This Mōhalu dress features our Noeʻulakapalai print on Chocolate fabric with Cactus ink.
The palaʻā fern is very lacy, delicate, and rare. Choosing very difficult places to grow, the light green fronds make a wonderful lei. Hula patrons offer this fern on the kuahu for it is a kinolau of Laka, the diety of hula. This design was done for Noeʻulakapalai, the first grandniece of Sig Zane. The name invokes "the fern in the pink-hued mist."
Today we fancy it up a little - just so we can talk style, life, and print - in today’s terms! The collar frames the iwilei and the poʻo, the sleeve caps the shoulder, and the length is just enough to cover the beachwear. We invite you to bring your attitude: walk deliberately, lift that chin, shake that head of hair loose…. Wear it with tights. Keep your jeans on. May everything bloom in your wake!
