After a moment of recalibration, Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have found sure footing again. Their resort 2022 collection is a rehash of their bestselling silhouettes in a swath of new materials and colors. Plunge front tiered minis and midis appear in shimmering poly faille, material that glistens but never wrinkles. They’ve cut similar sweet styles in denim while expanding their knitwear offering to include novelty patterns and crystal trimming.
From their Garment District studio, the Ahluwalias are up front with the fact that dresses are flying off their e-comm and retailers are coming back to re-up orders. That bodes well for style their re-emergence business, but the designers are wise to not rest on their laurels. With a younger design staff working in their studio, the brand is gently introducing new ideas, like sexy open backs and more youthful combinations of colors.
