To celebrate King Kamehameha Day tomorrow, we will be releasing a specially made FITSTRIKE Kamehameha snapback inspired by one of the King Kamehameha Day annual traditions. Every year, the State of Hawaiʻi holds a Lei Draping Ceremony at the famous King Kamehameha Statue, which is prominently displayed in front of the Aliʻiolani Hale. During the ceremony, hundreds of yards of beautiful lei—hand-sewn by the wonderful women of ʻAhahui Kaʻahumanu—are elegantly adorned over the arms of the great king.
The colors and beauty of the lei inspired tomorrow’s FITSTRIKE release, with bright plumeria pink as the base color on this snapback. The addition of lime green, dark pink, and white help emphasize the variety of bright, natural colors seen among the lei. As always with our FITSTRIKE hats, only 50 pieces were produced.
