Sachin + Babi

YOUTHFUL FLIRT
New York: Design duo Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have identified their core customer after just three seasons. Their girl is feminine but not girly, and body-conscious without being overtly sexy. To this end, the designers concentrated on a balanced silhouette that was boxy on top while slim on the bottom. Their oversized jackets (including a cheeky Chanel-esque tweed) added uber-cool insolence to high-waisted skirts, shorts and straight-cut pants. Almost every look incorporated leather, from a heavy gathered skirt to the lightest of perforated lambskin blouses. The long-skirted jersey and Lurex evening looks were calling out to Hollywood’s new generation of tween actresses. —Shine Dharan
