Italian point of view and American manufacture are found for the SS2018 in the capsule collection Palm Angels x Sundek. Palm Angels, in fact, announces the collaboration with Sundek, swimwear brand born in 1958 in San Francisco. The famous one with the rainbow so to speak!
“I like to reinterpret iconic products giving it a new face and Sundek was part of the imagery created for Spring-Summer 2018″ says Francesco Ragazzi, Palm Angels creative director and deus-ex-machina.
From the iconography of the American surf to which his collection was inspired, the four collaboration models are born, which reinvent the style of the historical technical fabric shorts, transforming them and adapting them in pure Palm Angels style. In fact, I remember that Francesco Ragazzi started Palm Angels in 2011 as a photographic research on the skater culture of Los Angeles. Project that evolved into a book published by Rizzoli in 2014, and then into a clothing line in 2015.
The capsule collection Palm Angels x Sundek is available online on the website Palm Angels.
