Language of the Birds

"My aesthetic brings together sharp New York surface design and Hawaiian-infused silhouettes. I aim to create pieces that are equal parts tropical and urbane, as appropriate for Bushwick as for Kaka'ako. "

Designer Tsia Carson, a born and bred New Yorker, went to Oahu to visit old friends. She thought it would be a quick trip to paradise, but she soon realized that Honolulu felt like home. And finally, the holomu'u, mu'umu'u, and kappogis she had worn for years were no longer out of place.

However, she saw the grand tradition of these styles drowning in a sea of cheap imitations: garments with poor print designs, graceless shapes, and inhumane manufacturing. Carson decided to create a line that reimagines classic resort wear with contemporary shapes and prints for everyday wear. She named the label "Language of the Birds," a term used in esoteric medieval texts.
