Monique Giraud has spent her life travelling the world, and found herself in awe of Saint Barthélemy island in the Caribbean when first reaching this beautiful destination. Inspired by the colours and relaxed lifestyle of the island, Giraud wished to produce her dream wardrobe for other women to also wear and adore. With this, Poupette St Barth was launched as a resort wear brand, named after the location which inspired the label, and the nickname which Giraud has had since childhood- Poupette, meaning little doll.
Every design from Poupette St Barth is 100% handmade in the brand’s studio in Bali. Championing traditional techniques, expert artisans utilise age-honoured dying, embroidery and screen printing skills to create unique and distinctive prints for the label. Each piece is made from start to finish exclusively by one person, to ensure a truly high-quality finish and unparalleled individuality.
Producing womenswear and kidswear for the beach and beyond, Poupette St Barth offers light, feminine designs which take you effortlessly from the pool to dinner. A boho-chic aesthetic is clear throughout each collection, creating an air of laid-back elegance from longline dresses to beach shorts. Flowing lines are produced from luxurious, flowing fabrics, reflecting the carefree spirit which the brand presents. Breezy silhouettes in v-neck and off-the-shoulder designs meet intricate and exquisite prints across playsuits, mini dresses and skirts, accented with ruffle and pleat detailing. Stunning prints and vivid colour palettes are signature of Poupette St Barth, resulting in delicate designs which will prove timeless for summertime year after year.
With stores throughout the world, Poupette St Barth is found most widely in France and the USA. Their collections are also available online through the label’s own site, as well as through My Theresa and Farfetch.
