Ten-Second takeaway

Chennai-based Brass Tacks focuses on using Indian textile in contemporary silhouettes {think vintage, comfort and summery}. Their fits cater to all Indian body types, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.

Mix And Match


No, this isn’t a lingerie store that specializes in bras. Nor is it a hardware store that sells brass. White walls, warm yellow lights and racks with all things pretty , you’ll find most of Brass Tacks apparel is made from cotton, linen, khadi, silk and modal. The minimal designs, angular cuts, anti-fits and summery styles are for anybody and everybody. Very simple, yet stylish, Brass Tacks, like its name {and the phrase}, takes you back to basics, to the nitty-gritties and intricate details of dressing that we absolutely adore. Their latest collection is inspired by Boro, which in Japanese means mending patches together, has shirts and dresses in ikat patchwork. Owned by the Chennai-based Anaka Narayanan, the store also houses sand-washed silk dresses that feel like velvet. Boxy crop tops with an interesting ostrich and camel print, formal linen pants in the most perfect grey, printed shirt-dresses in khadi, culottes and skirts in linen, and a dhoti dungaree are among our favourites.

From Petite To Plus


They have sizes from XS to XXL, with variations in the categories too, which you can try in their spacious trial rooms that house huge mirrors lined with zero watt bulbs that give a very vintage vanity van feel. Incidentally, all their clothes are hung on wooden-brass racks, but it has nothing to do with the name of the brand, we checked. So we’re loving their stuff because they’re aesthetically pretty stunning AND they have sizes for all. Keep your credit cards at the ready, they launch on Friday, July 1.


Do check out their all-year-round-sale rack, which is separate from their seasonal sales. You might just be pleasantly surprised and get your favourite dress at a discount!
