Last week, the veritable Parisian rebel dandies at Pigalle Paris, led by designer and founder Stephane Ashpool, revealed their new collection entitled Nouvelle Eve. A beautifully juxtaposed approach and concept that revels in the throwback, nostalgic era of a salacious, speak-easy Paris. An age where a masculine wit and charm seduces the both the very best and very worst secrets of the city. A collection that, in their words, engages with “an age of intense virility, elegance and a nonchalantly assumed femininity”. From felt hats in exclusive hare felt to velvets: everything is about touch and taste and a bohemian Paris of yesteryear.
Check out the smokey theatrics of the video created from the collection show that is very Lynchian with its surreal characters and the back stage photo series shot by Daniella Benedetti, enveloping the vibe of the show behind the curtain call.
Stockists include Pigalle Boutique, Pgl by Pigalle, United Arrow & Sons and Colette
