Focus on A. Sauvage.
No formal training, no work experiences at Alexander McQueen or Vivienne Westwood or any other important fashion designer, no Fashion University. A background in basketball that could have led him into a great sports career, instead. Despite everything Adrien Victor Sauvage is now, at the age of 30, a talented fashion designer, after working for almost a decade as a stylist, personal shopper and lifestyle consultant, that followed his early retirement from a basketball career.
“His vision was to make luxury and sophistication accessible to men with very little effort in a climate which Sauvage saw as dominated by high-fashion catwalk collections detached from function and utility.” And in my opinion he got the point with his creations: easy-to-wear fine suits, casual clothes with a hint of sophistication, urban style readjusted to fit into a more “classic” way to wear.
You see, this is the kind of talent and passion I appreciate: the one that comes from some kind of “instinct” some lucky people own and, if directed in the right way, make them succeed in their dreams. I love his collections and he deserves any credit.
Ladies and gentlemen, here A. Sauvage.
