Passionate about sports apparel since its birth in 1959, Ellesse was pioneering in combining sportswear functionality with on trend high street fashion. Over 50 years later and with a proud list of celebrity endorsements to rival any brand around, Ellesse is still as strong, vibrant, friendly and flirtatious as the day of its birth. Its heritage oozes cool, catering to both modern trends and our vintage fashion craving which can only come from a brand that’s basked in a pool of popularity across five decades in fashion..
The Ellesse logo began as a simple pair of initials. Leonardo Servadio’s L&S mark was a guarantee of quality and style. But as the brand grew, so the logo changed. First the brand name ellesse was created from the letters L&S. Later the half ball logo was introduced combining the tips of a pair of skis with the cross section of a tennis ball, to symbolise the brands heritage in these sports.
The logo has now evolved and exists as shorthand for the ellesse tradition of innovation in performance and style,. It is the signature of one of the most recognised sport lifestyle brands in the world.
