“Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.” Cecil Beaton, British Fashion Designer 1904 – 1980Arrange to visit Aashkii and other attractions in Colombo using our Colombo driving holiday planner.
In few other garments can imaginative vision be better expressed than in a saree.
Rarely can one make a more daring, more vividly different statement, setting oneself miles apart from the play-it-safers, than by donning this explosion of colour and expression.
And there is no better place to immerse yourself in this fabulous, wearable art than at Aashkii, a fashion store dedicated to the finest things in life.
Tucked away in a leafy corner of Cinnamon Gardens, Sri Lanka’s chic-est neighbourhood, we provide a style sanctuary to all who glide through the doors of our exclusive boutique. At Aashkii, we house the refined designs of some of the world’s most dazzling fashion designers, including global icons such as Satya Paul and Ritu Kumar, and inimitable Sri Lankan labels such as 79 and Art In A Style. We insist on the highest standards of quality and refuse to compromise our quality under any circumstances.
Our Satya Paul collection features the finest fabrics, the most vibrant colours, and the most sensual styles for both men and women. Endorsed by Bollywood greats such as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Rekha, Satya Paul’s styles have glittered on catwalks around the world. Taking inspiration from a dizzying range of inspirations, his work spans themes such as the sea, art, and music, elevating him above the mundane concerns of most other designers.
Most recently joining the circle of fabulous designs hosted within the walls of our altar to fashion is Indian fashion’s first lady, Ritu Kumar. Embodying the sultry mystery of the East in her designs, she creates stunning, high fashion pieces for India’s giltterati and now, for you. Breeze through a collection of exuberant Ritu Kumar dresses and blouses and select your own style statement.
Only For the Fashion-Forward
Aashkii prides itself on finding the perfect expressive ethnic ensemble for any customer that walks through our doors, including our fashion-forward male clientele, who seek materials suited for our climate and who incline to designs that embody the understated South Asian style.
The store’s very own ‘Aashkii’ brand is based on the utility and easy elegance of ethnic fashion, showcasing beautiful kurtas, sarees and tunics carefully crafted from a range of local textures and materials – handlooms, silk and pure cotton.
For those who seek to surround themselves with this ethnic elegance there are a range of homeware items which reflect the same class and charisma that the shop seeks to provide. Our Eastern-inspired bed linen, curtains, lamps and dhurries fit easily into the Sri Lankan way of living.
Visit Aashkii - Ethnic elegance at its best. Visit us now at No. 1 Maitland Crescent, Colombo 7.
