Missoni has announced a capsule collection with French streetwear brand Pigalle, founded by French designer Stéphane Ashpool.
The collection will be a joint design project by Missoni’s Creative Director Angela Missoni and Ashpool, blending the Missoni Italian craftsmanship with Pigalle’s French streetwear style.
For the collaboration, Missoni sourced their archives from selecting patterns in beige and yellow and navy and purple that were reworked into triangular patchwork fabric that were incorporated into Pigalle urban contemporary designs which includes a – raglan-sleeved varsity bomber jacket, a fur-stitch robe, fleece track pants, sweatshirts and a jersey T-shirt. The line will also feature a basketball covered in temari, a Japanese knitting technique.
The collaboration slated to be released this month, April exclusively at Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in Ginza, Tokyo, and at Pigalle stores. www.pigalle-paris.com
