Publisher Comments:

Hawaiand#8217;i is one of the most ethnically and racially diverse places in the world due to its central location in the Pacific. Situated at the crossroads of different cultures, Honolulu has a style all of its own. Honolulu Street Style captures this unique approach as it demonstrates how global trends are transformed by stylish Honolulu denizens to give them a unique, local look. Divided into chapters on hair, hats, accessories, and beachwear, the book features the styles of people encountered on the street and in many different neighborhoods, with an essay on the history and clothing of Hawaiand#8217;i as a whole.and#160;

and#160;

The neighborhood fashion explored includes that of iconicand#160;Waikikiand#160;which conjures images most people associate with Hawai'i, yet the mass-produced tourist clothing belies a deeper fashion culture hidden in local enclaves and local boutiques that foster an upscale, casual style. Chinatown is a neighborhood of dramatic color and exotic touches, and hosts and#147;First Fridayand#8221; events that transform the neighborhood into a crowded hub of artistic, musical, and retail activity. As the photos show, the Kakaand#8217;ako neighborhood draws a crowd that is hip, traveled, and not afraid to venture off the beaten path. In contrast, the Manoaand#160;valley, home to the flagship campus of the University of Hawaiand#8217;i, presents itself as an eclectic mix of students and professionals dressed in everything from boho chic to surfer, skater, avant-garde, and casual professional style.

and#160;

A highly visual book with full-color street style photography, Honolulu Street Style will be a landmark publication in the study of place and style.

Synopsis:

A guide to street fashion from 1940 to the present day. It documents the styles and their wearers on the street, but also on the high fashion catwalk, to which streetstyle has made an enormous, if perhaps unwilling, contribution.

Synopsis:

Hawaii is one of the most ethnically and racially diverse places in the world due to its central location in the Pacific. Although it is one of the most remote places in the world, it has been called home by people of many different races, ethnicities, cultures, and social strata. Hawaiiand#8217;s diversity is the result of a continuing influx of people who leave their homelands and seek a new life in the Hawaiian Islands.and#160; Honolulu Street Style demonstrates how global trends are transformed to give them a unique, local style, as well as how local trends influence global fashion. Various Hawaiand#8217;i neighborhoods are explored, ranging from the tourist hot-spot of Waikiki, to the up-and-coming trendy neighborhood of Kakaako, the business center of Downtown, and the artistic area of Chinatown. The book focuses on 4 distinct Hawaiand#8217;i looks: Aloha attire, the lei, beachwear and tattoos.
