We’re a female-founded, two-woman show that began when we lost our jobs during the pandemic and decided to take a chance on an entrepreneurial calling. Stade – a reference to the origin of the word stadium and the first race in the ancient Greek games – is a nod to our design ethos of referencing the past while looking toward the future.
The idea for Stade Sport started with a thrifted vintage tennis dress– which is now our best-selling Leisure Dress. We’re an activewear brand at our core, but our take on the category was inspired by the elegant unfussiness of 1960s leisurewear - you know, those looks that took you from the clay court to a postgame martini without skipping a beat.
Our designs blend the timeless style of vintage athletics with the performance attributes of modern activewear, burgeoning a new category of sportswear that’s stylish enough for all-day wear, but powerful enough for high-impact activity.
Welcome to Stade Sport – Apparel you can play in.
