Sachin + Babi – Spring Summer 2012

70’s disco just got seriously updated.

Silk and leather blouse

Oatmeal, gold, tangerine and canary yellows
Tangerine was used for jolts of colour throughout. These shorts would be killer with a navy blouse and flats
Navy & charcoal silk and lurex maxi dress with a top that billows and a peek a boo slit back
Classic separates updated in fabrics normally associated with after dark
Monochrome T-shirt blouse with white leather paillettes

The always classic white shirt

Sleeveless black and white dress with perforated leather skirt.  While taking this picture, I imagined wearing this with pointy flats and a messy top knot to show off the row of buttons that ran down the back
To be honest I don’t know a lot about Sachin & Babi.  I had paused to view their collections on sites like Shopbop but that was about it.  With zero purchase history and a self confessed ‘let’s see what their clothes are like in real life’ curiosity, I accepted their invitation to view their S/S 2012 collection.
Let’s put it this way.  That gold lurex maxi in pic 1 greeted me at their entrance.  You lot already know how about feel about maxis…..
The feel in the room was 70’s glam revisted in textures, neon flashes & lurex got upgraded to make it seductive (I’d take all of pic 7 & 8 – hangers included since I’ve run out of those). 
The mixing of night fabrics into day and vice versa is what I’m all about. I don’t need to tell you how I feel about wearing glitz during the day
I did touch that gold maxi on the way out…

    As I’m still new to blogosphere, I just recently discovered your blog and love it. New York is so close to my heart!
    I know Sachin+Babi long time, as I used to work right next door to their office and stopped by often for sample sales!!
    The Indian owners are super nice people and I’m fascinated with their fabric manipulation abilities, especially on leather!

    I am with you on that Gold Maxie dress how gorgeous is that thing. I may have to give this designer a second look the next time I come across it on shopbop as well.

    Wow. Love the blouse in the third picture, absolutely gorgeous! I checked out the collection online ( after reading this post and I noticed many a retro-futuristic vibe in there, which is great! You should definitely go for that gold dress…
