Paris-based streetwear label retailer Pigalle has reached across the continent to link with Italian luxury label Missoni on a capsule collection blending the two brands heritage into a cool assortment of sporty cozy looks.
According to Pigalle founder Stéphane Ashpool, the unisex collection arose from his admiration of the brand and its DNA as a family brand, a trait shared by Pigalle. “It came very naturally from my side. For a long time I’ve been following what Missoni do, and I’m a huge fan of the color in their work,” said Ashpool in an interview with Dazed Digital. “I read the story of [Missoni founder] Ottavio Missoni maybe ten years ago and I was really impressed by it, being a man into this industry having a past in sport. I could relate.”
The Missoni and Pigalle collection is comprised of appealing separates, awesome hooded robes and a very dope woven decorative basketball. Look for these items to drop at Colette, Dover Street Market Ginza and Pigalle stores during the second half of April 2017.
