The Perry Ellis® brand came into being in the 1970s. Perry Ellis created his first major women’s collection in 1975 under the ‘Portfolio’ label; it went on to become a huge success. It was the first brand that introduced separates into a sportswear collection. Adapting to the changing styles and preferences of the time, Perry Ellis created a new definition of fashion by thinking a step ahead and maximizing the wardrobe spend, focusing on the concept of mixing and matching suits, blazers, vests, and pants.

In 1980, Perry Ellis applied his unique design approach to menswear, too. He was the first designer to create a truly casual clothing line for men that still had a business and fashion edge to it, long before the trend of casual Fridays or business-casual became popular. Thirty years later, Perry Ellis and menswear is synonymous.


The lines of Perry Ellis feature slim fits in 100% cotton and blends of cotton, polyester and rayon.

These casual, fashionable clothing styles are wrapped in an amazing assortment of clean, simple and yet modern silhouettes, best described as “nearly instant classics of design”.

The label is a worldwide fashion force, a design house consistently adding new collections and accessories of fine quality for women and men who like clean, simple lines. His signature: masculine silhouettes for men, gracefully adapted lines for women.
