Impeccably dressed, flawlessly made up and always poised, Escada’s general manager Jane Moon and selling manager Natassha Pablo are bigwigs of the local style scene. Heading up the Hawaii branch of one of the most influential fashion brands in sleekly tailored suits and shape-defining dresses, the head-turning duo deserves glamour cred for being two of Honolulu’s best dressed. Their wardrobes do, however, go beyond the ooh-la-la of Escada’s lavish, luxe world. In fact, when it comes to their days off, the ladies’ choices are surprisingly low-key. “Style isn’t about how much you can spend, it’s a way to express who you are and to have fun,” says Moon. And, judging from their eclectic mix of must-haves, you know these women like to untuck and unwind.
