This season, Missoni is teaming up with Pigalle to create a capsule collection that combines the luxury knitwear of the former with the elevated sportswear of the latter, filtered and refined through a Parisian eye. Missoni mined its archive patterns, dating back between 1985 and 2010, and applied them onto iconic Pigalle pieces through triangular patchwork fabrics. The resulting collection, rendered in beige-yellow and a blue-purple variants, features standout pieces like the raglan-sleeved varsity bomber jacket and pima-cotton fur-stitch robe, both lined in a technical nylon sport mesh reminiscent of basketball jerseys. They're joined by a fleece track pant and sweatshirt with patchwork side-panel inserts, alongside a jersey t-shirt and deerstalker cap. A collectible basketball, finished in Japanese temari, completes the range. Look for the goods to launch this month at colette, Dover Street Market Ginza and Pigalle stores.
