Palace Skateboards Drops a Men’s Winter Capsule Collection With Polo Ralph Lauren
Palace Skateboards, a streetwear brand founded by a former English skateboarder Lev Tanju, had often been the subject on the mouth those in the street fashion industry lately due to their outstanding designs and countless collaborations with big brands like Adidas, Reebok, Thames, ArkAir, Oakley, and Umbro. Their latest partnership comes was recently unveiled to be with a brand with an absolutely opposite image and identity. Everybody knows Polo Ralph Lauren. Their super classic items are something that you must have somehow and is currently somewhere in your wardrobe. Their clothing line is so versatile and timeless that Tanju once said in an interview “It’s the only brand that you can wear to a board meeting, a funeral and go to the football in — and all in the same day.” This inspiration led to the creation of the Palace x Polo Ralph Lauren collaboration.
The collection consists of winter menswear including tops, pants, outerwear, shoes, and accessories, totalling up to 17 items with prices ranging between $53 - $475 or about 1,748 - 15,657 THB. The collaboration sees classic Polo Ralph Lauren items feature playful colors as well as graphics and logos referencing Palace’s skateboarding roots. The modish contrast can be clearly seen in the Lookbook the features a number of Wild West-themed shots complete with regular Palace models riding around on horses dressed head to toe in Palace x Polo Ralph Lauren.
Stand-out apparel pieces include the Skate Polo Bear Sweater ($475 or 15,657 THB) that features the Polo Bear in a semi-formal outfit doing a kickflip on a skateboard, the Pyjama Engineered Equestrian Print ($295 or 9,723 THB) that brings bright colors, graphic horses, and geometric shapes all together on a chic silk pajama top, and the Classic Polo Cap Corduroy ($65 or 2,142 THB) featuring a colorful hybrid motif of Palace and Ralph Lauren on a classic Polo Ralph Lauren cap.
Although the Palace x Polo Ralph Lauren collection will not hit the shelves in Thailand and have already been sold out on the official websites of both brands, they are still available at Ralph Lauren Cat Street and Palace Tokyo stores in Japan and Ralph Lauren Garosu-gil and Comme des Garçons Seoul in South Korea. This collaboration between an iconic American fashion house and a younger, social media-respected fashion brand marks another seismic moment in the fashion industry. If you’re a fan of streetwear and prefer classic styles at the same time then this is definitely the collection for you.
