"Fall happens to be one of my favorite times of year in the islands. There's a smell and a breeze that is different. For this campaign, I was hoping to capture that changing of the guards and the uniqueness of the seasons here," says Samantha Howard, one of the two founders of Wings Hawaii, a boutique and lifestyle brand based in Maui.
For Wings' latest lookbook, the team trekked to Waihou Spring Forest Reserve in Makawao—where the tall knotty pines look like they are in perfect rows and the forest floor is littered with red pine needles—to really capture the autumnal vibes (quite a feat in the islands).
All of the pieces in this shoot are Wings Hawaii brand, sewn in a studio in Haiku, Maui (with the exception of the hats). If you’re not familiar, I urge you to check out this charming boutique in Paia that carries its own jewelry and clothing as well as other handmade Hawaii brands. Can't make it to the boutique?
