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.
