“Rock and roll has always been a big part of my world.” says Sachin Ahluwalia when explaining the inspiration behind the Autumn/Winter ‘12 Sachin+Babi runway collection, shown on 14 February 2012 at Cedar Lakes in NYC. “I had been listening to The Doors a lot last fall and started really beginning to notice how women, today more than ever, embody the essence of rock and roll through subtle yet persuasive interpretations of style.” For A/W ’12, Sachin+Babi honed in on that innate confidence which spoke loudly throughout the collection, applauding the tough exterior of the modern woman while showcasing her sensitive femininity through a delicate balance of textures, fabrics and silhouettes.
Sachin+Babi paid extraordinary consideration to the natural shape of a woman, allowing the body to contour the collection. Leather fitted tops with lattice embroidered ponte skirts, rabbit fur trimmed jackets with croc embossed leather skirts, floor length dresses of organza and tulle and helped, create a collection that radiates the power of a woman with a sensitive twist.
I love their looks!
