Ellesse Explores will be held at Brick Lane's Number Six on 8 October. The night will focus on the screening of a new short film, which explores the concept of pioneering spirit from the perspective of four characters that are prolific in contemporary culture.

Creatives featured include Wavey Garms founder Andres Branco, artist and designer Jimi Crayon, streetwear blogger and stylist JuiceGee and License 2 Trill founder – as well as member of the Piff Gang – Nick Bam.

Alongside the film screening, guests will be able to peruse selected pieces from the Ellesse archive and a photographic exhibition.

Citizenn and License 2 Trill DJs will deliver the music, while drinks will be provided by Sol. Fans of the brand can sign up for guest list entry online.

Ellesse is working with agency Urban Nerds Collective to deliver the Explores event.
