Sachin & Babi Fall 2011

Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia are the role models of how love and work can go together.  The husband and wife team specialized in textiles together and created home d├ęcor brand Ankasa.  They then ventured into fashion several seasons ago.  Their expertise in the traditional arts of Indian embroidery had me expecting a more traditional ethnic collection.  I was surprised to find a very sleek, modernist presentation of sportswear that was desirable to any urban woman.  

Simple, wearable silhouettes had delicate embellishments that made the piece special.  There was a sequined placket here, a manipulated georgette collar there... Luxe Mongolian lamb trimmed a bolero and skirt.  The label may not be well known outside of industry circles, but they'll be on the streets of city soon enough.
