Kukuiʻulaakamapuaʻa Button Up Aloha Shirt - Indigo
This Button Up Aloha Shirt features our Kukuiʻulaakamapuaʻa print on Indigo fabric with Prairie Sky ink.
The first vision I had of this layout came in August 2006 while making a lei kukui for Ku'uipo Kahele. I had been making the lei from leaves picked from my yard. There are two kukui trees which were planted by Kūha'o and myself. They are side by side and have been in the ground for a while now; their leaves dance in the wind. Their distinct shape differs from the common kukui in that their shape looks like a pig's face. The kukui is kinolau to Kamapua'a, the pig god, and this tree is his likeness. I thought it would be nice to have many of these leaves, rather close to each other, singled out, so we could see each distinct shape. Their size doesn't really matter; they could be presented in various ways as if falling from the branch.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Button Up is an open front, tapered shirt with a full length placket. 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!
