aloha friday scoop

the latest book on my nightstand is a must read if you covet fancy fashion labels with some of the most fascinating pages detailing how luxury came to dominate kalakaua avenue in the 80's. a good lesson for both designers building their brand and status shoppers coveting the now corporate-owned logos more concerned with profit margins than the handcrafted workmanship that were once the calling card of the legendary couturiers. alas.

after you shop the kcc farmers market, stop by and say hello to flower child which recently opened its second outpost filled with local favorites including florencia arias, kealopiko, organik, tiare hawaii and more!

on the valley isle, make your way to wailuku town to shop for father's day and save 20% off at maui thing.

p.s. off-island peeps also score when entering secret code dad in the online shop.

then hele upcountry to tamara catz for the annual sample sale where lucky locals can save up to 70% off!

  • when: sat, jun 18th - 9a to 7:30p
  • where: 83 hana hwy, paia

anna of honolulu who will be wrapping herself up in organik goodness this summer!

mahalo to all my mateys who took a moment to try their luck and say hello. while there was only one goody bag to share, our friends at organik have lots of eco-friendly style to tempt you in their sirens & sailors collection filled with stripes and nautical themed designs along with new additions to the line's upcycled coffee sack carryalls. hooray for organic cotton, recycled poly (spun from recycled plastic bottles), and silky bamboo threads . . . all made in the u.s.a.

join me on deck for few summertime favorites after the jump!

if the looks you covet are missing in the online shop, bring your wishlist to your neighborhood stockist who, if you ask nicely, may be able to special order summer 2011 merch for you.

and, east coast readers will have a chance to meet organik's skippers when they sail up the atlantic later this summer (details soon in the aloha friday scoop).

happy congratulations anna!
