Summer is Flowering
With summer in full swing we would like to stop and smell the flowers. It is this season in specific that flowers, both wild and nurtured, show off for the world with their beautiful colors and amazing array of shapes and patterns. It is sort of like Kong Lung Trading itself—an incredible array of colors, shapes, sizes, textures and patterns. Stop in to Kong Lung Trading today to see the flowers, smell the flowers, try on the flowers or even have a few flowers gift wrapped.
PAJAMAS BY BEDHEAD
In the late 90’s public interest in dresses declined and as Renee Claire was delivering what she considered to be her last collection of dresses to a retailer, she saw a pair of pajamas in the window of the boutique. She quickly realized that current pajama offerings lacked sophistication and tailoring. As a consequence, BedHead was born.
All BedHead pajamas are locally cut and sewn in glamorous Los Angeles, and sold at Kong Lung Trading in not-quite-as-glamorous Kilauea.
BedHead Pajamas and robes $102.00-$130.00
