The Earth Pig 2019
A year of goodwill to all. An excellent climate for business and industry in general will prevail. People will be more free and easy on the whole and the complaisant attitude of the Boar will generate a feel of abundance. The Boarʻs year is one of plenty. (Theodora Lau)
In celebration of the Chinese New Year of 4716, we honor the Earth Pig! Our fabric layout depicts the lucky, courageous, joyful, undemanding, nice, patient, resilient native of a Pig Year (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007). The name we give to our latest Chinese Horoscope animal is “Puaʻaʻehuʻehu” which translates to Red Pig. In poetry, the Puaʻaʻehuʻehu makes reference to the ʻāmaʻumaʻu fern, kinolau to Kamapuaʻa. The demigod who often fought with Pele, would run into a forest of ʻamaʻu, turning himself into a fern himself.
Kung Hee Fat Choy!
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttondown 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!
