British streetwear and skate brand PALACE partners with Amsterdam based textile innovation studio BYBORRE® for a knitted down-insulated jacket, which releases on February the 3rd as part of their Spring 2023 collection.
A futuristic take on 90's and 2000's embroidered jackets born in street culture, the Downtown Jacket is inspired by graphics and signs seen on Chinatowns' streets all around the world. By using contrasting yarn colors and playing with their 3D™ knitting technique, BYBORRE's knit engineers were able to find the perfect balance between the attached and puffy areas of the textile –allowing the outlines of the artwork to pop against the textile's dark blue base, similar to the downtown neon signs against the evening skies.
The jacket is made out of BYBORRE’s signature 3D™ knit, a three-layered knit structure that features an expandable middle layer, depending on where the front and back layers attach. Striving for a more sustainable and transparent supply chain, PALACE chose for a textile that is composed of OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and GRS certified recycled polyester yarns, made from post-consumption plastic bottles using a chemical-free recycling process.
