Palm Angels FW20 Celebrates the West That Never Was

A no-holds-barred tribute to stylized Westernwear.

Palm Angels cares little for subtlety, often transforming skate-inspired looks into head-turning statements. Fall/Winter 2020 is no different, using a single motif — this time, all-encompassing Americana — as the driving force for an expansive array of co-ed looks.

A love for Western garments and imagined gunslingers inspired Francesco Ragazzi’s mood for FW20; the creative director’s spin on Clint Eastwood’s poncho from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is a clear reference point, updated with color-blocking and Palm Angels branding, then offset with chain-linked desert boots provided by Clarks, who also provided collaborative Wallabee shoes.

Elsewhere, fringed suits, western shirts and jackets emblazoned with photographs of scenic mountain ranges reinforce the wistful mood, while sweaters printed with illustrative cacti and bald eagles present a more playful ode to the American West. Graphic T-shirts, checkerboard patterns, paint splatters and skate sneakers demonstrate Palm Angels’ adeptness at blending the West of yore with the Californian cool of today, organically fusing two idealized conceits.

Check out Palm Angels’ New York Fashion Week presentation above, and then relive KEENKEE’s presentation at the menswear event.

Most recently, Palm Angels launched a series of playful accessories, including track pant keychains and logo-emblazoned AirPod cases.
