The neighborhood of Pigalle in Paris has a lived in feel, boasting strip bars, drapery shops, clubs, bars and the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur presides over the area on top of the hill. It has housed allパリのピガール周辺は生活感に溢れ、エロス、生地屋、クラブやバーが混在し、丘の上にはサクレクール寺院が屹立する刺激的なエリアだ。この坂の多いエリアを練り歩けば、いくつもの予期せぬ発見をすることができる。この場所で生まれたステファン・アシュプールによって2008年にオープンされた「ピガール」。店を訪れると、この界隈の雰囲気がゾクゾクと伝わってくる!

, from the sculptor whom the area is named after, to Toulouese-Loutrec and Picasso and is home to the famous Moulin Rouge. When you walk around this up and down hilly area you will find a lot of surprises on the street. Stéphane Ashpool a local, born and raised in the area, opened the boutique “Pigalle” in 2008, the store represents the exciting vibe of its streets.

Patrons can mix and match street brands with mode brands from all over the world, Rick Owens (US born Paris based designer), Phenomenon (Japan), Wood Wood (Netherlands), Libertine-Libertine (Denmark) are just a few of Pigalle’s stocked labels. The ladies selection – located at the end of the hallway – also stocks Rick Owens and some Paris based designers like Marc Le Bien, Sharon Wauchob.

The most featured collection in the store is their own original line “Pigalle”, locally made clothes with a rude, bad boy taste. Their cotton shirts and pants have slightly oversized silhouettes with tribal stitch work on the sides. Pigalle’s hat, which is Stephane’s favorite item he says “has a fabric kind to the skin and a minimal design suitable for a party, date… anytime regardless of the situation”. This cap is displayed alongside hats and scarfs from Uzbekistan, a combination that tells us how Pigalle, is not just an ordinary select shop.

And combining with others seems to be a passion for Stephane. While I was covering the story I found Stephane and Charaf Tajer – the owner of Le Pompon a speakeasy bar in the area – have known each other for long time, form a unit called Pain O ChoKolat with their crew. They always believe in the process of creating something new when they mix freely and interact like family. Sometimes Stephane DJ`s in Le Pompon and Pain O Chokolat help Pigalle at other times – Pain O ChoKolat organized an event when Pigalle came to Japan in summer 2011. Pigalle apparel line also plans to collaborate in the same way in the future we can’t take our eyes off what they do next.
