Quick look: In4mation opens at Ala Moana


IMG_5950In4mation grand-opened a 1,138-square-foot store at Ala Moana Center Tuesday night with a live art presentation by Aaron “Angry Woebots” Martin. The 5-foot panda statue, Angry Woebots’ first 3D piece of this size, will be part of the store’s decor.

IMG_5925Like In4mation’s three other Hawaii stores, this one has women’s apparel, accessories, men’s wear and shoes from Stussy, Undefeated, Benny Gold, Huf, Lightsleepers and more. A wooden tree shelf in the front features local brands; currently it’s all about Moon Collective. The store is on the street level by the AT&T store.

IMG_5944IMG_5948In4mation was founded by Jun Jo, Ryan Arakaki, Keith Kanagusuku and Todd Shimabuku. “We’ve wanted to open a location here from the very beginning,” Kanagusuku said, “and after 13 years in the making it’s here, and we have a chance to showcase local brands to a wide international audience.”



Jaime Shibuya made the cupcakes. Aaron “Angry Woebots” Martin added his artwork to some of the creations.



I love these vintage merchandising touches by Hound and Quail.
