This Buttonup Aloha Shirt features our Pōhakulani print on Paprika fabric with Pepper and Snow ink.
The Keahihanakahi design, created as a four-color image for all the girls in the Zane family, is now updated in this one-color print. The costumes for Johnny Lum Ho’s 2008 Merrie Monarch Festival performance on Wednesday, the opening night, featured this design in all yellow. We gave this design the name of the yellow lehua blossom, lehuamamo, in commemoration of this event.
If one looked toward the uplands from Mokuola, the puʻu just in the background of the historic downtown area would grab some attention. Famous for a bamboo grove that was used in ceremony, the hill affords an incredible view of the lands of Hanakahi.
Inspired by the ivy-league shirts of the early 1900s, the fabric designs are pure Hawai‘i, and the look is pleasingly fresh. The Buttonup 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!
