Joya St. Kitts Upscale Women’s Boutique Opens in the Marina Village

By Katherine in Community, Marina, Shopping

Christophe Harbour is pleased to introduce its luxury retail shops launching this month in the marina village. In this week’s profile, we’re excited to showcase Joya St. Kitts:

Named for Christophe Harbour developer Buddy Darby’s mother and sister, Joya St. Kitts features a carefully curated collection of eclectic, high-end brands from around the world including lavish caftans and tunics, woven tote bags, and bespoke footwear suitable to take guests and members from beachside to tableside.

Director of Retail Merchandising Teri Pantelakos has worked in the retail industry since she was 14. A personal shopper, stylist, buyer, and now fashion curator, she found an opportunity with Joya to make a statement.

“We had a goal to find handcrafted, high quality, ready to wear styles from around the world,” said Pantelakos. “Joya is carefully curated with that in mind, but it’s also a collection of very talented female designers with incredible stories of community, philanthropy, and empowerment.”

She scoured the far reaches of the globe to offer a hand-selected, one-of-a-kind shopping experience including brands such as Camilla, Vanita Rosa, Ruby Yaya, Love Shack Fancy, Frame, Perle by Lola, Ilesteva, and more.

In addition to its boho-chic couture, Joya has also partnered with Vikreations, a local Kittitian jewelry maker. Incorporating beachcombing treasures and St. Kitts flora into her pieces, Vikreations has created an island-inspired line of jewelry that is a perfect complement to Joya fashion.

Joya St. Kitts is located in the marina village at Christophe Harbour. The boutique opens December 21, 2016 - just in time for last minute holiday shopping. Store hours from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday and from 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm on Sunday.
