Art director Francesco Ragazzi started Palm Angels in 2011 as a photographic documentation of LA's skate culture. As a fashion label that aims to bridge the gap between luxury and streetwear, Palm Angels stems from an Italian take on American culture and subcultures. Palm Angels is essentially a vision, merging an appreciation for sartorial codes and a joy for fabric with a proclivity for using clothing as identity tropes and cultural signifiers. The label has formed various partnerships with prominent brands including Nike
and Billionaire Boys Club
, to name a few. Ragazzi’s designs are also frequently favored by the likes of celebrities including Rihanna, ASAP Rocky, Gigi Hadid, Future and Lewis Hamilton.
