8 MONCLER PALM ANGELS | MIAMI STATE OF MIND
Italian luxury and street culture collide in Miami for a 90s Americana inspired story.
The diverse and hedonistic spirit of 90s Miami is channeled by the latest 8 Moncler Palm Angels story, photographed by Philadelphia-born shooting star Quil Lemons and featuring supermodel, philanthropist and forever icon Naomi Campbell.
Francesco Ragazzi’s enduring idolatry of American culture plays out in a sport– inspired collection that’s elegantly framed by Miami’s sugary shores. Naomi Campbell models a louche approach to the sporting theme: the striking gold Keon jacket gains an almost indignant allure paired with gold track pants, a sun lounger, and her own defiant gaze.
The collaboration with Tod’s is highlighted throughout the shoot; the flame and intarsia Gommino loafers winking humorously from deckchairs and hot baseball courts, whilst the winter Gommino boots dangle from diving boards and seaward jetties. It’s a playful take on a collection that is perfectly summarized by the palm tree Moncler logo – even in winter, summer is always a mood.
TOD’S x 8 MONCLER PALM ANGELS
When two Tod’s iconic products (Men and Women) are reinterpreted by Palm Angels for Moncler Genius.
This project is part of Tod’s-FACTORY, a creative laboratory where established and emerging designers are invited to offer a new point of view on the Tod’s DNA. As part of Moncler Genius, Tod’s teams up with Palm Angels, choosing to collaborate with Francesco Ragazzi, the brand’s creative director.
The creative energy and roots in Palm Angels and its love for American Pop culture transform two timeless Tod’s icons for Moncler Genius, The Gommino and the W.G.
“Tod’s iconic design was my starting point when I began this project…We talk a lot about Made in Italy, but, on my opinion, it is never enough…Behind a brand like Tod’s there is the dedication, the research, the craftsmanship of a team of skilled people not only technically, but also humanly, that transfer in what they do all their passion », says Francesco Ragazzi. «
