This Is Not A Suit—Natives, LA by A. Sauvage

What does the word “suit” mean to you? What type of rapport do you have with a suit? When you choose a suit, do you seek formality or do you throw in a personal twist?

These are some of the questions that Adrien Sauvage sets out to answer in his case study: This Is Not A Suit.

In his investigation, Adrien allows the subjects to select from his first collection any suit items, which they wear in the context of their life, whether skateboarding, surfing, playing basketball, and so forth.

Suit “unfriendly” for obvious reasons, Venice Beach of Los Angeles was the location of choice where Adrien conducted his study on the “Natives.”
