What happens when Palm Angels and Moncler get together on a collab? They give birth to the puffy outfit of your dreams—which looks as if it were inspired by The Purple People Eater (but make it fashion) and David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity’.
Perfect for these chilly months in the Southern Hemi, the purple, silver and black jacket/pants combo will keep you as snug as a bug in a rug, whilst also looking as cool as a cucumber in a… really cold drink! We couldn’t think of anyone better to take the collab for a spin on than Makhosi Mpofu, a cool Capricorn cutie from Canberra (who now calls Sydney home).
Get to know Makhosi better below then have a looksie at the results of our Moncler Palm Angels playdate in Sydney in the gallery above. And remember: stay puffy, friends!
Name: Makhosi Mpofu

Where are you from originally, and where do you live now?
I grew up in Canberra, but moved to Sydney in January.
How do you think your upbringing helped to shape your worldview?
I’m really grateful for my upbringing. Although I grew up in quite difficult circumstances I feel that the way my mother chose to raise and educate me has formed me into a well-rounded person.
Where would you take someone visiting your hometown for the first time?
Honestly, to the art gallery—the architecture is beautiful and the collection is on par with most galleries around the world. Also, the view of the city from the lakeside shows what I appreciate the most about Canberra—being a planned city, it has a beauty not many other cities have.

I make music quite often and work on video art whenever I get the chance.
Coolest thing you’ve learned recently?
That antimatter has already been created in a lab in the form of

‘Junt’. I use it as a replacement for almost any noun.
What is your motto?
If you’re not already on a watch list, get on one.
