When a brand’s ethos is “resort is a state of mind,” you know the offerings are going to be really good. Tori Richard (toririchard.com), founded in 1956 in Honolulu, continues to represent the best in peppy prints. This month brings a new men’s print, Eden, reminiscent of Hawai‘i’s fruit trees (there are actually 10 in all—can you name them?). For women, a Loco Moco print comes in a classic shift dress style (Adele) and a shirtdress (Jodie), featuring details such as a self-belt and crisply cuffed sleeves. The classic pareo-style print, updated with a pineapple as a nod to Hawai‘i’s famous hospitality, is on a breathable, comfortable vintage diamond Jacquard fabric for all those warm island days.
Fall brings triple the fun to legendary Hawaiian brand Jams World (jamsworld.com): A collection has launched to benefit the Hawai‘i Humane Society, with 20% of sales of the Seagrass collection (there’s a woman’s dress, girl’s dress, men’s shirt, tote bag and face mask) going toward the cause. The Tropea Beach collection—which depicts both ocean and shoreline in a unique graphic print—also launches this month, as does the rerelease of the popular Loop de Loop collection, featuring a multicolored freehand design. It can now be yours in several styles, including the Ci Ci, a flattering sundress.
For almost 60 years, Reyn Spooner (reynspooner.com) has been one of Hawai‘i’s go-to brands for quality, well-designed fun shirts. Fall brings new performance-style polos in classic Spooner prints to help make days at the beach or the golf course much more comfortable. The brand has also donated masks to Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawai‘i and the Hawai‘i Department of Education’s frontline workers, who provide free meals to children, making these shirts you feel good in—and feel good about.
Gucci (gucci.com) is paying special attention to Hawai‘i with a range of limited-edition products made exclusively for and exclusively sold on the islands. Woven organic cotton pieces, such as a tote, pouch and fedora, proudly boast a Hawai‘i emblem, making them serious collectors’ items. Other destinations in the collection include Mykonos, Cannes and Capri—but you’ll have to pack your bags and head there to seek out those designs.
