Manaola Yap brings his design talents, flair for visual storytelling and unique aloha style together in his eponymous label Manaola Hawai‘i. Looking beyond the aloha shirt and mu‘umu‘u, his line combines the aesthetics of two distinct, and often conflicting, trends—traditional Islandwear and modern haute couture—to create luxury pieces that remain true to his rich Hawaiian heritage.
Honolulu-based brand Reyn Spooner has been, for generations, a key player in the evolution of the aloha shirt in local fashion. Started in the 1950s, the brand redefined alohawear through the incorporation of stylish prints, quality fabrics and modern cuts, elevating its status to the iconic attire it’s known as today. Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, the brand will show six decades of alohawear on the runway, beginning with vintage Reyn Spooner pieces and ending with its 60th anniversary collection, which debuted earlier this year.

Designer Manaola Yap reimagines Hawaiian luxury with this exclusive collection, Kōlani, which means “belonging to the heavenly ones”, or “belonging to royalty”. Kōlani refers to the traditional seated dance, hula kōlani, where dancers performed these hula noho to honor Hawaiian monarchs. This collection was humbly born as a vision of how modern-day ali’i would adorn themselves in Hawai’i and throughout the world. Kōlani notes the multicultural influences of ali’i through their worldly travels into a collection that would distinguish Hawaiian royals for their international fashion savvy on a global stage.
