NEW YORK, NY – October 31, 2017 – Sachin & Babi Ahluwalia, known for producing stunning pieces through their eponymous line that has redefined eveningwear, have created a dazzling collection for Macy’s that makes dressing up fun, easy, and empowering this holiday season. With close attention to detail and high fashion artistry, SB by Sachin & Babi goes beyond traditional special-occasion wear with a selection of breathtaking dresses and gowns, stylish statement jackets, and mix-and-match tops, skirts and pants. Fans of the new collection can preview the line on macys.com beginning Nov. 1, prior to the official launch in stores on Nov. 15.
"The collection was inspired by New York City nightlife, and its captivating energy and optimistic spirit,” said Sachin Ahluwalia. Babi Ahluwalia continued, “The collection combines classic evening wear elements with 50 shades of shine, each piece makes a statement offering powerful women the promise of elegance.”
The SB by Sachin & Babi collection is irresistibly radiant, channeling the electrifying energy of a fabulous night on the town. Party-ready dresses, gowns, and separates are rendered in eye-catching and sumptuous fabrics, and the silhouettes are sharp, highlighting the superb tailoring and construction within each garment. Unexpected details are particular highlights of the collection—a gold brocade mini dress features a bustle as well as mesh detailing at the décolletage and a strip of sequins at the hem. A silver skirt, also in brocade, has a subtle animal print along with velvet trim, and has an accompanying blazer. Sequins are employed masterfully and in unique ways, with a bomber jacket boasting striped sequined sleeves, and a lace box top is elevated through a striped sequined body. Sachin & Babi’s famed embroidery skills and techniques run throughout the collection as well, with delicate organza and lace blouses, dresses, and skirts adorned with exquisite blue floral embroidery. SB by Sachin & Babi combines uptown chic with downtown exuberance for a collection that is perfect for all the It Girl’s fetes this holiday season.
