Palaiʻula Ululani Dress - Camouflage
This Ululani features our Palaiʻula print on Camo Broadcloth fabric with Summer Pear ink.
One of my favorite camouflage artists is the octopus. My dad taught me to find heʻe in Kāneʻohe Bay as a kid, teaching me how to distinguish them among the limu and the coral. Military and hunters have used camouflage for centuries, hiding from plain sight. For us today, camo is playful and vogue. Woven in Japan, these specific camo fabrics are medium weight, and of 100% cotton.
In the soft light under the ʻōhiʻa and koa, the palapalai is nourished by the moisture gathered. Only the best fronds are selected to be made into lei: the mature, fully developed, and dark stems. The offering of the lei palapalai on the kuahu hula is accompanied by oli, dedicated to laka. Palaiʻula are my favorites! The red-tinged edges make the lei extra special!
The dress name literally means “Breadfruit Leaf Insight” and figuratively “Eternal Inspirational Knowledge". Simple, practical, and so easy! This Ululani Dress is meant for the moments you choose to live. Alluding to a life of pleasure, the purpose of the styling is the ease-of-wear, and the expectations of cool, showcasing effortlessness. Step-into-and-go, but with a nod to a comfortable fit and a little sassiness. Showing your legs along with a fitted bodice, you are on the catwalk ready for the expression!
