PALACE Winter Drop : Look book

I have shied away thus far from posting every look book some of my favourite brands have posted for their winter campaigns. I was however very pleased to wake up to PALACE Skateboards offering. Below I have selected a few of my favourite pieces. The subversion of some classic logos like the Panasonic and Thames Television nods is clever and hints at banal english upbringing and the brands roots. 

There's an expected sense of nostalgia. The Olympic rings, tri-ferg re-appropriation works extremely well surprisingly. 

The outerwear is arguably the highlight, the trench coat and bomber jacket with 3M detailing are really clean. Palace's last two drops have been the most extensive since their inception, crossing over more and more from skate to fashion, growing stronger and having more influence as they progress.

The drop goes live on October 15th. Click through to their store for the full Autumn/ Winter collection, where all bases are covered from puffer coats to pin badges, the collection is fully fledged and definitely getting better.
