Savannah Yarborough earned her BA in Menswear from Central Saint Martins. She was recruited during her studies to be the Head Menswear Designer for Billy Reid, a classic menswear brand in the US. Many years of developing friendships with the best craftsmen in Italy and the US, she turned them into mentors during the beginning of SAVAS.
Since 2015, Savas has focused solely on the leather jacket; the most iconic and powerful garment one person can own. In the tradition of bespoke tailoring, Savas creates one of a kind jackets and coats for discerning men and women from around the world. Each garment is custom designed for each client, materials sourced individually, and requires 2-4 canvas toile fittings before the final garment is created.
In late 2018, Savas: Custom Collection was launched. It is a handmade-to-measure program, with an initial range of 8 styles to select from. The client can customize their garment through choice of stock leathers, Japanese bemberg linings and custom embroidery on the interiors. This program opens at a keener price point and is more efficient, requiring only a single meeting between Yarborough and the client.
The leathers that Savas uses come from specific Italian and Australian tanneries which Yarborough works very closely with to develop only the finest veg tanned calf and kangaroo leathers. Occasionally for a more distressed look, lambskin will be used.
As a menswear trained designer, Savannah works very closely with each client - understanding them, their lifestyles and how they want to feel. Function and form are the integral components that make up a Savas jacket. Yarborough’s design aesthetic is functional and leans toward the classic styling, but with the leather being what creates the true feeling of each jacket.
Each Savas garment is entirely made in the Nashville, Tennessee atelier, which is connected to the underground luxury showroom.
