Iconic Italian sportswear brand, Ellesse, may be best known for their pioneering influence on tennis and skiing fashion, but back in the ’80s and early ‘90s, the brand’s luxe footwear designs and clean logo-centric apparel were coveted items in US cities and beyond — particularly in areas of NYC, where the brand’s high price tags and premium output were a status symbol statement in the street.
While Ellesse has been a European staple for all these years since, the brand now turns its attention back to the States with the return of their classic Venezia silhouette, re-named Vinitziana for its 2017 revival. Executed true to its original form in a timeless blend of suede and mesh, the shoe resurrects the luxurious tennis style of the era in a way that only an Ellesse shoe can.
Joining the Vinitziana ($115) are two Ellesse logo tees ($40 each) as well as a white 6-panel tennis cap ($36).
The full collection will be available in limited quantities 12noon EST this Friday, October 13th, exclusively in-store and online at Packer.
