Find isle exclusives at Chanel
Among Chanel's pre-fall 2008 arrivals are a trio of Hawaii exclusive items. Stop by the Ala Moana Center or Waikiki boutiques for a look at a pewter classic metallic calfskin clutch ($1,300) that makes an easy transition from day to night.
Also available are a couple of metallic sport shoes: a weekend sneaker and stretch spirit skimmers in bright silver with contrasting black accents and Chanel logo.
The glint of sunlight on silver means your grand entrances won't go unnoticed.
