In April 2022, Palace‘s collaboration with Calvin Klein was the talk of the town — and further afield all around the world. Now, the London stalwart is bringing its collection back just in time for the Holiday period.
CK1 Palace will be available in limited quantities, bringing back the underwear for men and women as well as the CK1 Palace fragrance; itself a twist on the iconic CK ONE scent with notes of “Frosted Mandarin,” “Violet Leaf” and “Oakmoss.”
As we all remember, the underwear was an instant hit, capturing Palace’s name along with Calvin Klein’s moniker on the waist band for an unmissable fashion hit and nod to oneself feeling like a 2000’s Calvin Klein advert model. The underwear comes in white, gray, and black as expected.
Building on the momentum of April’s drop, the re-release stars in its own movie directed by Palace’s Lev Tanju and Stuart Hammond. Leading the movie is Uma Thurman, while cameo appearances from friends of the brand like Michael Imperioli, Roddy Ricch, Ethel Cain and the Palace Skate Crew make this international story quintessentially Palace. Shot between London, New York, Los Angeles and Blackpool, it finds the cast in the Big Apple depicting a storyline evocative of vintage CK adds, before the skateboarding label injects its tongue-in-cheek and surreal attitude (think Lucien Clarke pulling out bar chimes supposedly from his pants).
Before the film ends, Palace and co. are seen in various scenarios remaking references to old CK underwear adds, with a moment that would put Baywatch to shame.
The CK1 Palace re-stock is set to arrive on December 9 at Palace London, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo stores, as well as on Palace’s website and on Calvin Klein’s website per the former’s usual drop time of 11 a.m. GMT/EDT/CST/JST.
