Designers Angela Missoni and Francessco Ragazzi joined forces to create PALM ANGELS X MISSONI Capsule Collection that fuses two brands’ codes and celebrates Italian craftsmanship. The collection brings urban and relaxed looks. Fashion photographer David Sims captured the lookbook.
I have been drawn to Francesco’s work with Palm Angels from the very beginning, for its unique energy. My parents founded Missoni on an open mindset: a pioneering spirit which I brought forward through all the collaborations I developed over the years. I am particularly proud of how fresh and spontaneous the dialogue with Palm Angels came out – Angela Missoni
Missoni is an authentic landmark of Italian creation and artisanal know-how. With this collaboration we wanted to offer a different take, my own take actually, on the Missoni heritage. A fusion of both DNAs, with an urban, relaxed feel – Francesco Ragazzi
“By twisting the very Missoni idea of the put together – a freewheeling mix of this and that, of patterns and lengths, of colors, volumes and shapes – Missoni and Palm Angels are put together in a tropical-flavored clash, smudging spray paint and sharp, boxy tailoring all around, creating an altogether new entity in which echoes of both vocabularies are perceived. The approach is at once respectful and irreverent, fueled by a fast and furious foray into the Missoni archives that prompted a pillaging of trims, oval-shaped logos that eventually turned into shoulder bags, and blown up patterns and jacquards.” – from MISSONI
