Lotty's story

The Pink House shop on Mustique

> THE PINK HOUSE <

Nestled beneath the palms on the Caribbean island of Mustique, sits a gingerbread-style boutique that is quite possibly the most iconic and photographed establishment 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.

> THE LIFE <

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.

The early days - Lotty B - Mustique
From sarongs, to kaftans, kimonos, jumpsuits & full length dresses

Sarongs soon developed to kaftans and then a small resort-wear collection for women, until in 2008 the little shop became available. We called it the ‘Pink House’ true to its nature and a new brand was born.

The Pink House Mustique label provided a much-needed men’s collection to complement the womens Lotty B’s, as they had become known. Pink House Mustique now includes linen and swimwear for men, women and children while Lotty B continues to specialise in silk sarongs, kaftans and women’s resort-wear.

25 years on, I am still designing & painting here on Mustique where the influence of my stunning surroundings remains at the heart of my designs. Local seamstresses and artisans from neighbouring islands make as much as possible for Pink House 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

A note about The Pink House would not be complete without a mention of Yuoca and Patchace, the life and soul of the shop, who are here on Mustique, day in, day out, looking after The Pink House as if it were a much-loved child. Alongside our island labels, we stock creations from a range of talented designers. If you haven’t yet stepped inside and experienced the unique atmosphere for yourself, you have a treat waiting in store. We look forward to welcoming you.

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.
