Since 1985, the Italian brand Dolce and Gabbana is well-known for its extraordinary tailoring, original styling, luxury, innovation and Mediterranean imprint. Through their work, designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana made a flag out of their Italian character and they succeeded in interpreting and imposing their sensual and unique style on a world-wide basis.

Their desire of exporting the brand notoriety around the world conducted them to the Caribbean, where they opened their first boutique, decorated with beautiful interiors that recall the chic Italian houses of the 1950s. Designed by the American architect Steven Harris, the boutique transmits a homey “back to nature” feeling.
All the furnishings are designed to echo the tasteful character of the island: illuminated palm plants that create a seductive play of light and shadows, oases of luxury, custom tables and chairs hand wrapped in rope and upholstery in natural hemp.
The ground floor features jewellery displayed on translucent glass sculptures and here customers can find the ready-to-wear collection and accessories, hosted in wall niches. Everything is arranged on antique brass shelves and green vellum floating credenzas.
Footwear and women’s accessories are displayed on marble table tops on faceted stone bases.
With a layout that reflects the ground floor features, the second floor displays the Men’s and Women’s beachwear collections.
But the best part of the boutique is certainly represented by the Martini bar, on the ground floor.
It is an elegant and sophisticated place, a ‘hidden’ garden with walls of ipè wood and an interior furnished with tables in an array of pink and green stone as well as custom vellum. The space is meant to be an exclusive oasis, a dream place, that provides excellent aperitivos and cocktails.
