The rumors are true: Palace Gucci is indeed a thing and it's finally here. As you'd expect of any major Palace or Gucci drop, the collaborative collection ain't little.
For a while, the link-up between the Alessandro Michele-led luxury house and the skateboarding brand co-founded by Lev Tanju and Gareth Skewis was pretty much hush-hush. A few wagging tongues hyped up streetwear heads with teases and rumors but there was never an official comment from either company.
Until October 14, when Palace and Gucci silenced all hearsay. Launching on October 21 on Gucci Vault's website and select Gucci and Palace stores, Palace Gucci truly is massive.
Honestly, I expected nothing less from Gucci and Palace, as both are known for their large-scale collaborations and giant seasonal collections. Small drops just don't cut it with these two (just peep Gucci x adidas or any Palace drop for that matter).
For Palace Gucci, Palace's famed Tri-Feg motif undergoes Gucci-fication, manifesting as a collaborative logo stamped on graphic tees, hoodies, and a monogram duffle bag.
There's even a tiny coin purse that takes on the shape of Palace's Tri-feg while boasting the special collaborative GG-P monogram.
That co-branded monogram advances Gucci's logo-manic agenda, dressing everything from a wool beanie to footwear to, erm, a literal safe.
Yes, you read that right. The Palace x Gucci collection includes a monogrammed safe, equipped with a gilded lock and handle, leather detailing, and Gucci's signature woven red and green stripe as a sort of physical manifestation of the Gucci Vault.
In short, your luxe goods are safe with Gucci and Palace.
Appropriately, Palace and Gucci also provided a leather biker ensemble. Watch out, riders. The Palace Gucci biker boyz will be riding out soon.
Even all of the products mentioned earlier barely scratch the Palace Gucci collection's surface.
There are also football jerseys, jeans, loafers, running shoes, handbags, umbrellas, and womenswear (Palace's first time taking a stab at goods just for the ladies).
The Palucci (a clever collab nickname invented by Highsnobiety Style Writer Tayler Willson) collection will be soon landing at the aforementioned Gucci and Palace outlets but, even if there aren't any near you, take heart: Palace Gucci will also be releasing across the globe through a series of Gucci Vault pop-ups, the first-ever in-person Vault stores.
