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

290716_Brasstacks (1)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} that 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. Their 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}, so their stuff isn’t just aesthetically stunning, but also hosts sizes fit to all.
