FASHION SHOOT: Catch of the day

We head to Tangalle on Sri Lanka’s sun-baked south coast, taking in land and sea in inspired looks that stand out at work and play

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. ~Mark Twain

The Pearl of the Indian Ocean. A gleaming beacon of hope that shines brightly through the ravages of time, whether in the form of natural disasters, civil war or economic strife: Sri Lanka is often effusively praised by travellers as a paradise, a slice of Eden reclaimed. 

One of the most striking features of Sri Lanka’s natural beauty is undoubtedly its coastal pleasures, offering the professional and casual holiday-making fisherman alike a chance to attune to the solace of the lapping waves of the ocean, the profusion of native marine species and the answers to life the ocean offers us in a pleasant distraction from the hustle of every day life. 

To paraphrase the American writer Henry David Thoreau’s oft-espoused sentiment: many men go fishing their whole lives without realising it’s fish they are after. And so it is with Thoreau’s philosophical words in mind, that we set out to the shimmering seas of the Indian Ocean, to bordering Sri Lanka in search of the sounds of the ocean to find our perfect catch in out latest fashion shoot.
