This Lūhaupua Dress features our Kinolau Kanaloa design on Moss fabric with Parfait ink.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttonup is an open front, tapered shirt with a full length placket, while the Pullover features a half placket and is designed slightly wider to allow over-the-head dressing with ease. 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!
Lūhaupua is a wind in the district of ʻŌlaʻa, south of the Hilo district. Translating to “the wind that scatters the dew and the blossoms” this energy is one of many in Puna. Within our Makaniʻoluʻolu Collection, the Lūhaupua Dress became a popular piece. Button up front, a short oriental collar, and the tea length makes it easy wear. More than a decade has passed as we re-introduce this style!
Fabric is 45% tencel and 55% linen and is machine washable. Model is wearing size XS.
