Ellesse clothing is one of the original streetwear brands and now it is back, bigger and better than before. The iconic Italian brand, once primarily sportswear is now the perfect fit for the gymwear as daywear trend. Across the brand you can find everything from jackets to shorts, all branded with the Ellesse ‘half-ball’ logo. Whether you are playing tennis, going skiing, heading to the gym, or simply chilling out at home – this clothing is perfect. Ellesse men’s clothing was founded by Leonardo Servadio in Perugia, Italy, in 1959 when he couldn’t fin the exact skiwear he wanted and so decided to design and manufacture his own. The name was formed from Servadio's initials, L&S, elle-esse. The brand was one of the first to break the boundaries between fashion and sport – Servadio wanted every product to look good but also perform brilliantly. The Ellesee ‘half-ball’ logo combines the tips of a pair of skis with a cross section of a tennis ball and symbolises the brand’s heritage in this sports. You can find the brands instantly recognisable logo stamped across everything from Ellesse t-shirts to Ellesse joggers. It was one of the first sportswear brands to feature their logo prominently on the outside of its garments. Through the 70's and 80's, Ellesse gained a reputation for combining sportswear functionality with street-level fashion styling. The brand is friendly and flirtatious, it doesn’t take anything too seriously – it loves colour and vibrancy and believes in living for the moment.
