Parisian creative collective Pigalle has gone from strength-to-strength since its inception by a group of young DJs dubbed “PainOchoKolat.” Following this debut, the group set up the eponymous fashion brand in the heart of Paris’s red light district — where the trademark monochromatic logo was christened, before making its way onto the chests of A$AP Rocky et al — and founded nightclub Pompon along the way. It then comes as no surprise that the 2013 fall/winter collection is as dynamic as the group’s own ventures. Although strong similarities are prominent in the application of varied patterns and fabrications, the collection appears to split between a dichotomy of contexts.
