The heady scent of the oil of the Tahitian Tiarè flower gives its name to this ultra-elegant jacquard jacket-shirt with flower-motif engraved ebony buttons. The jacket is inspired by three centuries of European fascination with the South Seas. With images of Bougainville and Gauguin, from novels and then from films, like Marlon Brando on the Bounty, who happily landed on the heavenly islands of Polynesia and there found love and his exotic spouse. The Monoi Jacket captures the pleasure of a holiday: bread trees, ultramarine blue, and ocean waves.
