Nestled amongst the palm trees on the Caribbean island of Mustique sits Lotty’s iconic gingerbread-style boutique that, along with Basil’s Bar, must be the most photographed building on the island. The Pink House boutique is a treasure trove of Mustique must-haves: carefully chosen designer items and our very own, much sought-after Pink House Mustique and Lotty B labels.
Lotty says: "Mustique has been my home since 1993 when my husband took up the post of island doctor. Inspired by the island’s wealth of flora and fauna, I spent the next few years designing and hand-painting silk sarongs whilst bringing up our children, barefoot and fancy-free."
Sarongs soon developed to kaftans and then a small resort-wear collection for women called ‘Lotty B – Mustique’. Then, in 2008, the little shop became available and Lotty took the plunge. She says: “When I took on the shop I already had quite an established collection of silk and linen resort wear for women, so I added linen printed shirts and swim shorts for men under the label ‘Pink House Mustique’ which has gone from strength to strength and all my collections are all now sold around the world via our wholesale operation and our website.”
Lotty continues: "Nearly 30 years on, I am still using Mustique as my muse and nearly everything I design is inspired by this little island. Local seamstresses and artisans from neighbouring islands make as much as possible for the Pink House boutique but an increase in worldwide demand has moved our main production to China where silk screen printing is an absolute metier and the attention to detail is extraordinary. Small production runs of Limited Edition Lotty B garments are also made in the UK, alongside all our packaging which is sustainable including our new gift boxes which are made near our UK HQ in Cornwall."
I recently visited the island of Mustique and the wonderful pink house which was
One of my highlights of my visit .
I absolutely loved the dresses ,men’s shirts ,Children and infant clothing Which enabled me to purchase gifts for my wonderful family,friends and myself of course ! I just wish we had an outlet in london to visit too .
I have always loved the vibrant colorful designs and now have quite a collection of the men’s bathing suits, many of which I have been lucky enough to acquire at the shop personally over the years.
Hopefully Cat Pollon and I will be down again soon, having not seen you since that delightful dinner party at Toucan Hill.
