With Paris’s famed concert hall, the Salle Pleyel set as the background canvas, Pigalle stormed the bright lights of Paris Fashion Week to debut its Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Leaning mightily on Stephane Ashpool’s love affair with all things activewear, the assemblage proved prime to showcase a full-on spectrum of sportswear-inflicted pieces, spanning everything from sneakers, hoodies and track pants — all filtered through the creative prism of the Pigalle lens, of course.

An explosion of colors pierced the presentation, with pink, yellow, green, blue, red and white finding a home on a medley of staples, including crewneck tops, lightweight outerwear, button-down shirts and trousers. Gold made its presence felt on a collarless metallic jacket and a buttoned vest, not to mention being used as ornamental accents found smeared on the faces and/or arms of featured models. Other quirky accents, too, graced the stage as sequin-blitzed earphones, an elaborate wire headpiece, colorblocked elements and an array of patterned prints, surely caught the eye.

The lifestyle label also took time to unwrap its new special project with Converse, unveiling a set of Chuck Taylor All Star silhouettes, which thematically took on the personalities of select Parisian artists — each of whom made cameo appearances in the show. A Chuck 70 Hi drenched in metallic silver spoke for Muddy Monk, metallic gold-adorned Chuck 70s creatively stood of rapper Icon, rock musician Papooz received a red & blue Chuck Hi, the Grande Ville crew donned a pair of fluorescent-adorned Chuck 70s, while Bonnie Banane looked fit in her low-cut white Chucks. However striking, these special edition sneakers are not for sale and will not release to the public.

Be sure to peep the images above for a closer look at the dramatic performance-centric presentation. Meanwhile, check in with us for all of our Pars Fashion Week coverage.
