Palmiers du Mal: Outside of Time and Place

By Eliza Jordan

February 8, 2016

A modern, global idea of luxury is the backbone of Palmiers du Mal—a company inspired by a life of travel, literature, philosophy, and sensuality. The young label got its start just last year in New York City, and has since managed to bridge the gap between various cultures for the past two rounds of New York Fashion Week: Men’s. This year, the winter 2016 show was staged on a minimal set on Platform 1 at Skylight Clarkson, and offered a collection full of universal shapes and materials from the brand’s go-to Italian artisans.

Aiming to capture the enigmatic zeitgeist, paradigmatic romance, and vanishing spirit of a flaneur, Palmiers du Mal presented looks to reinstate a progressive utopia of villa life. Quilted red leather loafers were mixed in with lush turtleneck cashmere sweaters, casual lounge pants, denim-on-denim duos, and floral, kimono-like, and multi-print shirts and tie-close sweaters. There was an underlying message of hedonism throughout the line’s many freedoms in proportion and pattern, and the urban aesthetic continuously resonated, inside or outside of time or place.
