Ellesse is the type of brand that reminds us of summer days and a sporting past. Established in Italy in 1959, the brand’s popularity rose during the 1970’s where they became popular suppliers of quilted jackets and ski pants. As with many resilient brands Ellesse extended their collection to include sports wear and became a favourite brand of many famous tennis players including; Chris Evert, Boris Becker, Anna Kournikova and Formula 1 driver Alain Prost. Celebrities such as; Roger Moor and Mohammed Ali have also been associated with the Ellesse brand.
In 1994 The Pentland Group, owners of Berghaus and Speedo bought out Ellesse and in 2014 Ellesse became the offical clothing brand of food chain Nandos and produce all of the staff’s uniforms.
