Palladium, most recently known for their highly successful partnership with Pharrell, have added another powerful relationship, this time teaming up with designer Richard Chai for a capsule collection for Fall 2012. The collection was unveiled at Chai’s F/W ’12 runway show this week at New York Fashion Week. The styles blend the authentic heritage of Palladium with Richard’s modern take on menswear, giving us pieces that are impeccably designed and are authentic as well.
Richard Chai has created his own version of the Pampa Hi, one of Palladium’s iconic boot designs dating back to the brand’s role as a supplier to the French Foreign Legion in the 1940s. Additionally, Chai chose the Pampa Tactical, a modern take on Palladium’s original silhouette featuring the classic rubber outsole and toe cap. All styles feature Chai’s own custom fabrics, including corduroy and felted wool.
Shots of some of our favorite styles can be found below while you can expect the goods to be available through high-end boutiques come October 2012.
