Rain

Think “Hawaii,” and visions of sun, greenery and rainbows come to mind. Such lushness can only come from rain, which we in Hawaii refer to as a blessing. In this land of rich foliage, rain is considered an auspicious welcome at any special occasion, especially a light rain. This tropical paradise boasts, really, only two seasons – sunny and rainy. Even when the land is drenched in sunshine, nature sometimes sends an ethereal sprinkle. While at other times, she shows off her disposition with a deluge that splashes a dramatic display of dozens of waterfalls across the mountainside in a matter of minutes. In fact, Hawaiians were so closely attuned to every subtlety of their environment that they could find no less than 200 words for this splendorous element called rain. From ho’okili or a gentle rain, to hekili or a thunderous rain, this range of emotions displayed by nature inspires our Rain collection. May this collection awaken the wearer to the captivating diversity of Hawaii’s climate and connect her to the various shades of its misty allure.
