Bolstering Palace’s forthcoming weekly drop is a surprise collaboration teased via social media. Renowned Moroccan fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac will join the skate label for a special range of graphic wearables.

Best known for his graphical, color-saturated womenswear, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac — often shortened to JC de Castelbajac — cut his teeth at Iceberg in the early ’80s before branching out with his eponymous line. Occasionally drawing comparisons to Jean-Paul Gaultier for his playful, well-crafted garments, Castelbajac temporarily removed himself from fashion in 2015, before returning as the creative director of United Colors of Benetton. Based in Italy, Benetton has been in business since 1967 and shares quite a few of Castelbajac’s trademarks, including explosive color and covetable knitwear.

Castelbajac and Benetton are extremely popular in Europe and Japan, and this Palace collaboration may aid in familiarizing young consumers in North America. Though the teasers are edited so as to partially obscure the clothes, a few items jump out. These include a hoodie and hat emblazoned with a Triferg made of colorful, interlocking arms and several shirts that boast imagery of fanned-out playing cards. “When I play… always… Aces!” Castelbajac intones in the video. “I am the best!” Matching bucket hats are complemented by graphic knitwear, a Castelbajac signature.

The Jean-Charles de Castelbajac collaboration hits Palace’s web store and storefronts on May 24.
