Minimalistic Elegance


Fashion is one of the most changing aspects of the world. It never stays the same, it keeps on evolving further. Keeping up with these changes, our fashion taste too evolves in accordance with time and trends. Everyone wants to look trendy as well as feel comfortable in whatever they wear.

Think of ethnic wear, and the first natural association is extra high-shine embellishments, dramatic silhouettes and an overall ‘more is more’ aesthetic. But, look beyond the mainstream, and you’ll discover a growing tribe of labels that have extended their pared-down sensibility and sustainable mindset to traditional silhouettes.

Embedding the ‘Indian Contemporary’ trend in the fashion world, Bollywood Boutique (BB) is a brand that’s synonymous with ethnic wear. Be it a lehenga, saree, shalwar or even a kurthi – you name it, they have it all. Having been around for eight years, they have successfully been able to understand the clientele’s needs whilst still being relevant to the current fashion trends. BB brings that desi touch to your wardrobe with their ethnic Indian prints and fabric. They specialise in everyday fashion and all types of occasion wear.

 They are located at Havelock Road, Colombo 5 and have grown to become a well-known name in the Sri Lankan household. Their collection comes in a variety of top-quality fabrics with a perfect fusion of colours, and intricate embroidery and has a generous sprinkle of contemporary design elements. BB has a diverse range of shalwar sets, ready-made, and semi-stitch for women in a variety of colours and combinations. You can through the label’s highly-detailed dresses, tailored trousers, asymmetrical skirts, printed blouses, playsuits and much more.

The 2022 Ramazan Collection drew inspiration from the return to normalcy due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “This season, display your most beautiful and confident self with these effortlessly sophisticated designs that add just the perfect touch of grace and individuality to your look,” the team at BB stated describing the collection.

These pieces can be worn at any time of the day – for work, brunch, high tea, evening wear or by the pool; basically everywhere. This Ramazan collection is rooted in a minimalist aesthetic and punctuated with textured details. Think silk dresses with dart details, constructed evening jackets with wire embroidery and coat dresses with statement sleeves. You can mix your wardrobe basics with high-end elements from the label to re-wear over multiple seasons. Featuring soft pastel colours and light embellishments, the collection is perfect to kick-start the festive season.
