Maui Jim: Styled by nature
Author: Andrew McClean
New models launched by Maui Jim have been inspired by nature, such as Alika, which takes its design cues from the voyages of the Arctic ship of the same name.
The frame has titanium temples that anchor on the geometric front with baroque-style hinges inspired by a lighthouse tower. It is available in three colours: black with gold, crystal with silver, and tortoise with gold.
A cat’s eye silhouette characterises the Alulu model for a modern-yet-retro look in tortoiseshell colour options. The acetate front has exaggerated upturned corners that are offset by a flat bottom.
The Liquid Sunshine model refers to rain in Hawaii when the sun shines through an overcast sky. The lightweight model is made from a combination of nylon and MauiPure, and has a butterfly-shaped front with an emphasised brow line.
