PALLADIUM PRESENTS L’ORIGINALE
As the brand hits the big 7-0, a dip into the archives.
With seven decades, numerous designs and a multitude of collaborations to its name (think contemporary faves such as Alpha Industries and Liam Hodges), French brand Palladium is just about ready to celebrate. How, you might ask? With more work, naturally.
Just dropped in-store and online, the footwear label presents L’Originale, a special collection that sees it exploring its vast archive and arriving at an update of the iconic Pampa Hi model. Once worn by the French Foreign Legion – as a new short, above, explains – today’s revamp retains the classic silhouette, adding a modern edge for the contemporary explorer.
Produced in a series of special OG colourways – amongst them blue, black and brown – elsewhere a new Paradrop insole (read: super thick PU footbed created to outlast extra-long days with improved comfort and softness) features, likewise a heavy gauge canvas outer. The first of many anniversary highlights, we’re betting.
