London-based streetwear giant Palace Skateboards is gearing up for the Fall 2023 season with a highly anticipated collection as the brand took to Instagram to tease seasonal themes set to release later this year.
The first image shared by Palace showcases a halted motorcycle rider on the road, sporting a robust leather jacket protecting him from intense winds. The jacket is a collaboration with Avirex, an iconic US outerwear manufacturer renowned for its high-quality leather goods. The varsity-style jacket is adorned with gothic "PALACE" lettering on the upper back, overlaying "New York" branding in tribute to the Big Apple. The back of the jacket features a fire brigade-inspired badge with collaborative Palace and Avirex branding, as well as the number "75" at the center. Speedy "PALACE LONDON" markings complete the rear design, featuring a striking combination of grey leather with red, white, and black accents and striped textile perimeters.
Established in 1975, Avirex has a rich history of producing military aviation apparel for the US armed forces, becoming synonymous with impactful garments that later gained popularity in the streetwear and music scenes. This collaboration with Palace marks a continuation of their successful partnership, producing graphic-heavy outerwear season after season.
The blend of Palace's distinct style with Avirex's iconic craftsmanship is sure to create a standout collection that will captivate fashion enthusiasts worldwide.
Stay tuned for more updates and information regarding the collection's release.
