Pigalle and Missoni have revealed their men’s wear collaboration.
Although Pigalle’s basketball influences aren’t intrinsic to Missoni, the brand’s designer and founder Stéphane Ashpool found commonalities between himself and Ottavio Missoni, who started the Italian line.
“Ottavio Missoni is one person that I’ve always admired a lot in this industry. I see many similarities between us,” said Ashpool. “He came from a sport world; he has a strong attitude; he loves color, and has an elegant taste for eccentricity and a big value for the family. It’s the same [as Pigalle]. So in a way I feel like a baby of the Missoni values.”
The men’s wear capsule collection will be available this month exclusively at Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in Tokyo’s Ginza district and Pigalle stores in Paris and Tokyo.
