While much of the nation is still huddled in wool, bulky sweaters and overcoats, spring always comes early to Hawai’i, where warm winter sun and blue skies are an invitation to color your world.
Color experts at Pantone have singled out the citrusy Tangerine Tango as 2012’s Color of the Year, but that’s not the only bright jewel tone on the horizon. Think of your closet as a 96-count box of Crayolas.
Where once a single splash color sufficed in bringing life to one’s wardrobe, this season the basics have gone wild with flashes of fluorescent green, neon pink, royal purple and desert turquoise, for boundless, uninhibited expression.
ABOUT THE SETTING
With the sunny shades and striking silhouettes of the season, we headed to the place where the sun never stops shining- Waikiki-specifically, the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach for this issue’s fashion feature. Our team enjoyed shooting in the blue-hued SWIM, part of the property’s recent $13 million renovation that also introduced Japengo Restaurant, SHOR American Seafood Grill and the private Regency Club Lounge.
