This Saturday, we continue our seasonal delivery with the next release from our A/W Tradewinds Collection. Our natural tradewinds are unique and special to our islands, evoking a welcoming and affectionate reaction when they breeze through. Frequently described as a “natural air conditioner,” we not only look forward to the trades for the cool climate it brings, but also as a signal of calm and pleasant weather for outdoor activities such as surfing, fishing, or boating, which all heavily depend on great weather conditions.
For visual inspiration, we look to the old Hawaiian olelo noʻeau (proverb): “Ke kupu, o ka ʻaina ua malie, ua au koaʻe,” which translates to “The natives of the land declare that the weather is calm when the tropic bird travels afar.” The koaʻe (tropic bird) thus became symbolic as a sign of great weather when soaring far out at sea. Throughout the collection, there are numerous references to the koaʻe, along with nautical elements and climate map imagery, to help strengthen the overall aesthetic vision.
Two new patterns were created based on a climate map of the Pacific Ocean—TRDWND_EARTHBLUE and TRDWND_BLACKNIGHT—showing the wind direction as it flows during the hoʻoilo (wet) season in Hawaiʻi. We’ve also put extensive focus and care into our cut & sew program, introducing new pieces throughout the collection that are geared toward highly technical construction through our new TropTech tier, as well as premium lifestyle construction through our new OutFitted tier. And as usual, all items from this A/W Tradewinds Collection are limited in size and quantity and will not be reproduced.
Tradewinds Mua Snapback
This seasonal Mua snapback showcases the TRDWND_BLACKNIGHT pattern covering the entire crown and visor, with dark green side embroideries, red and gold back embroidery, and a white snap enclosure. The front Mua logo is stitched in red, gold, dark green, white, and black.
High Point Long-Sleeve Button Shirt – Red
We revisit our High Point Button Long-Sleeve Button Shirt in classic red and black plaid. The High Point Button Shirt is crafted to high specifications with unique signature details, like the large off-set patterned tri-lock gusset on the back and smaller tri-lock side seam gussets at the contoured bottom hem. It’s made out of breathable 100% cotton woven jacquard and features a traditional buttoned collar and button-down front with soft-touch rubber-coated buttons which have Aloha Served Daily engraved on the edges. The High Point Button Shirt also features a left chest pocket with embroidered koaʻe artwork and a tri-lock spec patch below the pocket near the bottom hem.
