Beachwear is taken to a whole new level on Oahu, where smaller, independent labels founded by local designers and retailers have flourished in recent years. Shops like Aloha Beach Club are offering a modern, design-forward take on surf-inspired board shorts and T-shirts, while updating the classic Aloha shirt for a new generation.
