Recently I caught up with Stephane Ashpool from Pigalle and PainOchoKolat, who gives his account about Paris and what he is looking forward to this Fall. Stephane is leading the way of the “new generation”, not only in Paris but around the world, having influenced many with the collective PainOchoKolat and since starting his own store and label Pigalle we can expect many more things from this talented individual.
