La Perla has opened its doors in the Macy's wing at Ala Moana Center.
The luxury brand is known for its high-end lingerie, swimwear and ready-to-wear apparel favored by Hollywood celebrities.

Men’s Wearhouse is continuing its National Suit Drive through Aug. 7.
The store in the Ward Entertainment Center, at Auahi and Kamakee streets, is accepting men’s and women’s professional attire such as suits, jackets, ties, shoes and accessories for distribution by nearly 150 charities across the country to help disadvantaged workers “suit up” for success. Donations collected at Hawaii Men’s Wearhouse store will be donated to the Honolulu-based nonprofit Helping Hands of Hawaii.
In exchange for your donation, Men’s Wearhouse will give you with a coupon for 50 percent off your next purchase.

Island Sole has opened two new stores in Waikiki.
The first store, at 2335 Kalakaua Ave., was formerly a Sanuk store managed by Island Sole’s parent company, The Art Source Inc. The re-branded store features beach and lifestyle brands such as Sanuk and Olukai, with more brands coming soon.
Just down the street at Waikiki Beach Walk, Island Sole also unveiled Island Sole Mates, carrying boots, slippers and shoes from UGG Australia.
The Ala Moana Center Island Sole also has a new location: on the mall level near Centerstage. The company’s current store will remain open through October, for those already accustomed to finding the store in the Nordstrom wing, mall level.
