Haute Stuff: Proving that the past is never fashionably late, summer’s retro-inspired swimwear and accessories dip into classic ’50s prints and silhouettes.

Megumi Hosogai was tired of sporting shades that settled uncomfortably on her cheeks instead of her nose, so the Punahou School alum created a pair of sunglasses with an extended bridge tailored to fit Asian faces. Featuring oversized frames inspired by the first lady of fashion, Jackie Onassis, her Megumi O sunglasses are a sight for four eyes. $250, megumio.com

Now on shelves, Hawaii-born designer Malia Mills’ swimwear collaboration with Kate Spade New York is making waves with sexy, pin-up-style bikinis and maillots in vintage-inspired, tropical prints. Florence Broadhurst Fingers bikini top, $188, and bottom, $168, Kate Spade New York, Royal Hawaiian Center, 922-3390.
