The designer duo Sachin & Babi Ahluwalia for their Resort 2018 Collection decided to go with more playful designs compared to their previous work. They have been present on the fashion scene for quite a while, and at the moment they have a lot of things to be proud of. First of all, they are launching a new exclusive collaboration with the luxury department store Saks. The Saks collection is expected this fall and it is going to be a high-end line with evening wear at higher prices. The unique capsule collection will be available in Saks and at the brand’s website by the name “The Ahluwalia by Sachin & Babi”.
The New York-based designers are paying a lot of attention to what their costumers like. They are constantly launching new exclusive pieces that are available online based on the wishes of their buyers. This is one of the unique ways they use to grow and promote their business. Last, but not least, Sachin and Babi are also working on their accessory line. They are adding more beautiful and colorful tassel earrings to their collection.
As the two designers explained, their Resort 2018 Collection is inspired by all of the things that are happening in the United States at the moment.
“There’s a lot happening in our lives right? There’s an upheaval in our economy and politics and as designers, we get influenced.”- Sachin said.
This is so far one of the most diverse collections of the brand. Everyone is used to the luxury and the beautiful embroidery they offer, but this time there are a lot of separates and unexpected pieces. There is a huge variety of fabrics and patterns. You can see a lot of black sequins, lace, jacquard patterns, stripes, and embroidery.
One of the most interesting details in the collection is the pattern that looks like a collage. This pattern was inspired by the artist Cathy Cone, and the way she had combined black and white pictures with different colors. You can see this wonderful pattern on an elegant V-neck dress and a beautiful dark blue coat.
Wide stripes in baby blue, dark blue and white are all over the designs. You can see them on the voluminous luxury dresses and skirts and the more down-to-earth coat and blouse.
The whole collection is a playful mix of elegant evening wear and simple but daring everyday pieces. The popular tassel earrings in strong colors are accessorizing all of the looks.
