Pyer Moss Couture Fall 2021 “Wat U Iz” by Kerby Jean-Raymond, the creative directors first runway show in almost two years.

Pigalle Summer 2021 “Freedom Fields” by Stephane Ashpool

Pigalle Summer 2021 “Freedom Fields” by Stephane Ashpool

Purple TV presents “Freedom Fields,” an ode to Movement & Music for the Pigalle Summer 2021 collection by founder Stéphane Ashpool. For Ashpool, biking is a fundamental part of daily life, an idea he wanted to communicate through the collection, full of flashy silk colors and leather patchworks made in Paris.

“The bike has a unifying power – it allows people to move freely: when they want and wherever they want. It makes even more sense in cities like Paris where everything is very connected.” – Stéphane Ashpool.

All items will be available in Pigalle’s Parisian boutiques.
