Weekend Picks - Saturday, April 6

Late adds to Lei Chic's guide to the weekend's best events

Lei Chic Shop
Buy and Cellar
The first Anthropologie piece designed by Lanikai Pot and Plant founder Mary Pat is now for sale. The Hawaiian Salt Cellar Set includes a 3 oz. stoneware cellar, sinamay bag and bamboo spoon. "I wanted to bring the sea to the salt in the pot," Pat explained. "I used a clay with little specks of fired clay in it... like the sands of Lanikai. The image that I etched onto the plaster is my perception of the ocean, then I handpainted it with three different stains of turquoise for a (watery) look."
Details: $34, available here.

Lei Chic Shop
Frame of Mine
If you stopped by Barrio Vintage last night, you may have noticed some new artwork on the walls. Owners Bradley Rhea and Jonathan Saupe put up a slew of gorgeous vintage frames (ask about the one from the late 1800s) that showcase colorful fabric scraps salvaged during their buying trips.
Where: Barrio Vintage, 1160 Nuuanu Ave.
Details: Prices range from $20-$100 depending on size and quality.

Wardrobe Update
- Local lines were recently spotted on two stunning supermodels: Heidi Klum donned a Tiare Hawaii maxi while vacationing (and saving lives!) here in Hawaii; Jessica Michibata wore maxis by both Tiare Hawaii and Gillia at the Malaysian Grand Prix Formula One World Championship. FYI, Jessica is well-versed in all things local. Find out why in this exclusive interview for HONOLULU Shops.
