Lotty's iconic gingerbread-style boutique is nestled among the palm trees on the Caribbean Island of Mustique. Along with Basil's Bar, it 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."
Lotty B started off designing and selling sarongs which then evolved into kaftans. She eventually created a resort-wear collection for women named 'Lotty B - Mustique'. In 2008, she took over a small shop and expanded it further. Already having an established collection of silk and linen resort wear for women, she added linen printed shirts and swim shorts for men under the label 'Pink House Mustique'. The label has grown in popularity and all her collections are sold globally through their wholesale network and 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."
A note about The Pink House would not be complete without a mention of Yuoca and Patchace, the life and soul of the shop 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. We loved that Mariella Frostrup wrote in the Daily Telegraph that we are the suppliers of "....the island uniform of exquisite beachwear..."!
