Haute Hippie Signs Deal With Jamaican Resort
Haute Hippie, the brand specializing in what founder and creative director Trish Wescoat Pound calls "comfortable and sexy clothes to fly in" is heading to Jamaica! The fast growing brand has inked a deal to be the exclusive retailer at Chris Blackwell's GoldenEye resort.
The chief executive officer, Jesse Cole, said the store would open in time for the high season in mid-November and will feature an exclusive capsule resort collection. Ian Fleming once called GoldenEye home and wrote all of his "James Bond" novels there. The beautiful surroundings have also been an inspiration to others as well, including Sting, who wrote "Every Breath You Take" while vacationing there.
"Every time we've been there it's been a celebrity hangout," Cole said. "The three times we've been there, Kate Moss has been there." Cole also spotted David Duchovny and Kid Rock at the resort. "It is a really exclusive place for the tastemakers and the innovators in that rock 'n' roll set," he said.
