MUUMUU HEAVEN POP UP BOUTIQUE IN WAIKIKI
Mu'umu'u Heaven is back! At least until the end of June...The buzzed-about Kailua store that recently shut its doors teamed up with T Galleria by DFS to bring its signature vintage aloha wear to Waikiki with a special pop up shop.
Expect to find a great selection of Mu'umu'u Heaven favorites such as reclaimed maxi dresses, flowy tops and denim cut-offs with funked-up pockets, alongside a new line of t-shirts, accessories and homewares. A variety of other local brands are sprinkled throughout the space, including Dale Hope, Lauren Roth Art and Aloha Friday (the cutest old-school-style sunglasses ever).
Keeping with Mu'umu'u Heaven's commitment to sustainability, the beach-hut-style pop up shop is made almost entirely out of reclaimed and recycled materials from ReUse Hawaii, estate sales and elsewhere. Even the 16-foot palm tree at the entrance of T Galleria uses 90-percent recycled materials, crafted out of aloha-print fabrics found at local thrift stores. Many of the furniture and fixtures are from the original store, including its signature chandelier. Adding even more local flare to the decor is a floral installation by Paiko's Tamara Rigney and legendary bodysurfer and lifeguard Mark Cunningham's "Fin Anemone" (an art piece made up of 850 surfboard fins found on the ocean floor) is on display.
Though T Galleria is normally a duty-free shop for international travelers, locals and visitors alike can get their Mu'umu'u Heaven fix from 11am-10:30pm now through June. I'd advise you to check out this little slice of heaven before it's too late!
Don't forget that Mu'umu'u Heaven owner Deb Mascia opened Hana Hou Vintage in Kailua, for even more treasure hunting.
