Suit by A. Sauvage

Suit by A. Sauvage

This season, Sauvage launches a collaboration with Dr. Martens and a women’s collection titled, “Menswear for Women”. PLANET asked the man behind it all, what it means to DRESS EASY.

How did your collaboration with Dr. Martens come about?
I wear a pair of Docs casually with a suit everyday of the week and it was mentioned in an interview. I believe rumor spread and we started communicating. After an initial meet we both discussed our philosophies where “anti-establishment meets This is Not A Suit” and the collaboration came about.

What inspired your new women’s collection? What fabric did you use? Were there any muses?
I started in fashion as a stylist working closely with women and so it was natural progression to return back to womenswear. But this time offering a House A. Sauvage look, which was under the parameters of Menswear for Women, which gave them confidence, Masculinity and sharper alternative to wearing everyday dresses. The fabrics used are traditional men’s fabrics I.e corduroy, cashmere and wool mohairs. The jackets and shirts button the same way a man does. As for muses, I would have to say check my tumblr page.

Please explain the philosophy behind, This is Not A Suit.
This is Not A Suit is a mode de vie, dressing people who don’t normally wear suits and learning about the internal and external influences that enable individuality and embodies this, “all you can eat” lifestyle.
