PIGALLE is more than just a district in Paris, for Stéphane Ashpool, the seedy neighborhood around Moulin Rouge was home for much of his childhood. So when the opportunity came to name his own apparel brand, PIGALLE was the obvious choice. Another “given” was his desire to collaborate with Nike, which will be a reality in two weeks as the PIGALLE x Nike Collection becomes available, including the much-talked about PIGALLE x Nike Air Force 1. In either low-cut or high, both derived from inspirations of aged basketball and well-word athletic gears. Made from burnished leather, antiqued hardware and slightly scuffed appliqué, the two PIGALLE x Nike Air Force 1s are like time capsules to basketball’s past. Scheduled to launch near the end of April 2014, the PIGALLE x Nike Air Force 1 High & Low will be available at select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide.
