Pigalle Basketball Collection by Alex Young

Stephane Ashpool breathes his love of basketball into his Parisian lifestyle brand, Pigalle. You may remember last Spring Pigalle teamed up with Nike to deliver a sport range that featured Air Force 1s, shorts, tanks and headwear; the brand then moved on to open up a basketball specific store in front of it's own court, Pigalle Duperré playground. To give back to his community Ashpool created the Pigalle Basketball Club, which allows youths to participate in official regional tournaments. Coinciding with the basketball concept is the Pigalle Basketball collection that consists of fashion-oriented pieces produced with performance and technical synthetic fabrics like mesh and nylon. A luxurious aspect is added to the delivery as lambskin leather and hand-dyed cotton with natural indigo fabrics are utilized. The Pigalle Basketball collection housing fleece, tank tops, hats, and an elegant bomber jacket with two variations is available here. Sales benefit Pigalle Basketball Club's upcoming trip to Philippines as an effort to keep kids active.
