Entries in aloha wear (20)


ohana style at manuheali'i

yes virginia, there is a difference between tacky outdated alohawear and cool vintage island threads. the fresh botanical prints from manuheali'i will no doubt fall into the latter category one day and their website is the perfect one stop shop to pick up gifts for the entire family. and since they ship via priority mail your order just may squeak by the postmaster's holiday deadline.

take a peek at manuheali'i's hibiscus collection which has everything from the cute ailana dress & boys' aloha shirts (shown above) to stylish shirts for grownups and lovely fabric lined lauhala handbags for the ladies.


happy birthday tori richard!

sahara festival + monstera

if you loved the retro aloha shirt mentioned in yesterday's post about the hawaii international film festival then it's time to get to know tori richard. the venerable hawaii fashion house, a favorite of island jet setters, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with the release of tori richard: the first fifty years, a history of how the company got its start with a delightful retrospective of vintage designs.

preconceived notions of what embodies aloha wear are in for a sweet surprise when you take a look at the newest collection. tori richard's roots are in textile design (14,000 prints and counting) which has always been the foundation for their signature cosmopolitan style that has been worn on islands all around the world.

in hawaii, stop by the tori richard shops at ala moana, the hilton hawaiian village, hyatt regency, or the shops at wailea on maui. the line is also stocked in the resort department at luxury retailers neiman marcus, saks, and bergdorf goodman.


another aloha friday

flying into hawaii on aloha friday will be a nice treat for this homesick islander. those of you who have been stopping by h|h for the last few months already know how much i love the bargains to be found at sierra trading post. now that a few more have joined us, i guess it's time to let them in on the secret too.

if you need to update your aloha friday wardrobe, click over to stp and take a peek at the latest arrivals from kahala. my other half's vintage collection primarily consists of the bold graphic designs from the 60's, but i do dig this contemporary aloha shirt with its diamond head & waikiki beachboys print.


manuheali'i says aloha

kalo knit + spider lily

i'm not one for traditional aloha wear but a friend just turned me on to a cool line called manuheali'i. their clothing is very wearable and quite pretty with the added bonus of more modern cuts on pieces like the kalo boat knit top (shown above).

if you like what you see then hele over to their site (or stop by their shop in kailua or punahou) since manuheali'i is having a sale which means you can save 20% (or more).

{mahalo kym for the tip!}


aloha friday

speaking of saving a few dollars, one of my favorite places to shop online is sierra trading posticon. although it's geared towards outdoor enthusiasts, stp is the place to go if you're on the hunt for designer aloha shirts (midcentury tapa printicon from kahala shown above) & women's aloha wear at a sweet price.
