Brass Tacks presents their Summer 2017 Collection at Cache Gallery, Bandra
Founded in 2007 Brass Tacks is a fashion label committed to working closely with hand-crafted, sustainable textiles and translating them into modern silhouettes for an urban audience. The Summer 2017 line is made up entirely from handloom cotton textiles, largely khadi cotton in natural dyes. “Khadi has a beautiful texture that gives it depth, and it has a personality that is soft and yielding, yet sturdy and dependable”, says the designer, Anaka Narayanan, while explaining why this textile appeals to her. The design team worked with closely with an artisan development organization in Andhra and Telangana to create the textiles for the collection. The colour palette is mostly off-white (or Kora, the word for unbleached cotton) with hints of indigo, black and grey. There are a few pieces in rich indigo and madder-red as well.
The silhouettes in this collection are airy, with a relaxed, resort vibe to them. There are loose jumpsuits, dhoti-inspired pants, wrap-waist slacks, boxy tunics and dresses, and a Kashmiri Phiran- inspired dress that is boxy, flattering and stylish. This collection marks a departure from Brass Tacks’ typical aesthetic of fitted silhouettes. The prices in this collection range from INR 1500 – 5000.
