Ellesse’s main man, the late Leonardo Servadio, once said that his aim with the Italian brand was to create stylish and tailored – but still sporty – sportswear that’s suitable for all different occasions.
He was a man with huge charisma, confidence and good Old Italian charm. His love of mountain sports in the Dolomites, northern Italy (a deep-rooted pride of Perugia and also his birth place) plus his passion for outdoor clothing and fashion in general, turned a vision into something sublime.
Servadio’s vision now lives on through Ellesse Italia – a premium collection of elegant, practical and beautifully made Italian sportswear. Never over worked, Ellesse Italia is the perfect blend of style, flair, form and function.
Over 50 years of sporting passion is delivered in a range of iconic style classics, reworked by incorporating modern fabrication and technology to adapt to the needs of the modern urban dweller. Or your dad. Whatever.
The collection will be available from www.ellesse.co.uk and selected UK stockists from this week.
