kahala spring 2008 collection


while visiting my mom earlier this year, i happened upon a story on the rebirth of the kahala sportswear line (which became part of tori richard a few years ago). the design that caught my eye was kahala's homage to mid-century style (shown above) perfect for hipsters seeking to revisit the cocktail culture of the rat pack. my curiosity was piqued so enjoy this little show and tell of the venerable alohawear brand!

say goodbye to the tired reverse print seen on every other island "suit" and visitor industry worker bees and hello to a spring collection that has recaptured the line's iconic look from back in the day with a renewed focus on pattern and design.

an ala moana shop is in the works and set to open in the new nordy's wing this month, however, if you can't make it to the flagship store, the best online selection seems to be stocked at zappos and aloha shirt shop.

I read that same article - good stuff. I am with you, the latest Kahala prints are great - a move back to art and stories. Great site - great links. Keep it up.
