The cotton/rayon vibes kick off with short-sleeve joints like the Fatu Hiva, a blue number with white flowers sporadically interrupted by little bursts of yellow and palm trees; the bright yellow Pololu, decked with blue palm trees and what look like Christmas-light-wrapped coconuts; and the Banana Patch, which boasts rows of fruit-bearing trees, and hopefully doesn't constantly become bunched.
