If you aren’t aware that Palace and Gucci are finally in cahoots, where the hell have you been?
Revealed last week via both brands’ official Instagram accounts, a collaboration – which has been the subject of countless online rumors for the last few months – is dropping this Friday.
Alongside a frankly wild Palace Gucci safe (of which only 10 have been made), the pair will be dropping only 50 collaborative MOTO GUZZI V7 motorbikes, with Highsnobiety being offered an exclusive closer look ahead of its release.
Admittedly, motorbikes aren’t necessarily my thing (and they might not be yours), but when one arrives doused in the signature motifs of two of the world’s hottest labels, as well as an all-over camouflage, it certainly grabs my attention.
Sure, I probably wouldn’t ride it (I don’t know how to for one) and it would likely spend its entire life taking pride of place in the centre of my living room, but who doesn’t want a Palace Gucci motorbike?
When it comes to pricing, both labels are keeping things pretty close to their chests, although a quick scoot online will show a classic MOTO GUZZI V7 priced anywhere between £8,000 and £10,000, so you can expect to pay a little more for Palace and Gucci's take.
While the collection will initially launch through Gucci’s Vault webstore on October 21, an IRL release is also penciled in at various stores across the globe.
Whether you’ll be able to pop into a Palace store and walk out with a motorbike is pretty unlikely though, so you'll probably have to place the order online.
Either way, a Palace Gucci bike is a pretty good prize for anyone who misses out on Supreme's latest Honda motorcycle — hell, it's actually even better.
Look, this might seem a little crazy (probably because it is), but this week we’re in a Palace Gucci world. Breathe it in.
Palace Gucci will be assuming physical form through Vault pop-up stores in Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Osaka, and Bangkok — the first brick-and-mortar moment for Vault — as well as Palace's flagship stores in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. You can find the London pop-up at Palace London, 26 Brewer Street, W1F 0SW.
