Since 1959, ellesse has been defined by spirit and style. It began when an Italian tailor, Leonardo Servadio, fused a passion for skiing and tennis with a flair for couture. The result was the first ever tenniswear to look as good as it felt, and to fit as well as it performed. A concept was born: exclusive, performance-led sportswear, tailored to precision and genuine Italian flair.
