Drawing inspiration from the colourful and carefree
spirit of island life, COCO (Cotton Collection’s in-house brand) recently
launched its latest designer line – Perine for COCO. This fresh new line
embodies effortless sophistication and was created by international supermodel
Perine Fernando and Cotton Collection’s Managing Director, Niloufer Anverally.
As far as creative collaborations go, Perine for COCO  is the perfect blend of both women’s creative
flair and sense of style. Perine brings with her a wealth of fashion
experience, having worked for some of the world’s most iconic fashion houses
such as Dior, Armani, Yves St. Laurent,
Nina Ricci, Giorgio
Armani and many more.  Niloufer brings
with her an intuitive understanding of Sri Lankan style and an in-depth
knowledge of what appeals to young and dynamic Sri Lankan women.

COCO is inspired by the look and feel of the
beautiful island of Sri Lanka. Islanders are known for their casual flair which
is stylish and elegant but simple at the same time. Blending
vibrant colours with casual design, COCO offers effortlessly chic fashion
options for free-spirited women who are truly fun loving. The COCO brand is all
about being free, having fun and living to the fullest. COCO is about all the
little moments that matter, it’s about smelling the ocean, dancing in the rain,
loving wildly, living passionately, breaking barriers and freeing the soul.
COCO partners with many local and international designers to craft beautiful
collections and has previously collaborated with James Ferreira and KT Brown.
Perine for COCO is a collection of edgy basics
featuring a bevy of deep colours with a twist of drape.
Each piece is carefully crafted to look effortlessly sophisticated and elegant. This collection transfers the latest trends from
the high streets of New York to Sri Lanka. New York is one of the world’s
greatest fashion capitals and Perine for COCO now gives young Sri Lankan women,
the opportunity to own their very own piece of New York inspired fashion. This
is Perine’s second line for Cotton Collection and it features bold and classic
autumn colours such as grey, navy blue, black, white, burgundy and khaki. Warm
earthy shades combined with cooling tones reminiscent of a colourful autumn day
give this collection its distinct look and feel.
Explaining the beauty of the Perine for COCO line
in greater detail, Perine Fernando stated, “This line is an extension of my
personal style and preferences. As a busy mom who is working in New York, one
of the busiest cities in the world, I have very little time so I need pieces of
clothing that are beautiful, elegant and easy to wear. Comfort, a great price
point and a look of effortless sophistication are very important to me and I
have incorporated these into the Perine for COCO line.  I think when trying to be fashionable, you
should never look like you spent hours trying to achieve a particular look, a
sense of effortless adds a beautiful elegance to anything you wear. This
collection is also ideal for busy women because it’s extremely versatile and
many of the pieces can easily be mixed and matched.”
Describing some of her favourite pieces, she
further stated, “There’s a fabulous skirt in the collection with a long slit
right at the front, this really shows off your legs and curves. Another piece I
really love is the black backless top which uses elegant draping to highlight
the back and shoulders. This entire collection highlight’s a woman’s beauty and
it’s comfortable and extremely easy to wear.”
Highlighting what’s special about the line,
Niloufer Anverally, Managing Director of Cotton Collection stated, “Perine for
COCO is a special line because it embodies the latest trends straight from New
York. It’s also incredibly simple, elegant and versatile. This line is ideal
for busy women who don’t have lots of time on their hands, they need to have
access to great ready-to-wear pieces. The colours and style of the pieces in
the collection can easily be dressed down for work and then dressed up for a
cocktail or dinner with great accessories and shoes. Aside from being
incredibly versatile, the pieces in this collection are very comfortable.
Jersey is a wonderful fabric as it really hugs you, it’s very soft and has a
nice looseness to it.”

Cotton Collection and COCO have enjoyed continuous
success in Sri Lanka and as the brands continue to expand, a variety of
exciting projects and collections are now in the pipeline. Perine for COCO is a
limited edition collection that is available at the flagship Cotton Collection
store. Cotton Collection offers a truly
magnificent and complete shopping experience in the heart of Colombo, with
designated departments showcasing clothing, shoes, bags and accessories in
vibrant colours and elegant designs.
