'A Different Kind of Ellesse'
Ellesse Penguin x 80s Casuals.
Ellesse was founded in 1959 in Perugia Italy by Leonardo Servadio. The name Ellesse deriving from his initials 'LS'. The first ever branding used by the company, until the mid 1970s Palla logo, was a Penguin (see the 80s Casuals book for pics). First seen in 1967 the Penguin referenced Leonardo's two pet Penguins which often accompanied him on Ski trips. A rubber Penguin logo would be stitched onto Ellesse's revolutionary Ski Pants.
Our Collaboration uses that branding to stand out from the crowd. Last year we built up a great friendship with the guys at the iconic Italian Sportswear brand and this year we continue that friendship with some new and exciting products inspired by our T-Shirt 'Travel' range including new Winter Jackets designed by ourselves in collaboration with Ellesse.
There will be new T-Shirts for Summer with a Capsule Winter Clothing Collection to follow.
More details soon.
