Our Exclusive Yu Mei Resort '19 collection was inspired by the Hollywood glamour of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. The pink palace that is the Royal Hawaiin opened its doors in 1927 with a slew of Hollywood royalty. Since its grand opening, The Royal Hawaiin has remained an icon of opulence and luxury.
Its Spanish pink stucco facade was the inspiration behind our Hawaiian Pink colourway. Beautiful palm trees surround the hotel compliment the pink and match our soft Palm Green colourway.
For this Resort season we also did bespoke gradient colours in collaboration with NZLL Tannery in Timaru. Each leather was dyed and then hand finished by spraying a second colour over the top to give it a gradient finish.
We launched this collection at our Ponsonby Lounge in November 2018, with Lillet ‘Aloha’ cocktails flowing and beautiful food from Annabel’s Wine bar.
Thank you to all the great people who made it possible - Annabel’s Wine bar, Lillet, East Imperial soda, Fourth Street home, Hustle and Bustle, Milly Hewat, Ch’lita Collins, Kizzie Amoore, Harry Gyde, Aidan Rogers, Felix Turvey and of course the wonderful Yu Mei team - we love you!
