We’re not going to lie, we found time to sneak away from our HONOLULU Fashion Week duties to shop in the Marketplace. Some of us found unique Christmas gifts, a few luckier ones snagged limited-edition items, and a couple staff members really showed their love and invested in multiple picks. Here’s the proof.

6. HVN Apparel T-Shirt


HVN T-shirt


“It’s hard to pick a favorite, since I bought a few classic, chic jewelry pieces and both bottle openers from Andrew Mau. My unexpected find turned out to be a super-soft gray T-shirt that’s a mix of hemp and cotton with a wave-y faux pocket from HVN Apparel.”—Robbie Dingeman, editor in chief, HONOLULU Magazine.

Bottle openers


“Of all the (many, many) things I bought at the Marketplace, my two favorites by far are the shaka and opihi shell bottle openers from MAU-HOUSE. These are pieces of art, made of sturdy, solid metal and crafted masterfully; add in their functionality as bottle openers, and you’ve got pure perfection.”—Marisa Heung, special projects editor, HONOLULU Magazine.

11. Ecolicious T-Shirt

“Ecolicious’ comfy tees are bright and colorful. And, while the one I bought portrays a sunny, ocean scene, it’s way more stylish than the average beach T-shirt.”—Jennifer Dalgamouni, senior editor, HONOLULU Family Magazine.
