Celebrating American Culture with a different perspective. Moncler art director Francesco Ragazzi, initially started his Palm Angels project in the form of a much buzzed-about coffee table book, featuring black-and-white photography of the LA skateboarding scene, shot by Ragazzi himself. The book published by Rizzoli in 2014 – which featured a foreword written by Pharrell Williams – resulted in a debut ready-to-wear collection for fall/winter 2015. His designs can best be described as an assortment of upscale, skate-inspired apparel and accessories, the result of what Ragazzi says happens when he mixes his Italian sartorial background with the laid back vibes he admires so much in skaters around LA.
In the new season, the brand has released a capsule collection 8 Moncler Palm Angels line, collection n°8 of the Moncler Genius project. A tribute to the metal sculptures of Jeff Koons and a strong reference to the punk movement of the ’80s: these are the two essential themes of the collaboration.
