ellesse Italia’s summer 2017 collection embraces and celebrates the youthful air and the gritty enthusiasm of a sub-culture that were early advocates of ellesse back in the 80s – one that continues to shape our future today.
The limited-edition Spring collection of premium, contemporary, nu-casual classics, is the perfect blend of sports style, air, form and function.
For modern casuals with a clear sense of identity and an innate sense of street-ready, tribal style. With the increasingly blurred line between athletics clothes and high fashion, the ellesse Italia Spring collection draws on Ellesse’s rich sporting heritage to update iconic pieces of men’s apparel. With the once demonised two-piece tracksuit, seemingly rising from their ashes and enjoying a second lease of life, central to the new collection is a selection of rened mix-and-match, twopiece tracksuits, updated with modern fabrication and styling details.
The slim-fitting, Zo half zip through, funnel neck tracksuit top is styled from a soft handle, poly elastane fabric, smooth on one side, textured on the other.
The Vieri crewneck jersey sweatshirt with set in sleeves, ribbed neckline, hem and cus features cut and sew panels incorporating an updated version of ellesse’s iconic chevron pattern. Staying true to the original aesthetic of the casual subculture by bringing together the old and new, ellesse Italia has introduced some oversized funnel neck track tops incorporating soft-handle stretch tricot and cotton fabrics, inspired by ellesse’s heritage of reinvention and its passion for designing modern classics.
If ellesse Italia’s Summer 2017 collection is inspired by the youthful athleticism and energy of the crowd, it’s very much about delivering a pared back, versatile aesthetic for individuals who want to stand out, in a good way.
