Deneth / Vol.1

Deneth is a clothing brand from Kurunegala, Sri Lanka, gone global.

Behind Denth is Deneth Piumakshi and her crew, doing wonders with Cheetta cloths, a widely used yet underestimated material in the local market, overlooked often as the epitome of bad taste. Deneth clothes have been astute enough to use flat and bright colours as well as flowery motifs of Cheetta, the hallmark of these cloths, in a whole new context for the first time: designerwear inspired by both Eastern and Western masters. This original mix of naïve art motifs and Yves-Saint-Laurent-like* sophistication, has already seduced not only the catwalks in Sri Lanka’s capital, but also in Paris, Spain, New Delhi…

* The 2013 collection ‘Kurunegala Rive-Gauche’ is inspired by the works of the great French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
