tiare hawaii: lost in paradise


after catching glimpses of tiare hawaii's lineup of island beauties in shop update after shop update, i finally remembered to dash off a note to find out more about the bohemian collection from the north shore. the tie-dye gowns in sherbert hues are what first caught my eye, and the little gypsy in me who loves to get lost inside anthropologie is swooning over the girly details and whisper-thin fabrics designed to keep you looking pretty even when oppressing humidity and scorching heat arrives on shore.

designer jane hoskins was happy to share the beginnings of tiare which was inspired by the global loveliness encountered while paradise hopping around the world with friends. (oh, the perks of having a flight attendant bff!) while on holiday in bali, jane fell in love with the exotic island and discovered indonesia's striking textiles which have become the gorgeous foundation of every tiare offering.

the beautiful and packable garments are wearable from the beach to town with hand embroidered cotton voile, silk batik prints, and dip-dyed loveliness fulfilling tiare's go anywhere in style philosophy.

more favorites for happy island days after the jump . . .

teeny bikini * tie-dye ruffles
batik shorts

your pocketbook will also be delighted that styles from spring's lost in paradise collection are appealingly priced from $35 to $100.

alas, online ordering is not yet available so your best bet is to pay a visit to your neighborhood stockist (including drift in kaimuki, oskar's in kilauea, pueo in kona, and pink by nature in makawao). jane also kindly shared a tip that aloha 'aina at the royal hawaiian shopping center and san lorenzo in waikiki carry the entire collection in every single springtime color.

do you have a favorite tiare in your closet?

p.s. off island friends are welcome to send jane a note to inquire about placing an order or to locate a retailer near you.
