Vilebrequin x Palm Angels Capsule Collection Seeks Disruption in Design

In Partnership with Vilebrequin

The Vilebrequin x Palm Angels Capsule Collection is the result of combining the best of two worlds. That is the infamous disruptive energy of Francesco Ragazzi’s ‘Palm Angels’ and the Saint-Tropez class and allure of Vilebrequin swimwear. Here, the pair speak to the trend of “luxury streetwear,” because although Palm Angels and Vilebrequin have championed two different lanes, here, they unite as one to disrupt design. Staple styles remain for each brand, as do logo motifs, and bold prints. Let’s explore. 85124265

Francesco Ragazzi is the mastermind behind Palm Angels. Having spent a number of years at luxury lifestyle label Moncler, the designer and photographer took his knowledge base and founded his own label in 2015. While based in Milan, Palm Angels are far from a figure of Italian traditions. Making a name for itself with a strong influence of the American streetwear sub-culture. Here Ragazzi finds inspiration in a disruptive use of bold colours, prints, and creative storytelling.

Heavily influenced by the 90s Los Angeles surf sub-culture that seemingly has its roots in all aspects of fashion today. Palm Angels adds noticeable luxurious aspects that elevate the brand far above the basic streetwear notions of simple logo t-shirts and baseball caps. The latest Vilebrequin x Palm Angels capsule collection is no different. Harnessing Vilebrequins 50-years of experience, 32-step manufacturing process, and commitment to craft to hone in on the luxury streetwear aesthetic.

You’ll often find Palm Angels being worn by the likes of Playboi Carti, James Harden, Jordan Clarkson and ASAP Rocky. And the same can be said for Vilebrequin who’s aesthetic is synonymous with stylish artists such as Young Thug – who recently wore a pair on his famous NPR Tiny Desk concert. Luxury streetwear is an aesthetic reinforced by the artist and sports stars who wear it, and the Vilebrequin x Palm Angels capsule collection is as suited to a beach cafe on the waters of Monaco, as it is on the streets of Rodeo drive in LA. We’ve selected a few standout styles from the collection for your viewing pleasure.
