Logo Mania Takes Over the Calvin Klein x Palace x Vans Authentic
Release: 8 April 2022

The latest collaboration from Palace and Calvin Klein has absolutely taken over the feeds over the past few days. While the skate brand's collaborations never struggle to garner attention – including those with Salomon, Polo Ralph Lauren and more – for this round they tapped actor Willem Dafoe to front the campaign, alongside many other notable figures, of course including the Pet Shop Boys.

Known as CK1, the collection showcases CK's notorious minimalism with Palace’s irreverent modern style that they are known and loved for. Further celebrating nostalgia, self-expression and inclusivity, the collection sees Palace’s aesthetic layered onto CK’s signature pieces like underwear, denim, t-shirts and fleeces. The range also extends to a women’s dedicated line of underwear, which is in fact a first for Palace. Not limited to the above, the collection also includes basketball jerseys, baggy shorts and more.,

Now to cap it all off, Palace have tapped not only CK, but also Vans for a three-headed project. As a nod to their own roots in Skate culture and Calvin Klein's American heritage, they’ve created the CalVans, a limited run of Authentics loaded with logo mania! And not just any old logo mania, a new logo marrying both brands together has been created.

Keen to cop? The collaborative Vans Authentic will be able from Friday, April 8.
