Although just barely two years old and making its debut in Mercedes Benz Fashion week only yesterday, Sachin +Babi, the eponymous label of husband and wife duo Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia has already made quite the impression on the fashion elite.

According to Women's Wear Daily, yesterday Sachin +Babi "made a name for themselves by bringing a global aesthetic to the contemporary market".

While Sachin + Babi ready-to-wear is in its infancy, albeit a precocious one, Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia have been in the fashion industry for more than a decade.

The Bombay and New Delhi natives who are the children of artisans, drapers and designers met in New York City while attending FIT and are the creators of the Ankasa home brand. In addition, they're "responsible for much of the couture hand embroideries and unique textiles utilized by some of the industry's most esteemed fashion houses." (Read: Oscar de la Renta and Valentino)

I came to know the Sachin + Babi brand because one of my favorite pieces of clothing is from the label's early collections. My gray peplum jacket is to die for. And, while I'd like to take some credit and think that I have some intuition for these things, I have to acknowledge that Sachin + Babi are about to blow whether I realize that or not.

Their style is best described as classic-meets-contemporary, but they describe it as eclectic and elan. I love it because it's both super feminine and rock and roll.
