Gustavia, St Barthélemy
The Original Calypso St. Barth StoreCalypso St. Barth is a high-end clothing chain with more than 200 stores in the United States. And it all started here, in a tiny store in St. Barths.
In 1992, Frenchwoman Christiane Celle opened on the island a small store called Calypso, where she was selling luxury brands and various décor items that she likes. The concept grew very popular with Americans, so much so that Calypso expanded in the U.S. Can you imagine a tiny store from a tiny island taking over America ?
The Calypso store still exists in St. Barths, but it has nothing to do with the store chain of the same name. There, you will find clothes that are not part of the "Calypso St Barth" chain. Complicated, right?
Be posh, just go there, buy something, and tell your friends that you got it from the "real" Calypso St. Barth.
