In the past, Ellesse have made their name in professional tennis and skiing, being worn by icons such as Boris Becker, Pat Cash and Guillermo Vilas. The brand was founded in 1959 by Leonardo Servadio, who named the brand after his initials - Elle - Esse.
Starting with Ski wear Servadio sought to create clothing which was stylish and fun, while also functional and practical. At the end of the Sixties, Servadio discovered a performance enhancing fabric which revolutionised the ski wear market.
