Since 1985, Simon & Elizabeth Southwood have been growing a swimwear culture known simply as Sauvage. Elizabeth was born to a seamstress and has never looked back at her passion for apparel design. She and her boyfriend at the time, Simon Southwood, had a friend who needed some swim trunks for an upcoming vacation. Elizabeth offered to make him a swimsuit solely for the joy of making it. However he insisted on purchasing it. In that moment Simon had an epiphany, seeing a business opportunity to showcase Elizabeth's inspirations, and a men's swimwear line was born. Selling a small new men's line in Southern California quickly blossomed into a women's line being added to the mix, and both being sold worldwide. A family business since its inception, Sauvage is still headed by Simon & Elizabeth who continue to work tirelessly. Their son has grown into the business, sharing his passion for apparel, graphic design, and pride in Sauvage swimwear.
High quality standards and attention to detail make the Sauvage collections stand apart. Luxe-Sauvage is a resort style collection, unique prints featuring luxury cover-ups. Sauvage is fashion forward, sexy & always glamorous, always on trend, and features gorgeous Swarovski crystals - the best in the world. The Men's collection features European style swim trunks and most modern board shorts.
Every facet of the product development is handled at the Sauvage Headquarters in San Diego, CA. The process starts with an inspiration, goes through design, testing, and manufacturing here in their facility. Finished goods are then marketed, sold, and shipped under the same roof. Over time, Sauvage has found the only way to produce a product with integrity is to handle the entire process, setting them apart in this day and age.
