KK Collection announces the opening of their boutique store, located at 50 Pedlar Street, Galle Fort on 24th December 2020. The boutique store aims to offer local artists an avenue by which to promote their hand-crafted furniture, paintings and more; whilst providing locals access to exclusive pieces by international designers.
The 9,000 sqft boutique store showcases KK Collection’s fashion apparel and accessories; housing elite, up-market retail names such as Issey Miyake dresses and coats; an exclusive collection of cruise-wear created by the brand’s in-house team of designers and tailors.
Speaking with George Cooper, Founder/ Director, KK Collection, commented “our new boutique store is located inside the iconic Hayleys Building, which we have renovated, restoring the property to former glory. The boutique store hopes to fill a gap in the market for quality products such as; homeware and fashion items, which were previously only readily available in places such as Colombo. This addition in Galle aims to cater to tourists and Sri Lankans in the Southern locale”.
The store also houses an extensive range of homeware products, (most of which) are manufactured in Sri Lanka; a large collection of paintings by local Sri Lankan artists; a curated collection of furniture by Only & Co – bespoke creations, handcrafted in Sri Lanka.
