PHILIPPE STARCK

May 27, 2018

We started with a cruise down the leeward side of the island on the Lady Anne, stopped off for a sunset swim in Gelliceaux Bay, and back to Basil's Bar's twinkling lights as the day faded to night.What an exciting moment to be present as Philippe Starck puts in the finishing touches.  The island is so quiet that only a handful of us were lucky enough to be around to pop a bottle of champagne and drink to the unofficial launch, or perhaps better described as the sneak-peak to the new Basil's Bar. (The official Launch will be at the big 50th celebration of Mustique this summer)

It all looks fabulous and is a heartwarming mix of nostalgia from the old Basil's and an eclectic collection of Caribbean curiosities, and is the culmination of a huge amount of hard work, clever design and a sensitivity to Mustique's love of the old Bar and its great history.  The only thing missing was Basil himself but I'm sure he'd have given his stamp of approval!

The next morning, in full sunlight, I photographed every detail so as to make sure we maintain Philippe's design, but I won't spoil the surprise so I shall wait until the official launch to reveal more pictures!
