Ellesse was first founded in 1959 by Leonardo ‘Mantis’ Servadio in Umbria, Italy. The brand name stems from its founders’ own initials ‘LS’ and originally specialised in outdoors wear for sports (mainly tennis) and skiing. During the 70’s, Ellesse gained more recognition for its skiing fashion, especially for pieces such as ski pants and quilted jackets. As Servadio developed his skills in creating functional sportswear fashion, he became a designer which transformed the initial concept of practical clothing. By fusing the two styles of sportswear and tailoring to his design aesthetic, Servadio began to create his own preferred style which would kickstart the Ellesse legacy. This merge of styles is even more apparent today with the rise of the streetwear movement, still making Ellesse one of the most relevant brands of the industry after over six decades. Many of our trusted retailers at The Hoxton Trend stock Ellesse, including JD Sports and ASOS. Not only is the brand bang on trend with the current season, it is also extremely affordable to suit any kind of budget.
