Upscaling With Wavey Garms

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Throughout May and June, we worked alongside a series of exciting creative outlets, exploring a diverse array of new skill sets and past times. Our roots in tailoring and iconic status within vintage and contemporary streetwear scenes laid the foundations for a seamless partnership with London based collective, Wavey Garms. The collaboration bridges the gap between past and future; creating a unique, tailored streetwear collection of timeless ellesse apparel.

Archival, brand-defining pieces were sourced for the project from a multitude of eras before being placed into the hands highly skilled seamstress, @Rhiannon_lagden. Each piece has been redefined and expertly up-scaled to produce a one-off summer collection, which is now up for grabs.

Those of you following the @ellesse channel in recent weeks will be up to date with the series of ‘how to’ videos produced by the Wavey Garms Team. These include step-by-step guides to creating key pieces from the collection which includes the ellesse popper skirt, ski suit dress and 90’s Co Ord Set. A men’s tie dye tracksuit, converted bucket hat and technical vest will also be available.

Inspired by our tailoring past, each of the unique Wavey Garms pieces maintain the spirit and design of their original form; expertly transformed to align with contemporary, street tailored trends.

Upscaled and repurposed, the Wavey Garms collection is a fitting example of our commitment to long lasting quality and iconic design redefined for the modern era. Those looking to win a piece from the exclusive collection will need to enter the competition via the @ellesse channel
