In 2022, Francesco Ragazzi, founder and Creative director of Palm Angels, crafted a special piece to commemorate Moncler‘s 70 glorious years – the Palm Angels Moncler Maya jacket. This creation wasn’t just a garment; it was an experience, a dazzling fusion of innovative design, profound identity, and a glimpse into tomorrow.
The jacket, from the front to the back and down the sleeves, is intricately adorned with thin fiber optic strands. They lie dormant or spring to life at the wearer’s whim, powered by a discreetly placed battery. When awakened, the jacket transforms into a spectacle of light, casting awe and admiration in its wake.
The jacket’s distinct aura and its capacity to cut through darkness with awe has fueled its immense popularity. Its enchantment has sparked a collecting frenzy, elevating this co-branded masterpiece to cult status within months.
As the seasons turned and the winds of fashion swirled, the iconic jacket made its return in the Palm Angels Fall/Winter 2023 collection. This time, it wasn’t just the iconic ivory that fans could adorn but also striking shades of light red and blue. Even in their slumber, these hues possessed a distinct charm, but once ignited, they unveiled a spectacle of intense whites, blues, and reds.
Every jacket is adorned with a white felt patch showcasing the iconic black palm tree, standing sentinel above the elegant Moncler lettering, and is secured with a full-length zipper.
The Palm Angels Maya Moncler jacket can be found at select Palm Angels boutiques across the globe and is also available for purchase on palmangels.com.
