WAIKIKI’S Luxury Row precinct on Kalakaua Avenue promises stylish shopping with a beachside twist, but there’s no need to dress up. Tourists traipsing the pavements are generally decked head to toe in relaxed Hawaiian garb — hibiscus-patterned shirts or shifts, shorts and sandals — and most international-brand stores, including Chanel, Hugo Boss, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and, that all-time favourite, Tiffany & Co, have staff more intent on making a sale than fussing over appearances. And cashed-up Australians (the flavour of the month in Hawaii) can sometimes drive a considerable bargain. More: luxuryrow.com.
