Sachin + Babi Resort 2013: Cute as a Moose.

I first encountered Sachin + Babi on one of my favorite blogs, Sincerely Jules, which you should check out and get obsessed with asap if you aren't already.  Their aesthetic struck me as taking something simple, even classic and modifying it to be uber cool and modern.  Their Fall runway show (read about it here) featured quite standard shapes, nothing terribly unusual, and updated them using color and fabrications that were unexpected. Their Resort 2013 collection holds tight to those values and injects the super cool with the super feminine.  The colors and prints used in the collection are exciting but delicate.  Writing this while sitting in 94 degree heat, I want to jump into these outfits (especially the first pink and white look) because they look like they might do the trick.  Gorgeous clothing and gorgeous styling...never trying too hard, which is key.  And taking cues from the somewhat silly Band of Outsiders usage of boats (here), I seriously appreciate the usage of a badass moose image in the same way.
