Nike Sportswear has partnered with Pigalle, also known as the Pain O Chokolat crew, to create the PPP collection, a lineup of apparel and footwear that represents an authentic lifestyle of basketball. In the mix are reworks of the iconic Nike Air Force 1 Hi and Lo, two tanks, two pairs of shorts, a basketball, and a hat. The pieces combine sport heritage and style, with details specific to the crew’s taste and direction. Founding member of the PPP crew, Stéphane Ashpool, explains, “We cut the bottom of the short for a handmade old-school look. These pieces are made to be comfy. It’s based on what we wear.” Look for special tie-dye treatments to the cotton shorts and tanks create fades and deliberate distressing that complement the shoes — perfect imperfections that bring different eras of the game together. A two-toned black-and-white basketball is a visual play on the senses, alternating colors as its spins in the air during play.
The Nike x PPP Collection will be available starting April 26th through select Nike retail destinations and Nike retail partner locations globally.
