We are Iconic Owner Shie Clark on Her Approach to Fashion

Bronwyn Barnes and Nuy Cho | April 29, 2019 | People

The `We are Iconic’ boutique owner is helping redefine and refresh urban style in Honolulu.


What is your approach to fashion?
For me personally, wearing men’s-inspired pieces with a feminine touch is classic and timeless.

Do you have a style icon?
This is a tough one. I wish I could give you someone, but I always go with what I feel and who I am.

What is the best style advice you’ve received?
My mom helped show me that if I buy quality pieces, they will last longer. And I’d always be excited to wear them over and over again.

What are some things you’ll never do?
I won’t purchase fast-fashion or disposable clothing. Since I own a store, I work with a lot of talented designers from all over the world. I know how passionate they are and how hard they work to create such beautiful clothes every season. I’m inspired by them and want to continue to support them.

What’s your go-to item?
My Golden Goose sneakers that I’ve had for years. I’m very active at the store and need to be comfortable but still a little edgy.

In regards to jewelry, what do you like?
Mostly silver. Right now I’m into Spinelli Kilcollin.

Who are your favorite designers?
Rachel Comey, Raquel Allegra and Nili Lotan… these are the brands I pretty much wear every day!

What’s your beauty routine like?
Pretty simple: I like it to flow and be easy, so I only apply moisturizer, mascara, eye liner—and I can’t forget my signature red lipstick!
