Ellesse is a sports apparel company founded in Italy in 1959. It has been owned by British Pentland Group since 1987.
Through the 1970s and 1980s, Ellesse gained a reputation for combining sportswear functionality with street-level fashion styling. It was one of the first sportswear brands to feature their logo prominently on the outside of their garments. During the mid-1980s, French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac worked with Ellesse, an early collaboration between a sportswear company and a fashion designer. The UK casuals adopted the brand in the ’80s as premium sportswear took off across British lad culture.
