Adrien Sauvage – Creative Director

Adrien Victor Sauvage (born 30 May 1983) is a British fashion designer, director and photographer of Ghanaian descent.

Sauvage’s first collection, ‘This Is Not A Suit’ (Collection 000-1 to 000–11), featured a capsule collection of contemporary tailoring. Each of the eleven pieces was based on tailoring archetypes, adapted to create an A. Sauvage signature silhouette. This adhered to the confines of traditional tailoring but slimmed and simplified shapes while gently subverting subtle elements such as cut, fabric and even fastenings. The collection received critical acclaim with Sauvage being described as “an unusual multi-talent” and the Observer declaring, “’this is not a suit,’ it’s a way of life”.

With these new classics established, subsequent A. Sauvage collections have been more playful, exploring new references and product groups and incorporating different materials and techniques. 2012 saw the launch of the A. Sauvage ‘Menswear for Women’ line, which has seasonally appropriated menswear models and adapted them for the female body.

Sauvage’s designs are heavily influenced by his Ghanaian background. A Ghanaian woven silk Kente was introduced in Autumn/Winter 2012, for example, while Sauvage’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection features an Asafo print based upon the flags of the Ghanaian Fante people, a local fishing community on the Cape Coast.
