Palace, the iconic London streetwear brand known for its unpredictable collaborations and boundary-pushing designs, are set to launch a groundbreaking collection in partnership with Kappa, tailored exclusively for the BWT Alpine F1 Team.
Extending beyond the realm of apparel, as they featuring a one-of-a-kind Palace-designed A523 car livery that will make its debut at the prestigious Las Vegas Grand Prix.
Palace is no stranger to unique partnerships and unexpected collaborations. While many brands stick to the expected lanes of inline releases and standard collaborations, Palace consistently goes against the grain. From working with traditional sportswear brands like New Balance, Reebok, and adidas to unexpected ventures with names like Stella Artois, Harrods, and McDonald's, Palace has solidified its status as a trendsetter in the fashion world.
The upcoming Palace and Kappa collaboration for the BWT Alpine F1 Team is not the brand's first foray into motorsports. In 2022, Palace joined forces with Mercedes for a custom-designed AMG GT3, showcasing its versatility and ability to bridge the gap between skate culture and high-performance racing.
The collection, which marks Palace's eighth drop, is set to feature a range of items alongside the Kappa collaboration. The partnership with Kappa for the Alpine Formula 1 Team brings a fresh perspective to motorsports fashion, aligning with the rising trend in this space.
The collection, produced and designed by Kappa, will debut at the Las Vegas Grand Prix alongside A$AP Rocky's PUMA collection. It includes a specially designed A523 car in Alpine's signature pink, blue, and black hues, reflecting a true fusion of streetwear aesthetics and high-speed racing culture. The accompanying apparel capsule features a variety of items, from color-blocked racing jackets to rain jackets, gilets, body warmers, sponsored tees, hoodies, and New Era's 9FIFTY driver caps.
This unexpected collaboration, landing online on November 17, is poised to make a significant impact in the world of fashion and Formula 1, showcasing Palace's ability to defy expectations and create groundbreaking partnerships. The collection will be available at The Venetian Shop in Las Vegas and online through Palace's official webstore and the Palace Japan webstore.
Palace Skatboards continues to redefine the boundaries of streetwear, proving that when it comes to collaborations, anything is possible.
