Aloha! Hawaiian prints

Hawaiian prints turned up on (almost) every runway this season. From Stella McCartney to Marc Jacobs... from Donatella Versace to Zimmermann... they were all influenced by the famous archipelago & its prints!

Spring hasn't even started yet, but for those of you who are going on a cruise or enjoy the sun in some exotic location, the resort collections might just be what you need! Because palm trees equal holidays equal tropical destinations equal fun!

If you're interested in the history of the Hawaiian print, or if you want to buy some vintage Hawaiian shirts, check out this book: "The Aloha shirt. Spirit of the islands" by Dale Hope & Gregory Tozian.

If you want to buy a modern take on the Aloha shirt instead, 
Net-a-Porter can help out:
