Ceylon III - ARALY

A collaborative project between Tuhirangi Blair & KAUKAU.

 

Lucky Dip & KAUKAU present the Ceylon shirt's third edition, titled 'Araly'

With 'Araly', KAUKAU co-owner Prakashan has provided further context with his continued expression of personal identity as a Sri Lankan New Zealander. Sri Lankan dress has always been a common and unique identifier as a migrant growing up in Aotearoa, and one not often celebrated. This collaboration with Lucky Dip allowed Prakashan to reimagine subcontinent fabrics as shirting linked to his heritage, to form a recollection of memories and moments that are undeniably Sri Lankan.

Founder and maker Tuhirangi Blair was born and studied fashion design at the Auckland University of Technology in Aotearoa New Zealand. The collection consists of five silhouettes across three sizes, adhering to only working with unique fabrics to create one-of-one garments. Each style has been designed with a range of obvious and not so obvious detailing in mind.
