Fish Out Of Water

www.leichic.comYou love fish. Opah Chinese style. ‘Ahi black and blue or simply gleaming pink. Fried mahi katsu. Kiawe grilled ulua. But ever since your beloved pet Pinky went belly up in your fish tank, you’ve steered clear of live fins and scales.

 A safer and, dare we say, prettier way to bring real fish back into your home is Loreen Matsushima’s custom gyotaku tiles. An artist raised with fishermen who now works surrounded by sea life as PR and Advertising director for Atlantis Adventures, Matsushima’s observations are absorbed directly into permanent, functional works of art.

First she heads to... Read more »

Bag to Basics

www.leichic.com

Everybody’s got a thing. You know, like how your best friend is mad for shoes, even wearing Uggs in the summer. And how your mom covets all jewels – the more bling the better.

But for you, it’s handbags. You’ve got one for every occasion, but what about for everyday?

Lucky Star

www.leichic.com

Back in the day looking like your friends was in. Like how you all wore fishhook anklets, you and your BFF had tiny (and illegal) matching tattoos, and even your frenemies sported similar Swatches. These days, though, being matchy-matchy is a fashion faux pas (except maybe if you’re twins, and even then you better be the Doublemint kind).

But you can all get away with wearing Lulu Leilani’s fun, flirty and delicate chain necklaces, made by local girl and college senior Alyssa Kojima.

What started out as a cute gift idea turned into a genuine business www.leichic.comRead more »

Sponsored Edition: Back in Black (and White)

The international urban retailer, known for their noir/blanc palette of modern classic clothing, brings fashion fundamentals front and center  and honors their rich heritage of working with legendary photographers (think Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier and...

A Dog Do Bio Bags

www.leichic.com We’re not prudes or anything. We just think that there are still some things better left unsaid. Kept to yourself. Private domain. Mum’s the word. Okay, you get the drift. But that’s also going to make this really difficult.

Because certain private affairs so often become public. Like when people leave their dog’s business right on their neighbor’s lawn for everyone to see (and smell). That’s not kosher (and in some places it’s illegal), but even if you scooped it up into an old plastic grocery bag, dropped it in the bin and sent it off anonymously to the landfill – well...
