THE NEW NATIONAL
LOVI’s new take on the Sri Lankan National dress comes from Asanka de Mel’s (Founder/CEO) desire to establish a visual identity for all Sri Lankans regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender, age or social standing. “If the whole of Sri Lanka is a team, what would our uniform look like?” asks de Mel.
“For any leader in the global economy, how you confidently present yourself is an advantage. The next generation is also watching. With that in mind, I invite our forward-thinkers to lead by example by wearing LOVI’s refresh of the iconic Sri Lankan National.”
