Honolulu’s hippest gathered for the grand opening of luxury men’s mecca Sixty-One at Velocity in Kaka`ako.
THE PARTY To celebrate the eagerly anticipated launch of Sixty-One at Velocity, a haute gentlemen’s destination with both menswear and a luxury barber shop, guests indulged in old-fashioned masculine pleasures like whiskey, cigars and leather goods. THE SCENE Guests browsed Jack Mason watches and sampled an array of fine single malts and cigars while mingling amid the vintage Triumph motorcycles and dark wood and leather details that create the testosterone-meets-luxury aesthetic of the shop, which is part high-end barbershop and part menswear boutique. Miss Hawai`i USA 2015 Emma Wo made an appearance (with the most adorable plus-one of the evening, handbag-size pup Zoe), as did men-about-town, including entrepreneur Chad Kahunahana and JN Group CEO Brad Nicolai. THE HIGHLIGHTS Trunk shows and artisans representing some of Sixty-One’s most exciting brands, including NYC denim cult Jean Shop, served as the evening’s entertainment whilst bearded bartenders poured bourbon cocktails and a host of beauties clad in 1920s flapper-inspired cocktail dresses served pupus. What a night! - Margo Steines
