Calypso – Cruise in Style
The glamour of St. Barts translated into fashion – that’s how I would describe Calypso’s designs. Founded by the French fashion guru Christiane Celle, Calypso is the intersection between chic and glamorous with comfortable and summery. The silk-beaded dresses, pants, tops, and skirts are perfect for an upscale island vacation, but great for a summer promenade in NYC, or an evening in the Hamptons as well. Calypso has a couple of Zen, beautifully decorated stores in NYC: 426 Broom St, 935 Madison Av, 191 Lafayette, 815 Madison etc. They also have leather accessories, shoes, bikinis and a gorgeous house line. My favorites are the candles and the house fragrances which can bring the scent of St. Barts into your own living room.
