Pigalle most people is actually a place in Paris, named after the French Sculptor Jean – Baptise Pigalle. For those in the urban fashion world, Pigalle (pronounced Pig – al) is actually is one of the hottest streetwear clothing brands in Europe and possibly the world.
With the founder of Pigalle’s family having their roots in fashion, this definitely helped Stephane Ashpool (founder) let his creativity take over in shaping the urban fashion world to his vision, especially within men’s urban fashion.
Street style fashion was once dominated by North American brands with their oversize patterns and cuts but Ashpool has put his Parisian style on this type of fashion over the past 5 to 6 years. When Stephane originally started out he wanted to put his hood (Paris) on the map for urban fashion and also a culture that he believed in.
The music industry has taken to this particular brand in a big way with artists like ASAP Rocky and Rihanna having been seen wearing Pigalle shirts as well as a long list of other high profile celebs.
