The release of a 70-piece talk-of-the-town collab between Gucci and Palace isn't a coincidence this late into the year. We're already in countdown mode until the year ends, and the last we checked, we've got roughly 70 days left before 2023 comes around. But what has numerology got to do with the first-ever collab between the two, released under the banner of Gucci Vault, which is the Italian fashion house's experimental arm in partnerships? Well, nothing more than a good omen, really. This might even be one heck of a stylish advent calendar for folks who are into that sort of thing. Alessandro Michele invited Palace co-founders and legit skaters Lev Tanju and Gareth Skewis to imagine a collection that is as quintessentially skater culture-driven as it is high-end Italian. Those in the know would already spot Palace’s hits in the mix, plucked directly from its back catalogue of hits collected over the last decade. Expect football jerseys, embroidered check shirts and motocross jackets, and plenty of hoodies to outfit a crew. This is also the first-time Palace has an offering of ready-to-wear for ladies too with items such as bootcut jeans, pleated skirt, and bikinis in the line-up. What is perhaps expected is the merging of logos and signature patterns that have become de rigueur in most collabs that feature on hot ticket items such as duffle bags and shoulder bags. Think the double-G of Gucci with Palace’s Tri-Ferg, and the Gucci Horsebit and monogram being paired with a Palace P charm. But if you’re looking for something truly special, Gucci has also participated in Palace’s obsession with motorcycle culture with the offering of a custom V7 motorbike by Moto Guzzi, a 101-year-old Italian motorcycle manufacturer known for its unique transverse V-twin engine. Only 50 will be produced. Even rarer of an offering is the 10-piece Palace Gucci trunk-like safe box – it’s a literal nod to the Gucci Vault – that features the co-branded monogram on the exterior and a plush embossed suede interior. The collection will launch online on October 21 along with in-store sales in selected cities namely London, Milan, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Osaka, and Bangkok.
