From the black sand beaches of Honokalani and Punalu¹u, to the lava rocks of Kilauea – the color “black” is just as common-place in the Hawaiian Isles as it is anywhere else in the world. Simple, conservative and subtle – black goes with anything. It can be mysterious, sexy and sophisticated – which brings us to the proverbial axiom, “Black Is Beautiful”. Black can also convey negative connotations as well, it represents times of mourning or even rebellion – which makes it a balanced color. Under the cover of darkness (black skies) is when the (Huakai’ipo) Hawaiian Night Marchers made their nightly procession. This Ele’Ele pack is for you – the royalty that keep us going strong year after year.
Here is the rundown on this soon to be classic hat. There are two different styles: The Pride hat which features a raised embroidery Old Hawaiian Style “H” and The Warrior hat which features a raised embroidery stitching of the late, great “King Kamehameha.” Both hats come in an exclusive linen fabric (the same fabric used on some of the finest Italian suits), a satin lining on the inside of the hat that features a collage of ancient Hawaiian weapons, FITTED crest stitched on the back and the FITTED crown that rests on the right side of the hat. Along with the hat is a matching black t-shirt which features the same collage print of the Hawaiian warrior weapons (seen on the lining of the hat), printed on the front of the t-shirt in a black tonal print, and “Black Is Beautiful” across the back of the shirt – also in a tonal print.
The pack will be released at Fitted Hawaii this coming Saturday, September 29th. Phone orders are excepted as well as of 2PM.
