The collection makes use of British heritage cloths and scenes from the African savannah, while blurring the line between day and nightwear. The work of artist Nelson Crespo also plays a major role this season, specifically Crespo’s “Eden” series, which combines the real with the surreal by manipulating found images of animals, plants and landscapes.
In addition, Sauvage presents his first tartan for A. Sauvage. Designed in-house, the print combines Sauvage’s signature kente and his ancestral connection with Scotland. This is accentuated by a range of textured cloths, including basket-weave cotton and contemporary micro-pin cord, as well as velvet, silk and linen. All of these are brought together in a color scheme that recalls the Scottish landscape.
