This Button Up Aloha Shirt features our Kani Ka Lei print on pepper fabric with Shark ink.
Kani Ka Lei
Kūpe'e shells adds to the percussion in hula. Stringing into lei for ankles and wrists,
each step and movement syncopates, adding depth to the experience. Before threading into lei, each shell is placed in “position.” Sizing and placement is important to create a balanced lei of shells. Of course, the colors of the shell add to the aesthetics. The name, Kani Ka Lei, refers to the sounds of the shells when we dance.
During the lowest tides and the darkest moon, the shell emerges out of the sand and feeds on the exposed rocks. Depending on the colors of the surrounding sand and rocks, the markings
are often unique to place.
Kūha'o explains, “…at the moment we tie on the kūpe'e, the spirit is ignited!”
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Button Up is an open front, tapered shirt with a full length placket. Coconut buttons are featured on the stand-up, button-down collar and on the front placket. Tuck it in or leave it out over the trousers for a more casual look. Either way, it's the perfect touch of crisp aloha!
Model is 6ʻ1" and is wearing a size large.
Hang to dry.
