The Launch of Our Calypso St. Barth Boutique

Nothing brightens our mood like this island-inspired line. We’ve been dying to offer them on Rue forever (wish granted!) – and their gorgeous colors and interesting drapery are perenially on our wish list. On par with a trip to the French Caribbean, these pieces combine jet-set sophistication with breezy bohemian style.

Creative Director Elisa Miller told us her vision comes from some serious hemisphere-hopping. “It all starts with an inspirational trip somewhere colorful and exotic. I follow my instinct and look for new and beautiful colors, fabrics, and silhouettes.” Right now, she’s drawing inspiration from a trip to India. “Everything looks brighter and more saturated in the Indian light. I love the individual character and soulful touches they add to the pieces.”

Wherever we go (be it tropical or local), this beachy brand’s debut on Rue guarantees a chic (and colorful) landing. Happy shopping!

Our Calypso St. Barth Boutique opens Monday, December 12, 2011 11AM ET.
