Introducing The Hive Co-working Space

The Hive coworking space

Oliver Men's Shop and De La Mer band together for a music-inspired men’s jewelry line

Mick Jagger.
Lou Reed.
You, after a couple of beers and hogging the karaoke mic.

You don’t need to be a top record seller to be a rock star. All you have to do is smell a little bit like teen spirit (try not washing for a couple days), don’t stop believin’, and maybe pick up one of these “bands” Of The Year and “musical pieces” from the De La... Read more »

Honolulu Night Market moves to its new space

Kamera Mano Shark Tooth Clutch

The style team members have always got their eyes peeled for hot finds and new style faves while we scour the Honolulu scene. Look out for the latest spoil of our fash-ventures in our new Lost and Found files.

Lost: Your edge.

You used to have a razor wit. When it came to going mano-a-mano, you could swim circles around the other beasts in the water. In fact, everyone always said you had a bite that was just as badass as your bark. But lately? You've dulled down. Gotten blunt. Tapered off.
