First Look at New Ralph Lauren Collab With Skate Brand Palace
The All-American fashion giant joins forces with a buzzy skatewear brand.
Last week, London-based skatewear label Palace announced that a collaboration with Ralph Lauren was underway, and now, the first images for the highly-anticipated collection is here for us to eyeball.
First of all, the Palace x Ralph Lauren line features a pretty awesome twist on the classic Polo bear sweater — The bear is perfectly executing a kickflip. Siiick. An iconic sweater indeed, and I would wear it every single day if I had one.
The other pieces in the collection include a cool Polo jacket, shirts with horses printed on them, retro Ralph Lauren graphics, loafers, and corduroy pants, among other things.
And as you can see, there’s a lot of tartan prints and Buffalo plaid, and the entire collaboration is just a whole lot of Americana, consistent with the classic Ralph Lauren theme.
In an interview with Business of Fashion, Palace founder Lev Tanju and co-owner Gareth Skewis said that prices will be similar to Palace’s usual prices — around $60 for a t-shirt, and $230 for a jacket.
Now, please note those incredible loafers in the picture above. I. want. those. loafers. They scream Ralph Lauren while being funkier than the brand’s normal footwear.
The buzzy collaboration between an upstart skatewear brand and an all-American fashion giant is making at least some fashionable heads spin, and Twitter has a lot of feelings on it, per usual.

The Palace x Ralph Lauren collection drops November 9th, but with pieces this cool, everything is probably going to sell out real quick, so you might want to act fast if you’re feeling these looks.
