8 MONCLER PALM ANGELS

FRANCESCO RAGAZZI

An Art Director trained in fashion communication and a photographer with a Master’s degree earned at New York’s School of Visual arts, Milan-born Francesco Ragazzi started Palm Angels in 2011 as a photographic documentation of LA’s skater culture.

The endeavor evolved into a book, published by Rizzoli in 2014, and subsequently into Palm Angels clothing in 2015.

The photographic gaze onto a peculiar and long-lasting subculture is the same Ragazzi applies to Moncler Palm Angels collection. Ragazzi’s aim is to appropriate key elements, transmogrifying them to give a new meaning while keeping the authenticity and telling a story. His own story.

JIM

A wealth of details tells a story of master craftsmanship: this is the distinctive trait of this bomber jacket from the 8 Moncler Palm Angels line, collection n°8 of the Moncler Genius project. Nylon technique is the perfect fabric to introduce contrast details, like the brand’s leather trimmed logo and Palm Angels elements, to leave nothing to chance. The “Mind Control” lettering on the back reflects the collection’s new motto.

BILLY

The 8 Moncler Palm Angels line, collection n°8 of the Moncler Genius project is full of references. This down quilted nylon laqué long jacket is proof, characterized by the material contrasts of the satin yoke and the nylon purple lining, a recurring theme of the outerwear collection. Details like safety pins, patches and oversized Palm Angels graffiti lettering on top of a neoprene Moncler macro-logo make this piece unique.

EXEN

An exclusive online colorway of the Exen, a down quilted mirror metallic nylon vest. A tribute to the metal sculptures of Jeff Koons combined with a strong reference to the punk movement of the ’80s, essential themes of the 8 Moncler Palm Angels line, collection n°8 of the Moncler Genius project. The leather trimmed Moncler macro-logo with metal studs featured on the back nods to the counterculture, delivering uncompromising style.

CARDIGAN

The wealth of the details tells a story of master craftsmanship: this is the distinctive trait of this long sleeve zip-front track jacket from the 8 Moncler Palm Angels line, collection n°8 of the Moncler Genius project. The technical fabric is the perfect base to introduce contrast details, like the brand’s leather trimmed logo with added Palm Angels lettering, to leave nothing to chance. The “Mind Control” lettering on the back reflects the collection’s new motto.

“I started with the idea of a vandalized art gallery. The purity of 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 that form broken.”
