Pigalle 2012 Fall/Winter “New Eve” Collection

Pigalle‘s releases this video for their 2012  Fall/Winter “New Eve” collection which is designed by  Stephane Ashpool.  The French label strikes an ode to a by-gone era with inspiration drawn from the Jazz Age of Gatsby with a European flair that suggested “An American in Paris.” It was an age of “intense virility, elegance and a nonchalantly assumed femininity,” according to Pigalle, and this was displayed with a procession of flamboyant, bohemian clothing in the sultry atmosphere of a speakeasy. Look for the Pigalle’s “New Eve” collection to hit stockists soon.

 

Pigalle Paris & the ‘Nouvelle Eve’ collection pays nostalgic homage to a regretted bye-gone age.
An age of intense virility, elegance and a nonchalantly assumed femininity.

The collection made by Stephane Ashpool celebrates the man of that time. The smart dandy who sees his suit as his accomplice; the charming Gatsby with his pronounced taste for showing off his appearance, with his preference for confidential private clubs and speakeasys..

These atmospheres inspired this collection. Their colors and foremost their materials.
From felt hats in exclusive hare felt to velvets: everything is about touch and seduction.

New Eve is a sensual collection, difficult to define, but which is very pleasurable to experience.

SPKSMEN Fall Holiday 2012 Lookbook

SPKSMEN releases a few images from the latest installment of its Fall Holiday 2012 collection. This time around the sports/hip-hop influenced brand executes a phenomenal capsule composed of snapbacks, knits, fleece & tees. The idea behind SPKSMEN (spokesmen) is to always push the limits and “Never Settle” for anything less than greatness by communicating your craft and passion amongst your peers.

“This collection might mean the most to me so far. The design process was during a major transition in my life, being laid off from my day job and forcing me to make this thing work. A lot of hours spent in the design studio. I pretty much cut off the outside world and disciplined myself to create what meant the most to me at this period. I went back to the basics and highlighted some older musical influences that speak volumes till this day. The aesthetic remains consistent. Subtle and understated designs with a powerful underlying story behind each piece.”  – Jon (owner/creative director)

Standout pieces from Fall Holiday are a series of wool snapback hats offered in four colorways produced by Starter. Another favorite is the “High Stakes” crewneck fleece which carries some very notable detailing with an old school varsity style, and the classic collegiate influenced “CREAM” patch on the sleeve. Matching CREAM knit beanie hats are available in 3 colorways as well.

SPKSMEN Fall Holiday ’12 collection is now available at both: Karmaloop.com & Spksmen.com
