Anyone who has had their sports eye on the radar will know that ellesse has made a come back in a big way. Personally being a fan of sportswear and the resurgence of our much loved old school brands, this event is one I am not passing off. On 8th October original style innovator ellesse will be hosting a one-off event at East London’s Number Six, where they’ll be screening a new short film exploring the concept of pioneering spirit from the perspective of four distinct characters from the contemporary cultural landscape. Alongside carefully selected pieces from the ellesse archive there will be a photographic exhibition and live performances from Citizenn and License 2 Trill DJs. This event is open to the public via guest list, come and join us for some Sol beer by signing up here.

About ellesse: ellesse was founded by Leonardo Servadio in Perugia, Italy in 1959. The name ellesse derives from the initials of Servadio’s name, “L.S.” 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 its garments, a bold statement by Leonardo – the pioneering spirit behind the brand that continues to innovate and inspire today.
