Missoni launches capsule collection with Pigalle

Italian fashion label Missoni will present this month a capsule collection created in collaboration with Pigalle, the brand founded by French designer Stephane Ashpool. The collection was jointly designed by Ashpool and Missoni's Creative Director Angela Missoni, resulting in a blend of classic Italian craftsmanship and French-style streetwear. It will be available exclusively at Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in Ginza, Tokyo, and at Pigalle stores.


The collection is rooted in basketball codes, evident in the mix of Pigalle's high-end streetwear and Missoni's signature knitwear, and it is also a tribute to Missoni's founder Ottavio Missoni, himself a sport enthusiast and former Olympic hurdler. Unconventionality, family values, an emphasis on colours and a close connection with craftsmanship are some of the distinctive traits linking Missoni and Pigalle.

The Italian label delved into its archives from the 1985-2010 period, choosing patterns that were then reworked in triangular patchwork fabric and used to produce a selection of Pigalle's signature items, giving a contemporary, urban twist to Missoni's timeless style. The collection features two colour variants, one in beige-yellow and the other in navy-purple.
