tokidoki, LeSportsac show aloha
Tokidoki founder and creative director Simone Legno has been coming to Hawaii for seven years while introducing his collaborations with LeSportsac, and he’s taken notes along the way.
Now his doodles have taken permanent shape in the form of his latest collaboration, Dolcezza, with the handbag brand. In Legno’s native Italian, “dolcezza” means “sweetness and honey.”
His love letter to the aloha spirit has resulted in a print full of “honey girls” practicing the hula, playing with dolphins and whales, and greeting other hibiscus- and lei-wearing denizens of the tokidoki universe, including Palette, a maraca-wielding bear; and the shave-ice-loving Unicorno.
Dolcezza is available in 15 styles, all featuring a hot-pink lining and Dolcezza-printed Palette charm.
The collection is exclusive to LeSportsac Hawaii stores at Ala Moana Center, Royal Hawaiian Center, Waikiki Shopping Plaza, Hilton Hawaiian Village and Hyatt Regency Waikiki, and at The Plaza on Guam.
