British fashion designer Adrien Sauvage has moved his atelier from London to Los Angeles and readies sportswear collection.

In 2010, Adrien Sauvage, established his men’s wear label A. Sauvage in London. This summer, he’s opening up a studio in Beverly Hills.

Basically I came here for Christmas holiday and I never went back,” said Sauvage, who said Robert Downey Jr. was among the first of his clients to encourage the move.

Sauvage launched his line of contemporary suiting in Harrods, then opened his own shop on Bond Street, and today his made-to-measure pieces are also available online. The designer, who  still travels back to London every eight weeks for his made-to-measure clients says the California lifestyle has inspired a new idea — a sportswear line due out in January.

I surveyed the land of T-shirts. I thought two or three years ago the whole sportswear thing was going to go in the bin, but it’s still here. It’s even tweaked my own style a bit. My sportswear line is going to have a casual elegance, the whole seven days a week wardrobe. It’s perfect for getting on or off a plane,” he said. He is still exploring wholesale partners for the line.

Some of Sauvage NBA clients includes Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Blake Griffin. “There are no other sports where men have taken fashion like these guys have,” he said. “Now all the brands fly them to Paris in the off-season.”

I learned to sketch by eye, infusing my own style into something classic. I also started taking people’s portraits and magazines like Dazed and i-D started using my photos, not knowing I was also a designer,” he said.
