A. Sauvage Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign

September 2, 2013

Here’s the campaign imagery from the latest collection by Adrian Sauvage. The range references 1970s graffiti art, neo-expressionism and Pop Art and takes much of its inspiration from the works of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, exploring his ‘heroic figures’, work that featured athletes, prophets, warriors, musicians, kings, and the artist himself – as well as his personal demons.

In revisiting the suit, Sauvage once again continues to blur the line between day and evening wear, with the latter being playfully subverted, replacing traditional fastenings with hook-and-eye closures and removing external pockets for a different look and feel. Casual tailoring pieces feature panels, raglan sleeves and complex internal detail, whilst printed outerwear, deconstructed jackets and a wide-leg trousers come in a colour pallet ranging from white and light grey through to orange, brown and black.

Alongside this reworked tailoring sits an innovative selection of jersey, leather garments and accessories including wide-rimmed Homburg hats designed in collaboration with Christy’s. The collection includes a variety of cloths including the highly textured Casentino wool, water-shrunk Nubuck leather, Shearling and bias cut silk twill panels, as well as clean neoprene, sports jersey and cashmere wool.

And by drawing on his Ghanaian background, Sauvage has interpreted many of these fabrics in a distinctly African vocabulary of overlaying print and texture, which again works to reference the raw and spontaneous style of Basquiat’s artwork.
