Hamakua State of Mind


Textile design


Collaboration with clothing designer Rumi Murakami. This Fall 2017 menswear and womenswear collection was inspired by the question "What does Fall in Hawai'i look like?" Inspired by the Hamakua coast of Hawai`i Island–the lush landscapes, wide vistas and historic Japanese and Hawaiian farming communities–resulted in a prints combining Hawaiian plants with traditional Japanese folk textiles, and designs with a relaxed, upcountry flavor and billowy silhouettes.
