A peak of a modern day 80’s resurgence, ellesse has made a comeback with a collaborative collection from their 80’s range of Casual wear.
Working on collaborations, sharing stories with a like-minded community and moving forward to design casual-inspired clothing.
Dave Hewitson and Jay Montessori, founders of the popular stockist and design business, 80’s Casuals were honoured when being asked by ellesse to work on a collaboration, the duo are long-time fans of the popular sports brand and looked into the finest details to make this collaboration a milestone for the future. They carefully selected the best flagship pieces from the historic collection, picking the finest fabrics and taking attention to detail with premium packaging including history of the brand. The little subtle touches often make an incredible product, this is certainly the case here.
Ellesse Heritage is aimed at a younger, more fashion conscious consumer. The heritage consumers are trendsetters, not followers. For Heritage two additional attributes are added to the ellesse DNA– Bold and Authentic. The clothing is inspired by archive ellesse pieces that tell a story. Modern trends are fused with timeless ellesse pieces, creating the brands’ future. The ellesse heritage retail identity is a modern interpretation of ellesse’s sporting history and classic style. The combination of bold colour, contemporary materials and historical props creates an energetic retail experience.
