Palm Angels x MATE
MATE teams up with the iconic West Coast-inspired streetwear brand
Our collaboration with the legendary Palm Angels streetwear brand launches at the end of July 2021. The collaboration features a soon-to-be iconic Palm Angels x MATE e-bike and an exclusive clothing capsule collection.
The Palm Angels aesthetic is inspired by the culture and laidback vibes of the Los Angeles skate scene. In the late '90s, the former Moncler artistic director Francesco Ragazzi began photographing and documenting the Los Angeles skate scene with no intention of creating anything but an intriguing coffee table book. However, inspired by the imagery and the reaction his photographs had provoked, he decided to create a clothing brand that mixed his Italian sartorial experience with the rich aesthetic of the nostalgia-drenched imagery he had captured on the streets of LA.
Today, Palm Angels are one of the most iconic brands in luxury streetwear. Their intriguing backstory and open, liberal mindset to street culture resonates strongly with an engaged and loyal audience. We strive for authenticity with every collaboration we launch at MATE, and we believe the partnership we formed with Palm Angels felt natural because we share similar values and are both unapologetic in our approach.
The Palm Angels x MATE X colourway is a reflective silver steel with black accents. The key design features that distinguish the collaboration are the iconic Palm Angels script placed on one side of the frame with the distinct MATE lettering mirrored on the other. To serenade the collaboration a "PM" monogram that combines the initials of both brands features on the front of the frame. A final playful touch is the addition of black leather fringes on the handles placed to catch the wind as you ride.
The exclusive clothing capsule that completes the collaboration features a limited-edition sweatshirt, t-shirt and canvas vest. Each feature the Palm Angels patch stitched over a MATE woven signature
