“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.
Francessco Ragazzi, founder of Palm Angels, and Angela Missoni, former creative director of Missoni have joined forces to create an unexpected, irreverent, first-class Italian collection.
“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” says Angela Missoni.
The collaboration should not be an entire shock either. Both staple Italian brands subvert the notion of being put together. Instead, they toy with mixing. For Palm Angels this means switching fabrics while at the same time never forsaking function. Elsewhere for Missoni, mixing finds a home with different patterns, colors, and lengths.
The collection is a melting pot in itself. It is metropolitan with safari undertones. From Missoni’s iconic chevron-patterned tracksuits to oversized sweatshirts that double as dresses, the collection is purposefully accidental.
Palm Angels x Missoni is surely a surprising treat that will be remembered, given Missoni’s recent departure from her role as Creative director in her family-run fashion house. Yet this collection displays what lies ahead for the heritage Italian house.
