This Buttonup Aloha Shirt features our Pōhakulani print on Seascape fabric with Black and Graphite ink.
“Bliss” kind of expresses how I feel while gathering liko. In the quiet morning, the forest is alive and refreshed after a night of mist and rain. Gazing over the tops of young ʻōhiʻa trees, I search for the colorful orange, burgundy, and red shoots. These are my favorites to make lei. I also look for liko that “stretch out in the rain”. Usually plentiful after a long period of rain, the foot-long young growth isnʻt used for lei. Instead, these cherished liko are placed in a glass vase for our dinner table or maybe on the desk at work. These are the extra-special liko!
This liko was cut especially for Haku Hoʻopai. She has danced with Nālani for the past thirty years, and also worked at Sig Zane Designs. I love her as one of my daughters! This design was my gift to her upon her marriage!
This layout was created and named, for part of Hakuʻs name, by Kūhaʻo.
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!
