Pigalle Paris Show 2013 / 2014
PIGALLE is telling a story. It’s culture. The most interesting thing about PIGALLE is its dedication to a hip-hop clique mentality, owing itself to Ashpool’s own roots in inner city Paris. Not unlike the way a gang breeds a kind of street fraternity with its own unique fashion standards, PIGALLE is the designer’s extension of his ‘us against them’ attitude, going against the grain to produce ultimately wearable collections, time after time. PIGALLE exspresses the old and the new, it’s very thought out and coalesences different types of characters in one.
This collection references to 20th century jazz and gangster styles, athletic uniforms and modern staples all come together in a flurry of metallic glory. The pieces are executed with colorful premium wools and cottons, reiterating the tribal, family vibe that PIGALLE is wholly based on.
