NikeLab and Pigalle have been collaborating since 2014, and basketball has a constant source of inspiration.
His latest collection with NikeLab advances this proposition, not only introducing new garments, but broadening scope to include silhouettes that work for men and women.“It’s an evolution of ’90s basketball allure from the U.S., but in an elegant, Parisian way,” describes Ashpool. “When you put all the stuff together, it’s exactly the way I want it to be. You have this sporty value, but at the same time if you wear it well, you can go out at night.”
“The best garments have a balance between heritage and future-thinking technique,” he explains.
Every garment is thoughtfully produced to consider on- and off-court wear, delivering easy Parisian street-style elegance to silhouettes with authentic hard-court connections.
And also the ubiquitous pool slides have a more feminine approach: two thinner, more elegant straps.
The collection launches June 24th at NikeLab stores.
