Fresh from the conclusion of its Winter 2021 collection, Palace has unveiled its forthcoming collaborative capsule with Turin-based sportswear label Kappa, which sees the duo pay homage to timeless Italian street style and nineties British football culture.

To mark the pair’s first collaboration, Kappa invited Palace’s design team to Turin to dig into its extensive archive to draw inspiration from its plethora of epochal nintines sportswear. From tracksuits and Kappa-sponsored football kits to iconic pieces that had been reappropriated by various Britpop stars, the Palace team honed in on garments and various design aspects that almost immediately transported them back to the 1990s.

Stand-out pieces from the collaboration include a crinkle-effect long jacket which has been realised in a technical nylon with the “Maxi Kappa” logo on the shoulders and Palace’s reworked “banda” on the sleeves, while a Kappa 222 tracksuit in polytricot reinterpreted with a playful co-branded logo also catches the eye.

A selection of raglan-sleeve T-shirts inspired by classic football jerseys also arrive in blue, yellow, pink and black, alongside a boot bag which features a rubber iteration of the co-branded logo.

The Kappa x Palace collaboration is set to drop across the UK and US on December 3 at 11am GMT and 11am EDT respectively via the Palace webstore, with a release across Japan and China slated for December 4, as well as via the Palace WeChat channel.

In other fashion news, Liverpool-based retailer Outsiders Store has unveiled its new FW21 editorial.
