A line from an Avett Bro.'s song that screams, "Be loud let your colors show" stuck with me while working on the current Pow!Wow! project. What came about are print selections that are bold and expressive, daring you to stand out in your world, to be a leader, to be confident.
A limited edition release of 35 shirts, the Halekauwila is the stand out aloha button up with hibiscus, gardenia and heliconia that keep it standard "aloha" while the cut-and-paste style of the print give it a more futuristic feel.
A collaboration between homegrown Aloha wear brand Roberta Oaks and POW! WOW! combining classic aloha shirt aesthetics with a modern urban twist. The shirts are handmade in Hawaii utilizing vintage fabrics only found on the island. With a modern slimmer cut and unique detailing, the classic aloha shirt heads in a whole new direction. The collab is produced in limited editions and can be purchased at the Roberta Oaks store in Honolulu’s Chinatown or online at shop.powwowhawaii.com.
