Chennai-based label Brass Tacks’ latest resort collection, inspired by botanical illustrations and using traditional printing techniques on contemporary silhouettes, is now on the racks. Plus, handloom sarees.
Plant Cells, Leaf Veins And The Lalbagh Botanical Garden As Prints On Brass Tacks’ New Collection
Ten Second Takeaway
If you’re looking to infuse natural fabrics and traditional prints into your minimalistic wardrobe, this is where you should start. Brass Tacks combines simple and impeccable tailoring with an Indian aesthetic in fabrics like khadi, cotton and linen for that ideal understated street wear. They have also recently launched a collection of ikat printed, handwoven sarees in subtle patterns.
But our eyes are on the latest collection which is inspired by the archive of botanical illustrations at the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens. Plant cells and leaf veins are interpreted as beautiful simple prints along with more literal, floral prints of hibiscus and rough-bark imagery. And what we really like is that they’ve experimented with these designs on jumpsuits, tops, dresses, pants, and skirts. With warm shades of oranges, reds, and yellows, this collection is just the right amount of summer you need this winter.
