Crowned Heads is teaming up with renowned headwear designer and clothing company, FITTED, to present a special Limited Edition ‘Paniolo Kamehameha’ cap.
The total production of the Crowned Heads Paniolo Kamehameha cap by FITTED will be limited to 144 pieces, and will make its debut at the Paniolo 2018 launch event at The Prince Waikiki Hotel (Honolulu) on February 23. The cap features a crown constructed of a woven black Lauhala fabric, a FITTED Kamehameha logo embossed on Pu leather, black denim top visor, and a Tri-Laka patterned under visor. The cap is finished with both a Paniolo and Crowned Heads logo.
“This special project drew inspiration from the Paniolo of the past, such as lkua Purdy, Archie C. Ka’aua, and Eben and Jack Low,” said Crowned Heads co-founder, Jon Huber. “These legends made the Paniolo synonymous with top cowboys of the day. What’s so impressive to me is how effectively FITTED selected and executed each element of this cap to pay homage to the Paniolo. From the black woven straw, to the Pu leather, black denim, and most noticeably, the colorful Tri-Laka undervisor (FITTED’S interpretation of a modern gingham Palaka); all the elements exist with reason and purpose.” ·
FITTED was founded in 2005 by ex pro-skater Rene Matthyssen, and Tori Richard designer Keola Naka’ahiki Rapozo. FITTED’s mission was to teach the youth the importance of embracing culture and history, while maintaining a high standard of quality, functionality, and aesthetics.
