ellesse makes a return to golf
New exclusive men’s and women’s ranges
The range will also be worn on Tour by Mel Reid as she returns to the fairways later this month.
For its comeback launch, the brand has focused on using the core ellesse colours of Navy, Red, White, and Black. Every piece in the range has been given reflective detailing, some in the print application and others in the fabric themselves. Other influences from the main ellesse range include the use of a new 3D TPU badge that brings a heritage feel from a contemporary application.
Key pieces to look out for in clothing include the men’s Vesuvi Polo (RRP £44.99) which incorporates the ellesse cut and sew DNA, the Taroni jacket (RRP £69.99) which has tonal navy panelling with reflective print details and finally the Gamay ladies jacket (RRP £69.99) which is a fully reflective standout piece. All the pieces in the range excluding the Taroni and Gamay jackets have UPF 50 protection, anti-bacterial properties and moisture wicking which make them ideal for golf.
As well as clothing ellesse is bringing footwear to the collection. There is a spiked outsole shoe “Arrow”, and a spikeless outsole shoe “Shore” both of which retail at £69.99. A heel-mounted, rubber-moulded semi-palla links back to the heritage of the brand’s footwear range which is also apparent in the performance elements of the design. The uppers of both styles are waterproof, and the shoes feature a memory foam in-sock for supreme comfort and a solid stable foundation.
