London Brand Palace Opens China’s First Digital Store on JD.com
by Doris Liu
Palace Skateboards, also commonly known as Palace, launched its first online flagship store in China on JD.com, dropping its latest autumn collection on August 6.
Available in the JD store, the brand’s iconic graphics can be found on the Polartec 1/4 Zip Jacket, Tabloid denim jacket, Palace Payne Shirt and the Palace x adidas capsule collection, alongside an extensive array of clothing and accessories.
The store will release new products every Saturday morning at 11am during the seasonal periods, enabling Chinese customers to catch up with the latest global drops.
Before the partnership with China’s leading e-commerce company, Palace used cross-border parcel delivery, which could take 1-2 weeks for customers in China to receive their orders from the official website. Now with JD’s authenticity guarantee and robust in-house logistics network, the period of delivery is significantly shortened.
Palace, the buzzy skateboarding and clothing brand established in London in 2009 by Levent Tanju and Gareth Skewis, has gradually carved out a niche in the streetwear market. With its signature triangle logo referred to as Tri-Ferg, the acclaimed skateboard brand has collaborated with Ralph Lauren, adidas, Reebok and many other leading brands across the fashion and sports universe.
With in-depth insight into the fashion industry and a trusted ecosystem, JD is home to a growing number of luxury, fashion and designer brands. To further capture Gen Z, brands such as Maison Margiela, AMI Paris, Stone Island, Yohji Yamamoto and Gentle Monster have opened flagship stores on JD.
