OluKai is a Hawaiian-inspired footwear company that is constantly innovating around the type of comfy and cozy shoe they bring their people. They make shoes that I actually love to wear, which is saying something for a surf bum whose in and out of sand a lot. It isn't my first time working with OluKai, but this was a very different kind of collaboration with them.
Shirts, totes, hats, towels...and now hydroflasks! LeaLea is a Japanese travel and merchandising company in love with Hawaii. They asked me to design a kawai (Japanese for cute) surf scene for their exclusive water bottles. If you've been following my work for a while, you know that surf dudes, dudettes, and doggos are my jam, and this collaboration was no exception.
Fellow classic car enthusiast and vintage-modern designer Roberta Oaks and I got together to collaborate on the ultimate nod to our favorite Hawaiian era, the aloha shirt. We've collaborated on two limited-run aloha shirt patterns made with aloha right here in Hawaii.
