Following the success of their first collaboration, CP Company and Palace team up again for another collection that combines the Italian brand's innovative sportswear with Palace's eclectic aesthetic.

Born in the South Bank, one of the most important centers of London's skate scene, Palace is known for fusing vintage and contemporary influences into streetwear silhouettes. For this second installment of this collaboration, Palace has appropriated some of CP Company's iconic shapes and fabrics, creating a collection that combines technical know-how, experimental aesthetics and meticulous attention to detail.

The Goggle Jacket, with its removable fleece liner, is made from Kan-D, a monofilament nylon, so named for its resemblance to cellophane candy wrappers of the 1950s and 1960s, offering an extremely sheer texture and shiny surface . The transparency of the fabric highlights the PALACE x COMPANY logo printed on the back, the branding on the front and all the flap pockets.

The Goggle model itself has been recreated in a lined silhouette and a bright, shiny orange colorway, also thanks to the use of Flatt Nylon, a brushed nylon that gives a softer fabric and a matte finish. The jacket is equipped with a hidden, removable face mask.

Meanwhile, the Explorer jacket, another icon of the CP Company catalog, has been reproduced in DD Shell Rip-Stop, a finer uncoated nylon which, combined with the Direct Down injection process, gives the garments greater softness and a more nuanced light/shadow effect.

Palace's irreverent approach is even more evident in the range's accessories, such as the Convertible Nylon B Crossbody Bag. Thanks to its versatile structure, it can be used as a backpack or messenger bag with adjustable straps and curls. The range also includes a Goggle beanie with a straight visor, a down-filled DD Shell scarf and a baseball cap with ear flaps and protective lenses at the back.

The second installment of the collaboration also includes a range of everyday clothing, such as Flatt Nylon cargo pants, a cotton fleece hoodie, a short-sleeved t-shirt with both brands' distinctive graphics and a lambswool turtleneck.

To celebrate the launch, Palace has created a beautiful campaign that serves as a love letter to the rich heritage of CP Company and the great beauty of Northern Italy. Directed by Michael J. Fox and Stuart Hammond, the film stars Palace skate team members Lucien Clarke, Rory Milanes, Danny Brady and artist Andrea Renzini - Massimo Osti's 1980s muse.

The collaboration will be available from December 8 in Palace stores, online at palaceskateboards.com and exclusively at the CP Company flagship in Milan and online at cpcompany.com .

About CP Company:

In 1971 Massimo Osti, a young graphic designer from Bologna who would go on to be recognized as the “godfather of urban sportswear,” founded the brand Chester Perry, famous for its screen-printed t-shirts. In 1978 he changed the name to CP Company. This drier, more mature name inaugurated one of the most explosive and influential bursts of creativity in the history of sportswear.

Over the last decades the brand has continued to pioneer a connoisseurial hybrid style that combines the functionality of vintage military, work and sportswear with intense fabric research and innovation, heightened by using garment dyeing, a technique which CP Company was the first brand in the world to pioneer in the mid-1970s. This hybridization of functional menswear and Italian fabric innovation is the origin of CP Company and still today remains the basis of every piece of clothing to carry the CP Company label.


Palace Skateboards the disruptive, witty and always surprising London based brand that authentically straddles the worlds of high fashion, streetwear and core skate. Founded in 2009 by Lev Tanju and Gareth Skewis, the brand is available at Palace flagship stores globally in London, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo as well as online & Dover Street Market London and Los Angeles.
