Honolulu’s Hawaii State Art Museum salutes Pacific beauty, drawing on 5,300 works by more than 1,400 artists. In the museum gift shop, handbags by Denise Tjarks showcase new and vintage fabrics. (The Marilyn, pictured, is $65.) “They’re reversible, washable, ecofriendly, and meant to be well loved and well traveled,” Tjarks says. (808) 536-5900,
