After a first collaboration last year, Palace and CP Company are back at the end of the year for a Holiday 2023 Collection .
If the two big names in sportswear - one Italian, the other British - merge wonderfully, Palace has this time adopted the codes of the equipment manufacturer. Certain iconic cuts and innovative materials then give rise to “a collection that combines technical know-how with an experimental aesthetic, as well as meticulous attention to detail,” explains the label specializing in skateboarding.
At the heart of this collection, the Explorer jacket , CP's signature, is renewed in a finer uncoated nylon. Combined with the direct downward injection process, also called DD (direct down), an ultra-nuanced light-dark gradient is then created.
The Goggle Jacket will also be there. Made from a monofilament nylon called Kan-D, this transparent and shiny jacket features the "PALACE COMPANY" logo on the back, features flap pockets and is equipped with a removable and concealed face mask. A version lined in bright orange will also be available.
Fleece hoodie, Flatt Nylon cargo pants, short-sleeved t-shirt with pronounced logo and lambswool funnel neck sweater, these everyday essentials will also see the light of day.
Finally, fluffy scarves, beanies with glasses, caps with earflaps and glasses lenses, as well as convertible shoulder bags will complete this capsule collection.
To mark the release, Palace has launched a campaign highlighting the rich heritage of CP Company and the sumptuousness of Northern Italy. The film is directed by Michael J. Fox and Stuart Hammond and stars Lucien Clarke, Rory Milanes and Danny Brady, members of the Palace skate team, as well as artist Andrea Renzini.
