Italian footwear label ellesse has launched a collaborative capsule of its most classic sneaker designs with five prominent sneaker retailers in Europe. One of the ‘Fab Five’ is colette, in which the Parisian boutique designed the ellesse Assist 1 basketball shoe; colette’s take on the sneaker is that of a royal blue upper with polka-dotted laces and the iconic ellesse typefont printed boldly on the upper as well as on the tongue. Just 150 pairs of each Ellesse ‘Fab Five’ design will be produced, and colette will only sell 50 units! Check out the detailed shots of this notable collaborative effort and let us know what you think.
