Aloha kākou!

“We forward in this generation.” These powerful words spoken by Bob Marley (Redemption Song), are the foundation for our Fall Delivery One collection. Although it can be interpreted in a number of ways, through our collection we perceive the meaning as “adaptation through change,” and liken it to Hawaiʻi’s ability to assimilate and adapt to a variety of changes throughout its existence, and how we as a people keep moving forward. From the first settlers landing in Hawaiʻi, to Kamehameha’s unity of the islands, to the wave of western influence in Hawaiʻi, and to the present with Hawaiʻi’s ongoing environmental changes—we’ve pulled some of these moments in Hawaiʻi’s history and visually portrayed them within our Fall collection.

As a way to interpret our moʻolelo throughout, we built several new designs and patterns, as well as looked back to a few classics from our archives, all of which can be tied back to the collection’s theme. We also focused much of our energy on the material and textiles used, many even for the first time, resulting in a more refined and detailed capsule.

Through our Fall 2014 collection, we strive to showcase Hawaiʻi’s ability to assimilate and move forward through all the changes it has faced. In addition, we also draw a parallel to our company on more of a microscopic level. Coming up on 10 years in this industry, we’ve witnessed many changes, trends, and even recessions. Through it all, we maintained and pushed forward, stronger and more knowledgeable than ever before. May we move forward in this generation, and may we move forward in each generation to come.
