The story behind

Laurence Bourthoumieux pays tribute to the gentle beauty of Oahu, Hawaii’s most habited island and home to the capital Honolulu. Here “aloha” is a magical word that can mean hello, welcome, see you soon, or love. The lei, a garland of deliciously perfumed plumeria flowers, is offered along with this welcome where different nationalities live harmoniously. The vast Oahu valley, dominated by two volcanoes, harbors a whole world of plant life. Hibiscus, guava, traveler’s trees, coconut palms and passion flowers surround a hula dancer along with birds of paradise, cardinals and macaws. Reality can come so close to a dream! The design has been treated to a dip dye makeover and is seen through a color filter.
