Located on the top floor of Crescat, Linen & Life by Ramona Pulle does a lovely range of linen clothing. Prices range from about Rs. 3000 to Rs. 5500.

Linens are a good option if you live near the equator. They're light, comfortable and cool - but perhaps not always suitable as formalwear (work, parties). Linen & Life adapts a fabric that has largely been rendered as bohemian shapeless, loose-fitting fashion to smart cocktail dresses and trendy tops that look good while also being very comfy.

Most items are well-fitted, lined (a plus - no underskirts or slips needed) and come in simple, elegant designs. The dresses work especially well as office wear. They're mostly sleeveless and end a little bit above the knee.

Each piece should be available in a range of colours - blacks and off-whites as well as some bright oranges, greens, blues etc - although when we visited they seemed to be at the tail end of the season so stocks were low. Sizing seems to be US.

The current collection also includes a few less formal numbers. Flowing beach items evoke a casual day in Galle sort of vibe - pastel oversized kimono shirts, light and long kurta tops, teeny shorts.

Dresses range from about Rs. 4000 to Rs. 5000 and menswear is similar at around Rs. 5000 a shirt. A small, but nice store overall, although service could improve. It's worth a visit - especially for the corporate linens.


The sizes aren't UK, try stuff on.

Crescat is next to the Cinnamon Grand, accessible from Galle Road or from behind via the Beira. Inside, Linen & Life is tucked at the back of the main atrium, go up the escalators and then all the way back around, near the cyber-cafe.
