This Kaʻalāiki Dress features our Hua ʻĀpane design on Duckling with Coal and Medium Grey ink.
ʻŌhiʻaʻai (mountain apple) is the ʻōhiʻa that bears fruit. ʻŌhiʻa ʻāpane are the ʻōhiʻa ʻai with red blossoms, different from the ones with white. The fruit comes in different colors too, from pale pink to streaked reds. Hua ʻāpane refers to the beautiful dark red mountain apple.
From a single branch with one fruit, Brandy has created a lei out of woven branches, mirrored yet reversed, entangled but separate. Ā hua ā pane, is traditionally said after a riddle is told. A pun on the name when spoken, Huaʻāpane is our visual riddle.
Just as our men have their “Aloha Shirts”, the Kaʻalāiki our “Aloha Dress” will suit a Monday through Thursday schedule and then for Aloha Fridays.
In other words, this is the 24/7 piece! Live it up! We are in paradise!
