1. Designer Roberta Oaks and menswear boutique owner Parker Moosman joined forces to create the breezy Oliver Men’s Shop x Roberta Oaks Workshirt. To match Oliver’s surf-shack vibe, Oaks opted for a classic, preppy pinstripe chambray that felt fresh and nicely broken in all at once. $110, Oliver Men’s Shop, 49 Kīhāpai St., 261-6587.


2. Maui-based Box Eleven transforms vintage fabrics into playful, handmade patchwork bags. For her Owens & Co. x Box Eleven bag, designer Katie Browne teamed up with shop owner Missy Owens, collaborating on everything from the fabrics (bark cloth from the ’40s and ’50s, and poppy ’70s swatches) to the silhouette, a nod to Owens’ personal love of cross-body bags. $82, Owens & Co., 1152 Nu‘uanu Ave., 531-4300.


3. Partnering on the Meleana x Rebecca Beach Canoe Side-Tie Short was easy for the swimwear shop’s creative director Lauren Caldiero and designer Meleana Estes. “We share the same nostalgia for Waikīkī,” says Estes, who drew inspiration from the area’s vibe in the ’70s. “Beach boys and long days under the coconut tree,” says Estes. $50, Diamond Head Beach House, 3218 B Monsarrat Ave., 737-8667.
