Editor’s Notes: Take an official look at what’s to come from the latest Palace x adidas Originals drop in an ongoing collaboration between the London-based brand and the German sportswear giant.
Palace originally took to Instagram to showcase sneak previews of the upcoming capsule, showing off a homage to the German flag in the form of a red, black, and gold beach towel, complete with Palace branding and black and gold stripes.
Now we can reveal that Germany is, in fact, paid tribute to in the latest Palace x adidas Originals drop, as well as Italy and France – two popular European summer destinations.
The collaboration is split into three categories: Apparel, footwear, and accessories. Both Italy and France get their own towel and adilette slides, while each of the three countries’ national colors are featured on a set of crew socks, shorts, and a T-shirt.
The pool slides are debossed with repeating Palace font logos, while the T-shirts and shorts feature the same material as the towel; the apparel is supposed to keep the wearer cool in the heat of summer and soak up any unwanted perspiration. In addition, adidas’ heritage as the world’s leading football brand is brought to the forefront as the T-shirt and shorts conjure a distinct vintage football silhouette.
Retail ranges from $15 for the socks to $90 for the shorts. Let us know in the comments what you’re looking to cop.
