Aloha, Inc.

| March 3, 2014 | Parties

When Philpotts Interiors’ 50th anniversary came around, this go-to studio proved it knew how to throw a fun Hawaiian-style bash! From the invitation alone—a snazzy vintage pic of Jack Lord from the original Hawaii Five-0—we knew it’d be a fabulous celebration. Guests arrived in festive aloha attire, while traditional melodies filled the air, courtesy of musician Tony Conjugacion. (He also happens to be designer Marion Philpotts-Miller’s hula teacher.) While the crowd hung out under the main tent festooned with pink Chinese umbrellas, the curious explored the studio’s retail shops, including the latest edition, Le Jardin Galerie. There, friends toasted design legend and Philpotts-Miller’s mother, Mary Philpotts McGrath. –Photos by Tracy Chan
