pint sized finds

it seems like only yesterday that our friends' baby boom of 2008 was in full swing so, to celebrate the arrival of the first year baby luau invites, enjoy a short and sweet roundup of fresh new keiki goodness.

1 - little ones can get a head start on their abc's with little sprouts' alphabet onesie plus remind their 'ohana to take care of the 'aina and "save some for me" compliments of organic keiki.

2 - she may be too tiny to go on the big kid rides but is just the right size for mini eel editions of the honolulu label's stylish jersey knits (available at cupcake).

3 - keiki and young-at-heart grownups will certainly have a crush on berrysprite's irresistibly cute crocheted bear lollipops crafted in a rainbow of colors.

4 - machine machine designer shannon hiramoto first sewed up teeny keiki tunics out of vintage fabric for her niece and now offers the sweet designs in her etsy shop.


new peeks: fighting eel fall 2009


lan chung and rona bennett, the stylish duo behind honolulu-based label fighting eel, have a more structured look in mind for fall 09. word is many of the upcoming season's sophisticated silhouettes were made possible by a more substantial knit, and the new looks (absolutely lovely paired with tights) seem perfectly suitable for work and play.

autumn colorways include a deep navy blue, bold lipstick red, warm olive green, and, my favorite, gorgeous neutral gray.

more peeks below . . .


the fall looks are already waiting on the racks at fe's network of neighborhood stockists and should be arriving in the online shop next week. and, of course, a visit to the label's showroom is always a must stop when you find yourself in chinatown.


fighting eel summer 2009


no matter what your style may be, there is definitely a little something for everyone in fighting eel's summer 09 collection. designers rona bennett and lan chung looked to their passports for inspiration and returned with sketchbooks filled with ideas for summer staples perfect at home or wherever your next destination takes you.

this time around the jersey knits incorporate gorgeous details from dainty ties to peekaboo cutouts in dress hemlines that go from abbreviated to sweeping. the bohemian batik embellishments are a memento from rona's travels to bali while the juicy colorways are a happy reminder of lan's time spent exploring italy's amalfi coast.

although the summer looks are not yet stocked in the online shop, they have started to arrive at fe's network of neighborhood stockists or stop by the label's chinatown showroom for a peek:
