Founder and Creative Director of Pigalle
Nearly a decade after its inception, Pigalle has made the swift jump from a promising retailer to a progressive label with fans in very high places. In recent years, the company's driving creative light, Stephane Ashpool, has taken the ideas he first developed at the creative agency Vida9 and created a fully-formed e-commerce platform for his collections and worked with sportswear's biggest brand, Nike. In 2017, Ashpool and Pigalle have taken their collective efforts and moved them into the fields of high-profile collaborations outside of their comfort zone: Casio G-Shock watches, PORTER goods, SUPER by RETROSUPERFUTURE sunglasses and Missoni products all bear his label's name. Outside of joint creations, Ashpool has also ensured Pigalle's place on the runway, delivering some of this year's most eye-catching showcases.
