Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia’s strong history with textiles informs both their signature and Noir collections for Sachin & Babi. The designers incorporated an array of industrial-like mesh, for both shape and visual appeal, using it to cinch the waistlines of felted wool sheaths. Padded jackets, quilted short skirts, sequined varsity jackets and attached fringes for a see-through effect continued the surface interest and played a role in the duo’s “whimsical and fun” approach to their signature looks.

But it was the Noir collection, with its simpler, more sophisticated shapes — full, tea-length dresses and long skirts — with colorful embroidery on black mesh that provided the label with most of its charm.
