Champion, Adidas, Nike, even Fila are sports brands that are having a moment in fashion right now. I am a big time athleisure fan and have been waiting for the day that sweats in public are acceptable. The one sports brand that is primarily in Europe that I am dying to bring to the US has a very special place in my heart. It is called Ellesse, and it is where my mom got the spelling of my name. But that’s not the only reason why I want to bring this Italian brand to America.
The colors, cuts, styles and effortlessly cool look of Ellesse is the reason I am in love with the brand. It started of as a ski wear company but has since added many types of sportswear. They specialize in sweatshirts, sweatpants, and tee shirts but also have fanny-packs, sliders, and streetwear. You can shop through the site directly, but as a US citizen it cost a pretty penny. Asos carries a selection of the line. I’ve included below a few of my favorite pieces.
