Milan based luxury streetwear brand Palm Angels has showcased its Autumn/Winter 2020 collection at New York Fashion Week. For the new Palm Angels AW20 collection.Francesco Ragazzi goes West: rocky mountains, canyons, glaring sun, desert lands, an overlapping of different cultures. He rediscovers the pleasure of being immersed in nature and culture for real, savoring the colors, the textures and even the dust; marvelling in front of A Thing Called Sunset. The frenzy of the city and the performing efficiency of technical clothing are far from here.
Craft comes to the fore, and with that the warmth of touch, the organic feeling of wearing pieces that have been lovingly made with the hands. It’s folk, in other words, à la Palm Angels, which means a bit off. Artful stains are dripped over shearling jackets; fringes dance on dresses made with striped shirting cottons; Western jewelry turns into decorative prints; pajamas replace suits and plaids replace coats, and all of it is grounded on chunky skater shoes. It’s all very familiar, but never obviously so. See some of the images from Palm Angels aw20 collection below.
