Sky's the limit
» Kelly Kaneda's $100 million goal.
» Plan B works for Bamboo Sky.
On snowboarding escapes to Whistler, Tahoe, Mammoth Lake and Big Bear, Shane Breeden and Kelly Kaneda -- two local boys who had moved to L.A. -- would often talk about their businesses, respectively, jewelry wholesale/distribution and clothing companies.
Inspired by the rapid growth of Kaneda's company, Femme Knits, and the popularity of its first brand, Scrapbook, plus Hawaii's growing fashion sophistication, Breeden came home to open the boutique Bamboo Sky with his partner, Tiffany Young.
After a successful first year on Kapiolani Boulevard, Bamboo Sky is moving from its initial 420-square-foot digs to more than 1,000 square feet in proximity to the Ward shopping complex and Kakaako's new urban residential area.
Among the lines the boutique will carry is Scrapbook.

The boutique has moved in next door to Onjin's Cafe, where Lauryn Chin wears a silk floral print top in green and black by Miss Me ($72) paired with a skinny leg gray jean by Siwy Denim ($194), and Aucoin wears a print tunic dress with rope straps by Scrapbook ($66). CLICK FOR LARGE
