This Pullover Aloha Shirt features our Mōhalapua print on Pepper fabric with Whitw and Corn Yellow ink.
"Blossoming of youth" is the translation of this term designated for the design of 'ulei. The reference here is to honor one of Keana Okuda's offerings as a fabric layout designer. This three-color "second layout" of this design exudes a delicate nature, an oriental sense in artistic placement, and a zeal to create intrinsic beauty. The name of this design, if taken literally, means the "flower blooms". With Hawaiian poetry, the reference to pua is often with affectionate regard to a person.
You don’t need that formal invitation to make pretty. Dressing up for the evening at home will highlight the day and sure to let him know who is boss. Put on the attitude and let go!
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!
