Francesco Ragazzi is the founder and designer of Italian streetwear brand Palm Angels.
Ragazzi cut his teeth at Moncler, eventually becoming its creative director.
In January 2015, he teamed up with New Guards Group, whose portfolio includes Off-White and Heron Preston , to birth Palm Angels. Inspired by a coffee table book on LA skate culture, shot by Ragazzi, the label offers skater-inflected style with a Milanese touch, fusing bold logos and grunge culture with high-quality Italian production.
Palm Angels is New Guards Group’s second largest and fastest-growing brand. It is sold by Ssense, Farfetch, Net-a-Porter and Nordstrom, and has inked collaborations with Missoni, Moncler, Vilebrequin, Under Armor.
