The PALACE KAPPA FOR ALPINE collection is a beacon of contemporary style. This innovative collaboration combines the distinctive flair of skate and streetwear giant Palace with the classic athleticism of Italian sportswear brand Kappa®, all under the banner of the prestigious Alpine name.
At the heart of this collaboration is the unique Alpine A523, an exclusive race car designed by Palace for the Las Vegas Grand Prix. Imagine the sleek, aerodynamic lines of this vehicle, adorned with the distinctive Palace aesthetic, racing through the neon-lit streets of Las Vegas. This vehicle is a fashion statement on wheels, symbolising the fusion of high-octane sport and high-fashion sensibilities.
The union extends beyond the track. BWT Alpine F1 Team drivers Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon, along with the entire team, wear a specially designed kit for the Las Vegas event, showcasing the synergistic blend of Palace’s edgy design and Kappa®’s timeless sportswear charm. The collection consists of a range of garments that will be available exclusively at a pop-up at the Las Vegas Venetian boutique, followed by a global release on Palace’s e-shop.

Each piece, from technical polo shirts to tracksuits, embodies a bold yet sophisticated style. The range consists of ten key pieces, including a pit jacket, rain jacket, vests and shorts, all available in eye-catching colour combinations such as black and blue with pink trims or beige and stone with blue trims. Palace classics such as hoodies and T-shirts come in black, blue, beige and pink, each proudly bearing the brand’s iconic logo.
The collection is complemented by two exclusive 9FIFTY driver’s caps from New Era, which reflect the collection’s colour palette. They’re not just caps, they’re the crowning glory of a fashion revolution that fuses the world of Formula 1 with the realm of street style.
The launch is further supported by a captivating video campaign directed by Femi Ladi. The film follows the journey of a Formula 1 driver from a Las Vegas hotel room to the grid, interspersed with appearances by Palace drivers. It’s a visual feast that captures the excitement and energy of both the fashion line and the Grand Prix.
Alpine’s David Gendry and BasicNet Group’s Lorenzo Boglione are extremely proud of the collaboration. “We are delighted to unveil this unique collaboration with iconic brand Palace and our partner Kappa®. It was a first for Alpine to work on such a joint project, where fashion meets sports brands so perfectly,” said Lorenzo Boglione. It’s a testament to the evolving world of fashion, where sport meets street in a beautiful symphony.
