Such a fun day on Mustique shooting our first piece for Lotty B Limited Edition: the Bomber Jacket. These are a couple of our favourite photos from the day of Mustique beauties Gabija Mitchell and Georgia May Jagger looking stunning as ever in Lotty B.

Launching the New Collection

 

Today we launched some of the 2016 designs on-line. It took me back to the fun times we have had preparing for this moment!

Below are a few highlights from our photo-shoots both on and off island.

The Pink House is getting a make-over!

 

 

Yesterday we pressure-hosed the roof and today we are painting.  It is the same paint we used 3 years ago which shows how sun-bleached it became.  I think I prefer the bleached look!  but it is fun to be bright and colourful again.

Mustique in Bloom

 

The island has been a riot of flowers this month but as the trade winds begin to blow in I noticed them thinning out and thought I'd better catch a few of the November flowers before they are gone.

Thanksgiving Tent Sale

 

Our annual 'Thanksgiving Tent Sale' took place as usual on the Cotton House Lawn.  

Basil's Bar shop, The Cotton House Spa shop and the Pink House all got together for a really fun day of sales.  As usual we all ended up buying each others old stock!  "One man's rubbish is another man's treasure" came to mind!  Luckily the islanders flocked down to get a bargain and we all went home lighter on stock and heavier in pocket.

New Collection Arriving on Mustique

 

Busy days with the 2016 Pink House Mustique collection beginning to arrive.  We went to the little island airport this morning and picked up 18 boxes of men and boys swimming trunks and our new beach shorts.  We can't wait to display them in the shop! - but first, counting and sorting!

Behind the scenes of our SS16 photoshoot

 
We probably had a bit too much fun shooting our new collection. So exciting to see all of the pieces coming together after so many hours spent designing the new prints and styles.

Sourcing Trimmings

 

We've been hunting around Aladdin's Caves full of trimmings in London today trying to find the perfect zips and trimmings for our new Limited Edition collection. So many beautiful choices, it's impossible to decide.

London Manufacturing

 

We've decided to produce our new Limited Edition collection in London so have spent the day meeting with different manufacturers in their workshops. So much fun to see behind the scenes and meet real craftsmen.

Pink House Mustique - A Watercolour by Patsy Fisher

This is such a charming painting by our great friend Patsy (RIP).  It must have been painted before the coffee shop was built in between the Purple House and the Pink House.  The painting belongs to Henry Channon and is on loan to me as I now have the honour of holding shop!  
Both boutiques were built by Arne Hasselqvist, but the gingerbread style and colouring was Johannah Alexander's idea and believe it or not took some persuading to be accepted by the Mustique planning committee of the day!  Originally called  'Treasure Boutique' We renamed it 'The Pink House' in 2008.  Along with Basil's Bar, it is possibly the most iconic building and certainly one of the most photographed on-island!
When deciding to start a diary, this seemed the perfect picture to open with.  
Thankyou Patsy and Thankyou Henry!
