Releasing in-store, online, and at select stockists this Saturday, August 30th, 2014.
We present to you the fourth release of our Summer 2014 “Perception” Delivery 2 collection. Utilizing the same three patterns from Delivery 1 (Maiʻa, Vanquish, and Kālā Pepa) in bolder, darker colors, we continue to explore the perception of Hawaii from the outside looking in as well as the inside looking out.
A bold floral pattern that embodies the look of the classic aloha shirts found at Dukeʻs Lane, the popular open market spot where tourists would go to find loud and cheap aloha shirts. It acts as a representation of the outside perception of Hawaii in the mid 1900’s, being a bright and colorful tourist attraction.
This pattern is an amalgamation of Hawaiʻi’s lost native birds. All the extinct birds seen on this pattern have been vanquished due to invasive plants and animals after foreign assimilation. Beautiful birds like the ʻiʻo, ʻiʻiwi, ʻelepaio, palila, and ʻakohekohe, just to name a few, all suffered this fate. From an inside perspective, Hawaiians see the ruins of a once thriving ecosystem.
