Early last week, the people of Tokyo woke to find its city adorned with mysterious Palace x Polo Ralph Lauren posters. And with no other details other than suggesting a potential collaboration between the two iconic brands, the Palace co-founders took to BoF to disclose a few minor details. Revealing that the drop would occur “imminently”, we now know everything including a closer look at the pieces.
As fans gear up for one of the most exciting partnerships of the season, a video lookbook has been released – revealing bold streetwear mixed with brand heritage. Directed by Palace, the campaign features four skaters from the team: Chewy Cannon, Juan Saavedra, Lucien Clarke and Rory Milanes, sporting the new silhouettes. From silk shirts to classic knits and corduroy pants, the incoming collection boasts colour all while in keeping with the strong Ralph Lauren aesthetic and history.
Palace Skateboards has described the collaboration as “a dream come true”.
“Palace Ralph Lauren is a timeless collection that represents a love letter from a young London skateboard company to their favourite brand in the universe.”
All pieces will drop on the Palace online store and in New York and London on November 9, before seeing a later release in Japan and Korea on November 10. The collection is also said to be available from Polo Ralph Lauren stores in Tokyo, Seoul and Paris as well as the Ralph Lauren web store in Europe and the Ralph Lauren app in North America. Further still, the collection will also be up for grabs at Dover Street Market stores in Tokyo, London, New York and Los Angeles, as well as the COMME des GARÇONS store in Seoul.
Take a look at the campaign above, and mark your calendars. This one is sure to be high in-demand.
