The new co-branded collection is made to impress and celebrate Italian creativity and craftsmanship

Luxury streetwear fashion house Palm Angels has collaborated with Missoni, the long-standing Italian label, to launch a new collection inspired by the duo’s unique design ethos, celebrating creativity and bringing a new narrative of top-notch Italian craftsmanship.

For the capsule collection, Palm Angels’ founder and creative director Francesco Ragazzi has worked closely with Angela Missoni to re-imagine the brand’s existing silhouettes and explore the patterns, colours, volumes and shapes of Missoni for inspirations. The playful approach to combine style codes of both houses results in a bold streetwear range, which features a lineup of avant-garde tropical-inspired pieces for men and woman—some revolve around spray prints, while others are delivered in sharp, boxy tailoring to reflect the DNA of both brands.

Highlights from the range include tracksuits and zip-up cardigans featuring Missoni patterns, hooded sweatshirts, oversized T-shirt dresses, trousers and skirts. Other items such as berets, sneakers, sandals and totes are also offered to showcase the designers’ knack for merging luxury fashion and the vitality of today’s style subcultures.

“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” says Francesco Ragazzi.

Angela Missoni added: “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."

The Palm Angels x Missoni collection will be available on Palm Angels and Missoni’s websites and stores, as well as selected retailers worldwide on June 30.
