We definitely got lucky last night—and we’re not talking about smooches, shamrocks or shots. We mean the shopping-and-chic-infusion our life got after taking in the Reyn Spooner fashion show at Ala Moana Center’s annual Shop a Le‘a festival. We’ve been gearing up for this bad boy for the past week, pulling looks from the store, brushing up on the latest prints and making room in our man’s closet for these handsome new styles. (You’re welcome, dude.) So, saying our digital and fashion team was excited to scope out the runway last night is a serious understatement.
From serene Island imagery such as palm trees and sailboats, to a retro-meets-modern color palette of dusty blues and deep magentas, the new collection is perfect for the sunny months ahead. Here are 9 memorable moments from last night’s festivities for the books. Warning: You may just turn green with envy if you missed it. Your luck hasn’t run out yet, though—the Ala Moana Center Reyn Spooner store is still offering 25 percent off one item all through the weekend, so you still have time to get down there and feel the aloha yourself!
