Ellesse Info
Ellesse is an Italian sportswear brand that was founded by Leonardo Servadio in 1959, he wanted to create clothing that is recognised for being a casual fashion brand as well as suitable for sport. He started off in the 60s designing stylish ski wear and used his own personal life experiences where his idea of sport is about style, flair and good times spent with friends, with this in mind Leonardo designed superb collections of great looking ski wear with performance enhancing fabrics and became one of the top brands for Ski wear. Ellesse then went on to have clothing collections for tennis players all with the famous logo which derived from the top of a pair of skis and the middle of a tennis ball this unique logo design is on every Ellesse garment.
In the 80’s every sportsman was stepping out in Ellesse clothing this brand was sponsoring many players from tennis to skiers and teams including the Italian football team and Ferrari F1 team. Mid 80’s was when the sports brand was extremely popular as a casual fashion brand  in the UK, any fashion conscious man, women and kid would wear Ellesse the fact that it featured in Vogue helped this designer sportswear range reach out to a new young and trendy audience with its casual glamour. Some of the popular clothing garments were trainers, polo shirts, tracksuits, track top, t shirts & hoodies, every sports shop or fashion store would sell Ellesse clothing and up until the mid 90s was still a huge trend In the UK. In recent years fashion evolved again and what was extremely popular in the 80’s & 90’s took a back step in the casual scene, even though Ellesse was still evolving with the times the fashion industry was punishing and Ellesse seemed to disappear for some time, obviously sports men and women were still wearing this to as sportswear but not so much as a fashion label. The last five years have brought another new trend for men which is called the vintage & retro look and you guessed it Ellesse along with Sergio Tacchini & Fila were given a new lease of life along with all of the trends that were popular back in the day. Track tops and Ellesse polo shirts seem to be a big hit with the casuals and with Ellesse becoming again an iconic casual designer fashion label they are re-launching their brand and has been said to be one of the most requested of come backs, in coming years you will see the return of a great heritage label.
