Following their first collaboration back in 2022, Palace and C.P. Company have come together once again for a Holiday 2023 collection. The team-up serves as a collision of the Italian brand’s innovative sportswear with the uniquely British imprint’s eclectic aesthetic.
“Born in the South Bank, one of the most important hubs of London’s skate scene, Palace is known for fusing vintage and contemporary influences into streetwear silhouettes. For the second chapter of this collaboration, Palace has taken some of C.P. Company’s iconic shapes and fabrics, resulting in a collection that blends technical know-how with an experimental aesthetic and meticulous focus on detail,” shares Palace.
Leading the Palace C.P. Company Holiday 2023 collection is the Goggle Jacket outfitted with a removable fleece lining, made from Kan-D, a monofilament nylon named for its resemblance to the cellophane candy wrappers of the 1950s and 1960s. The jacket is marked by an extremely transparent texture and shiny surface accented by the “PALACE COMPANY” logo printed on the back, front branding, and flap pockets. The Goggle style has also been reimagined as a lined silhouette in bright and bold shiny orange. Utilizing Flatt Nylon, a brushed nylon that gives a softer, matte finish, the jacket features a hidden and removable face mask.
Elsewhere is the Explorer Jacket, the C.P. Company signature has been reimagined in D.D. Shell Rip-Stop, a thinner uncoated nylon combined with the Direct Down injection process to create a softer more nuanced light/dark effect. Palace has also worked with C.P. Company on a range of everyday garments which come in the form of cargo pants in Flatt Nylon, a hooded sweatshirt in cotton fleece, a short-sleeved T-shirt with graphics from both brands, and a lambswool funnel neck sweater.
Finally, the Palace C.P. Company Holiday 2023 collection is rounded up by accessories like the transformable Nylon B shoulder bag, cap with earflaps and goggle lenses, goggle beanie, and down-filled D.D. Shell scarf.
Marking the release, Palace has put together a campaign that celebrates C.P. Company’s rich heritage and to the great beauty of northern Italy. Starring Palace skate team members Lucien Clarke, Rory Milanes, Danny Brady, and artist Andrea Renzini – 1980s muse of Massimo Osti, the film is directed by Michael J. Fox and Stuart Hammond.
The Palace C.P. Company Holiday 2023 collection is set for both in-store and online releases starting December 8, 11 a.m. EDT on the brand’s official webstore, and in Japan on December 9, 11 a.m. JST on the Palace Japan webstore, and on the official “Palace_Skateboards” WeChat store December 9, 11 a.m. CST.
