Shopping on St. Bart's

There are very few places on the planet that are more chic than St Barths.  This small idyllic 8 square mile island where the vivid blue sky blends so beautifully with the turquoise blue sea seems to bring the beauty and fashion out in everyone whether you live here or just visit for a short time.   Everyone looks beautiful in St Barths.   The ubiquitous and safe all black number is virtually extinct in St Barths and in its place are vibrant colours, unique prints, mouth watering sparkle and lots of fun in fashion.  In the season, you will definitely see many famous faces modelling the wonderful trends such as  Jessica Alba, Rosie Huntington Whitley, Gwen Stefani,  Beyoncé, Miranda Kerr, and Lindsay Lohan to name but a few.


Vanita Rosa  Vanita Rosa is not to be missed for anyone who loves St Barths style.  The fashion line was started in St Barth in 2000 by designer Valérie Bourdin.  She was inspired by the beautiful island landscape and her clothes as a result are truly beautiful and really stunning.  Valeria a former model uses only the most beautiful fabrics: silk, linen, cashmere, and lace of Calais are a few examples. Celebrities such as Jane Fonda and Ivana Trump love to wear the elegant and chic designs created by Vanita Rosa.


In Gustavia, boutiques line the three major shopping streets. Quai de la République, which is right on the harbour and rivals London’s Bond Street and New York’s Madison Avenue .  Here you will find designers include Hermes, Bulgari, Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Chopard to name but a few.   The other two great streets for shopping are the Rue du Roi Oscar II and Rue du Général de Gaulle.  I personally love the Carré d’Or plaza in Gustavia just off  the  Quai de la République where you will find some really great boutiques with lots of trendy and chic fashion.

The two other main shopping areas are in The La Savane Commercial Centre which is just across the street from the airport and also in the village of St-Jean where there are lots of fabulous little boutiques to explore.   Just so you don’t miss anything, it is worth going from one end of these shopping areas to the other but if you don’t have time to do that, here are some of our personal favourites.
