Savastano + Babi, a brand named after the couple who created it, debuted on the runways not all that long ago with the Fall/Winter 2012 stagione. Tuttavia, they have both been part of the fashion industry for over a decade and are known specifically for their use of handcrafted details and unique textures. Oscar de la Renta, Giorgio Armani and Carolina Herrera are just a few of the names they’ve worked for in that vein before launching their own collections. Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba, Demi Moore, Drew Barrymore, and Scarlet Johansson are some of the celebrities who have worn their fashions.
Naturalmente, what we care about here on this blog is the crochet, so let’s get to it:
Savastano + Babi Crochet Dress with Contrasting Silk Back via Lyst
Savastano + Babi crochet and leather top

Sachi + Babi Lucia Print Dress; this one is advertised as having a crochet hem and although it doesn’t look like true crochet to me there is definitely inspiration from the craft
