibe, however, inspired Ragazzi to launch his own line, mixing his Italian sartorial background with the same spirit he captured in his skate photographs around the city. It all adds up to a heavily romanticized version of late ‘90s West Coast nostalgia, but with the upscale glamour and touch that only Ragazzi could add to the line. Featured on Marcelo Burlon’s distribution and production company New Guards Group alongside Off-White, Heron Preston, Unravel Project, Palm Angels has access to some of the scenes most influential figures, which has buoyed its growth, and earned co-signs from A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, and Joe Jonas. Where is Palm Angels available to buy? Palm Angels has its own online store, but it’s also stocked in 210 stores worldwide, including luxury retailers like Colette, Barney’s, and Saks Fifth Avenue among many others. Is there a Palm Angels women’s line? Yes, Palm Angels has a full collection of womenswear, including pieces like tracksuits, bodysuits, cropped hoodies, dresses, sneakers, boots, and bags.
