“I am really thrilled about the Seoul opening and proud of this new brand milestone that inaugurates our partnership with Forward Global Fashion,” said Francesco Ragazzi, Palm Angels founder and creative director.

“The store tells the whole Palm Angels story as it perfectly embodies the emotions, inspirations and values of the brand.”

Founded in 2015, Palm Angels was acquired by UK-based luxury retailer Farfetch, who took a majority stake in the label via New Guards Group, in 2021.

In Asia, Palm Angels has stores in Wuhan, Beijing, Bangkok, Hong Kong, respectively.
