Palm Angels Spring/Summer 21 Zine
Add spice and flare to your coffee table this Spring. Collaborating exclusively with Rizzoli, Francesco Ragazzi unveils his SS21 collection for Palm Angels with a limited-edition book zine. The zine invites some of today’s most experimental image-makers to be part of the project, with David Sims, Rosie Marks, Lea Colombo, Enzo Ragazzini, Friedrich Kunath, Javier Jaén, Javier Calleja and Thrush Holmes all contributing to the book. Themes of escapism and fantasy weave themselves throughout the zine and manifest in the collection itself. Ragazzi playfully creates his own fantastical multiverse for the new collection resulting in a bookzine that can be treasured, and placed on a bookshelf forever; a tactile object that serves as a reminder and time capsule of what has been lost with the pandemic. Whilst bringing home the message that the future always brings hope and no matter what we must continue to always dream.
From Misty’s iconic shorts to Ash Ketchum’s trademark blue-themed outfits, the past 25 years has taught us that the go-to fashion for any Pokémon trainer worth their weight in Poké Balls is denim. To celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary, Pokémon has teamed up with Levi’s for a very special capsule collection that celebrates the first generation of the phenomenon. Whether it’s a sleepy Pikachu on a Levi’s logo tee, a soft pink Jigglypuff beanie, or Ash and Misty themselves on a range of hoodies, there’s something for every Pokémon fan. Levi’s has even taken it back to the decade when it all began, with the collection including a 90s style Vintage Fit Trucker Jacket and 551®Z Authentic Straight jean in stonewash indigo, both featuring oversized embroidered Pikachu and lightning bolt patches for the Electric-type Pokémon. If you want to be the very best, like no-one ever was, then this collection is for you. Catch ‘em all while you can!.
Thanks to the revolutionary stylings of godly icons Britney, Paris and JLO in the early 2000’s, Ms Juicy Couture ruled the Hollywood streets. She was, like, everywhere! You couldn’t even step into your local Starbucks without a Swarovski embellished derrière hitting you in the face. It was outrageous. But then the world went dark and people started wearing jeans! Ew. But fear not. She’s flipped open her cell, heard our cries and is back with modern sass for your ass. The iconic velour is reloaded and refreshed with fluid style prints and we welcome the introduction of the ‘ultra-velour’ whose serving a sculpted silhouette fit for all body sizes. The handbags are plusher and the diamantes shine brighter. The OG of leisurewear has reclaimed her throne so get your dose of nostalgia immediately. That’s hot.
If there’s one tech accessory we’ve found ourselves using considerably more over the past 12 months, it’s headphones. Whether it’s Zoom meetings, music and podcast playback during your Government-mandated daily walk, or motivation for your inhome workout sessions, your headphones have been with you through thick and thin. If you’re looking for a reliable, stylish and affordable pair of in-ears to get your Spring off to a flying start, then the new Beats Flex range is perfect.

This is all powered by the Apple W1 chip for seamless connectivity and is compatible with both Apple and Android devices. With an uncompromising sound experience, they’re simply unbeatable on value for money.
