The latest highly anticipated and experimental installment of the Genius project is the Moncler x Palm Angels collaboration. This fashion-forward endeavor comes from the Italian outerwear company's pledge to showcase "10 of the most cutting edge designers around the world." The Palm Angels partnership marks the eighth collection, headed by Francesco Ragazzi.
The inspiration behind the Moncler x Palm Angels drop is quite interesting as it addresses topics beyond the scope of pure materiality. The central slogan of the capsule is said to be 'Mind Control' and the ethereal, even futurist, qualities of the topic are communicated through fabric and color juxtapositions, as well as experimental silhouette tailoring. Presented in the essence of an art gallery, the capsule is said to communicate "abrasive urban attitude."
