After numerous successful releases in 2014, Nike and Pigalle rekindle their relationship with a collaborative take on the iconic Dunk silhouette. The timeless hi-top is rendered in a black base, and features an all-over white speckled print, which can be seen on many of the Parisian brand’s garments, the Swoosh rendered in a translucent rubber material, and Pigalle’s upside down “P” branding placed at the heel counter. Technical elements are also incorporated in this design, including a translucent mudguard that wraps around the entire upper, rubber reinforcement for increased support, and a transparent lacelock for an improved fit. The weatherized upper is placed atop of a tonal black midsole, further accentuating the speckled pattern. Pigalle’s brainchild Stephane Ashpoole is an avid basketball enthusiast, making this silhouette an obvious choice for a collaboration.
Ideal for a game of basketball, both indoor and outdoor, purchase the Pigalle x NikeLab Dunk along with the T-shirt at select retailers including Dover Street Market starting June 27. Expect to see some more Pigalle x Nike goods to be released later on in the year.
