Vault by Vans joins forces with Palm Angels Founder and Creative Director, Francesco Ragazzi to pay homage to skate culture. The three-piece capsule is a representation of a design approach that celebrates freedom and individuality all grounded in skate culture. The Vault by Vans x Palm Angels collaboration will launch on September 27 exclusively via Palm Angels followed by a global release for select Vault by Vans retailers on October 1.
Palm Angels fosters a liberated way of being, free from constructs, glorifying the uniqueness of individuals and a personal approach to life, since its beginning. The skateboarding scene has always been a primary reference for the brand, with roots grounded in images shot by Francesco Ragazzi and published in 2014, in Venice beach in Los Angeles.
“Palm Angels started with a photography book and Vans was already there. I took a picture of a guy skating in Venice beach, wearing the most vintage Vans Sk8-Hi I had ever seen and since then, the idea of Palm Angels collaborating with Vans has always been in my mind. It’s now finally reality. With this collection I wanted to recreate exactly that same image: few models with a vintage feeling and a contemporary take“, says Francesco Ragazzi, founder and Creative Director of Palm Angels.
