Kuulei Sportswear rouge pink floral maxi dress

 

This is a 1970’s Hawaiian maxi dress by Kuulei Sportswear. This style is quite different from the Japanese vintage available in the Bijou Caillou shop. I first didn’t know where to place it, but I decided to go for it, be it only for the cool name of the brand and the unique retro Hawaiian style.
