This Paniau Dress features our Kūikawā design on Sea Mist fabric with Breakers ink.
Lucky when you come across a patch of flowering ʻōlena! Itʻs bloom life is brief so youʻll want to be there when it starts and when it is happening. Listening to Lorna Lim singing Pua ʻŌlena is as beautiful as seeing the blooms in person!
On the lee side of our island, Paniau basks in the heat of South Kohala. Its shores front emerald waters, white sand, and views across the ʻAlenuihāhā Chanel. We chose this name for this dress to commemorate that special period in our lives when we lived for the sunshine.“Pani” is Hawaiian, a term that can mean to close. When we created the pattern for this dress, we were “closing” the sleeveless by giving it sleeves. Not only were we honoring one of our favorite sites on our island, but we gave birth to an iconic style with sleeves.A simple shirt-dress, a button-up front, and a yoke and collar, this easy wear 100% cotton has been a favorite for a couple of decades. We bring it back, celebrating its simplicity and the go-anywhere-attitude.
