The Pigalle x NikeLab Collection includes the Pigalle x NikeLab Air Shake NDestrukt, Pigalle x NikeLab Benassi Duo Ultra Slide, Ashpool’s take on the classic sport slide and matching apparel. The collection is set to release on June 24th.
Inspired by Pigalle founder Stéphane Ashpool’s undying love of ’90s basketball remains standard. His latest collection with NikeLab advances this proposition, not only introducing new garments, but broadening scope to include silhouettes that work seamlessly for men and women. Ashpool estimates for every 10 customers at his Paris store, three are women, and while his aesthetic draws heavily from women’s haute couture, this is the first time he’s consciously pushed a NikeLab offering in a softer direction.
This approach, balancing masculine and feminine touches, is also consistent across the two footwear offerings in the collection.
“It was a pretty funky shoe to work on,” Ashpool says of the NikeLab Shake Ndestrukt x Pigalle. “These shoes have a strong volume, so I needed to reduce that. Using the Velcro and those colors, gives it a softer twist.”
The Pigalle x NikeLab Collection will release on June 24th, 2017 at select NikeLab retailers as well as online at Nike.com/NikeLab. Below you can check out the entire collection.
