Everyone’s eyes have been on the runway this month with Fashion Week in New York, London, Paris, and Milan. Karl Lagerfeld said, "What you wear is how you present yourself to the world,” but here at Elite we think that the HOME you live in represents yourself to the world. Real estate comes in so many different styles – about as different as what we’ve seen out of top fashion houses this February. In the spirit of where fashion is headed for Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear, here is a collection of real estate for sale in Hawaii fit for the runway.
Deciding to go to Fashion Week London this year, Delpozo showed a 1930s inspired collection for Fall 2018 that captures the essence that is 72 Lae Place Paia, Maui home. Built in 1937 and recently updated, this oceanside cottage on one acre is a rare find. There is something effortlessly chic about the seaside cottage that makes you want to sip a Bee’s Knees while looking out on the ocean from the lanai.
Dior’s Paris Fashion Week Fall 2018 collection was all about the 1960s. Influenced by France’s 1968 student protests, these far-out looks would be right at home in 960 Front Street Lahaina, Maui. This pad has outstanding views of Molokai and Lanai from the front and mountain views from behind. Modern retro architecture and furnishings are a hot trend right now! You’ll feel groovy when you call this place home.
MANAOLA showed at NYFW2017 but we couldn’t help but include the first ever native Hawaiian designer in our collection. This 72-107 Pakui St Kailua- Kona home for sale echoes the same sophistication as this eye-catching MANAOLA gown. This Kauhale Villa, designed by renowned Shay Zak Architecture, is located on the 14th green of the Signature Jack Nicklaus Championship Golf Course. The Landscape surrounding this 3,158 Sq. Ft. villa creates a tropical intimacy in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Fendi at Milan Fashion Week for Fall 2018 Ready-to-wear showed a soft palette of earthy creams and browns with great structured pieces. You can’t help but see this Hanalei custom retreat located at 5-7542 Kuhio Hwy in Hanalei, Kauai as an embodiment of the Fendi collection. Clean lines and natural finishes are the highlights of this Haena Point North Shore Kauai home. The property overlooks Kanaha Reef and the Pacific as it almost floats over the ground. There is an effortless structure to the retreat that is so rarely found in Kauai homes for sale.
The Antonio Marras Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection walking the runway at New York Fashion Week may have well been created just for this Volcano Village cottage. His show was based on a true story from the late 1800s and then turned into a fantastical fashion tale. This turn of the century styling is just simply divine with the Kalani Honua Road cottage. Built in 1930, the vintage porcelain kitchen sink with attached drainboard is just EVERYTHING. Wood wainscoting, fireplace, and wood accents throughout the home harken back to classic Hawaii. Marras and this cottage accented with red, a bold choice that just works on every level. Classic Kama’aina homes are rarely for sale in this condition.
