This Mōhalu Dress features our Heʻikelau design on Limestone fabric with Juniper ink.
The breadfruit is the prerequisite design. Once the first fabric layout with the breadfruit is complete, our graphic designers are then able to work with other art. This first design layout by Brittini expresses intimacy with the leaf patterns. Close inspection of leaf, fruit, and branches, underscores familiarity. Knowing the nuances of the plant makes a stronger statement. Heʻikelau can literally be translated as “A Knowledge Blossoming”. Figuratively, the name means “Knowledge Proliferates”.
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!
