The '60s are strong this season at Tori Richard. But with a sophisticated women's holiday/resort collection driven by geometric graphics and fanciful patterns, the vibe is far more Catherine Deneueve meets Wong Kar-Wai than Haight-Ashbury bohemian. While the uninitiated may think of the famed Hawaii label only for its signature men's shirts, women's wear is fundamental to the company heritage and, in the era of Jackie O and free love, was sought-after at Bergdorf's and Saks. It's no surprise then that the Tori team didn't need to look any further than their own envy-inspiring archive of more than 20,000 samples. Not to be outdone, the Tori man is also getting a makeover with the debut of the leaner-cut and contemporary 56 line and revivals of art-inspired prints unseen for decades. - Kai Andersen

Our Tea Time dress is a cute, strapless dress with an optional halter that's super fun and flirty, and called out in Ala Moana's "Art Major" feature for its artsy, watercolor monstera print called "Island Ikat."
