Francesco Ragazzi’s Palm Angels brand is the byproduct of the designer’s Italian heritage and LA’s glamorous and sunny culture. The label is luxury streetwear at its coolest and the house’s biggest fans are made up of the who’s who in today’s mainstream rap scene. The likes of Playboi Carti, Gunna, Future, 21 Savage and more are fans of the brand and are frequently spotted wearing the label’s signature tracksuits.

2020 was mostly Ragazzi keeping a steady pace with his output of Palm Angels goods. In fact, the brand’s FW20 collection was quite the standout with its experimental blend of U.S. Western influences and Los Angeles skate culture. The collection delivered an array of modernized Western garb — oversized plaid shirts, logo printed ponchos and fringed cowboy jackets were mixed in with track trousers, embroidered hoodies and studded jeans. Footwear was also a focal point for the year as Palm Angels’ in-house selections were getting just as much recognition as the mainstream sneaker brands. Lastly, talks of an Inter Milan and Palm Angels collaboration was teased earlier in the year and could be making its debut anytime soon.
