Colcci at Shasa Emporium

Popular Brazilian clothing brand Colcci is available in Hawaii at Shasa Emporium! An amazing international brand, Colcci can be found in stores in the U.S. such as Kitson, Fred Segal and Urban Outfitters. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen is the face of Colcci and has been very supportive of her homeland’s clothing line. Colcci is a unique brand of contemporary designs that include sportswear and denim. (Think Diesel, Miss Sixty.) Great detailing, great fits and fashion-forward pieces—right now Shasa is carrying a Colcci animal print tank dress with an unusual-yet-wearable neckline and a caftan-style jersey top in a bold print, along with black wrap dresses and denim items. The prices range from $60 to $150—not too bad for a piece of Brazil.

Shasa Emporium, Kahala Mall, 735-5122
