  • “Some biographies are meant to be remembered … His was never meant to be written …”

    Kirthi 05

    Kirthi Sri Karunaratne (28 Nov 1930 – 01 Nov 2015) Telephone calls and text messages kept criss-crossing Colombo from around 7.30 last Sunday morning as news broke of the demise of the veteran and legendary couturier Kirthi Sri Karunaratne. The news then rapidly spread to Face Book as friends, fans, clients and colleagues from around the world connected with each other in expressions of grief and sorrow. Had he been alive, Kirthi would have been 85 years at the end of this month on Saturday 28th November. With his demise, yet another era in Sri Lanka’s fashion industry comes to a close. Once on a television talk show with me, I remember him proudly recalling his debut into fashion designing as a teenaged Ananda College schoolboy, and, the long and colourful journey thereon. This was journey which took him to Rome where he worked with designer Emilio Schubert, to London

  • Enlightening time, LVCEA is the new star of the Bvlgari Watches Collection

    LVCEA 02

    Bvlgari captures the power of luminosity in LVCEA, a new timepiece for women. Tribute to the sundial, LVCEA winds history with modernity, clasping function to design. A rounded case, its lithe foundation, and a spectrum of shades and styles make LVCEA as luminously feminine as it is unmistakable. Since the dawn of humankind, light has been the marker of time. To count the passage of hours, primeval man invented the sundial. Timekeeping instruments, such as the solar quadrants that formed the sundial, were first unearthed in Ancient Egypt, later in Ancient Greece and Rome. The sundial is forever wound with astronomy and the calendar, and this original form of timekeeping became indispensable – the predecessor to today’s precision.
