Sachin + Babi Fall 2012: Leather Love

On Valentine’s Day, the husband-and-wife duo behind Sachin + Babi held their first ever runway show during fashion week. The 2 1/2 year old label has shown presentations in the past but this year they decided to do things a little differently. Although this was my first Sachin + Babi experience, I’m glad it was shown in runway form because the clothes moved beautifully and deserved to be seen on models in motion.

The key material shown throughout this collection was leather. In a variety of colors, textures and silhouettes Sachin + Babi is all about leather for Fall 2012. The coolest part about this is that they wanted to show the softer side, which they did by pairing it with other materials such as chiffon. The contemporary label also expanded into more gowns, which would be killer on the red carpet with those magnificent slits.

One of my favorite things a designer can do is play with texture, which is exactly what Sachin + Babi did this season. Most looks were shown in black, speckled grey, deep red, teal and purple yet the way they were styled and constructed made them wearable and interesting at the same time.
