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.
Constructed from subcontinent fabrics, the Ceylon Shirt is a cotton short sleeve shirt with a revere collar. Features include flat felled seam construction, mock placket sleeve finish and natural calico reinforcement at facing and collar, with two large patch pockets at the base. Hand stamped at inside collar documenting the article code, production year and size.
