Collection Capsule Evisu x Palace
The English label PALACE and the legendary Japanese denim brand EVISU unveil the second part of their collaboration. After a first opus released last year (article available HERE), the two partners are back to continue celebrating EVISU’s impact on the London rave scene of the late 90s-early 2000s.
Founded by Mr. Hidehiko Yamane in 1991, EVISU became a global success in the late 90’s thanks to the quality of its denim and its innovative and eye-catching designs. In particular, the Japanese brand’s emblem : the symbol of a large hand-painted seagull. Appearing as a pioneer in custom clothing, EVISU’s brand is adorned with a slogan that refers to John Lennon’s words to Elvis : « Before anyone did anything, EVISU did everything ».
To honor the style of the end of the last century, the pieces in this capsule collection have a retro look and are made, for the most part, with 13.5 oz selvedge denim or 475g/m2 brushed cotton. We find a dark blue denim jacket and pants, an off-white crewneck jogging set, a cotton work shirt and matching jeans, a heavy hoodie, a sweater and t-shirts. The centerpiece is definitely the white and blue satin varsity style jacket.
This collection is complemented by accessories such as caps, beanies, tote bags and a denim football. All items are co-branded and some are adorned with brightly colored logos to add boldness to the design.
The Capsule Evisu x Palace collection will be released on September 24, 2021, in PALACE stores in London, New York and Los Angeles, and online at palaceskateboards.com. Be ready !
