Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated events for skateboarding culture in 2018 is the Palace x Ralph Lauren drop. The collaboration marks an unconventional venture and the iconic brand's inaugural integration into the world of skateboarding. The collection was released in London after it had created sizable hype with its advertising materials -- from lookbooks and billboards to video trailers.

Highlights from the Palace x Ralph Lauren drop include a warm co-branded puffer jacket, as well as a graphic sweatshirt that features a "kickflipping Polo Bear." Of course, worth mentioning are the Polo-branded skate decks as well. The collaboration marks an interesting direction for Ralph Lauren, as the brand is extending itself to a more street-forward aesthetic.
