ALOHA SHIRT, L’ESPRIT DES ÎLES

Autrefois symbole du glamour tropical à Hollywood

puis longtemps considérée comme le summum de la ringardise,

la chemise hawaïenne fait son grand retour.

  Broadcasting on Nouvelle Calédonie 1ère on Tuesday, October 3rd

Et pour nous raconter cette belle success story, le journaliste Antoine Laguerre, passionné par Hawaï, est parti à Waikiki où elle est érigée au rang de patrimoine national. Première économie de l’île après le tourisme, cette chemise rapporte 500 millions de dollars par an au 50ème état américain.

En à peine 80 ans, les chemises hawaiiennes sont devenues l’icône des tropiques et se sont imposées comme un emblème de la culture pop. Inspirées des kimonos japonais et des imprimés floraux tahitiens, portées à l’origine par les surfeurs et les plagistes, elles ont conquis le monde. Depuis une dizaine d’années, elles reviennent en force. Les collectionneurs les ressortent de leurs écrins. Reflet de la diversité culturelle des îles du Pacifique, l’Aloha Shirt véhicule l’esprit des îles.
