ellesse has teamed up with the iconic brand, Smiley, for a brand-new collaborative collection. This is the second time the two have worked together, and for this collab, they were inspired by both of the company’s presence in rave culture.
The offerings merge ellesse’s signature sportswear roots with Smiley’s counter-culture aesthetics. A dual logo was created by combining the top half of the Smiley face with ellesse’s semi-palla logo, this is then boasted by a range of rave-ready staples. The men’s collection is comprised of T-shirts and swim shorts. Whilst the women’s collection includes cycle shorts and the clounint bodysuit.
To round off the collection we get a unisex tracksuit, a merrazzi windbreaker, as well as an array of bucket hats, baseball caps and side bags built for the all-nighters. In addition to the garment offerings and campaign visuals, ellesse and Smiley enlisted the help of Wavey Garms, who has collaborated with Bluetoof and Simon Franks from the Audio Bullys for a new track.
The ellesse X Smiley collection is currently available from the ellesse Website. You can check out the collection below and be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to never miss a drop date again.
