Italian sportswear staple Kappa have announced they will be linking up with Palace for their first-ever capsule together.
The Palace design team dived into the Kappa archive in Turin to create the new collection, which takes the skate imprint’s love for 90’s football and timeless Italian street style and channels it into re-interpreted and refined Kappa apparel.
Inspired by iconic players such as Totti and Van Basten and pieces donned by The Gallaghers during their Britpop-era heyday, the Palace design team focused on archival garments that look every bit like “Tony Soprano off to Southbank to do a quick ten set.”
The co-branded Kappa x Palace collaboration includes a “90’s-fit” crinkle-effect long jacket in technical nylon with the Maxi Kappa logo on the shoulders and Palace’s reworked “band” running along the sleeves. Palace also reinterpret Kappa’s 222 Banda tracksuit in poly-tricot in a Lazio-inspired colourway, which comes with a reinterpreted joint logo.
There are also T-shirts with Raglan sleeves – that reference iconic Parma and Juve shirts from the era – with blue, yellow, pink, and black iterations all available in the range, corresponding co-branded baseball caps and a black rubber boot bag rounding out the collection.
You can cop the Kappa x Palace collection from 11am GMT Friday 3rd Dec via Palace stores in London, NYC, LA and Tokyo ; DSM – London and LA and palaceskateboards.com – get a closer look at the range below.
