Sarongs from Lotty B
As I write this I am about to embark on a much needed holiday. Over the past week I have been running around town to stock up on holiday essentials be it coverups, hats or swimwear. It was then I discovered Latitude 11 (www.latitude-11.com) an online shopping destination dedicated to all your vacation wardrobe needs, be it designer swim wear or resort wear.
The site is actually based in Hong Kong and launched less than two weeks ago. Geared towards the “luxe nomad,” it offers products for men, women and children. The brands are mostly high end with familiar names including Heidi Klein and Melissa Odabash (women’s swim and resort wear), Onia (men’s trunks), Pink House Mustique (men’s linen shirts) and Niin (precious stone jewellery).
I’ve also discovered a few new brands such as Lotty B, which is a favourite with Kate Middleton. The Mustique-based brand specialises in stunning handprinted silk sarongs that are super chic. It also stocks accessories like Helen Kaminski hats and must-have espadrilles by Soludos. There is also a “Lifestyle” section which features beach essentials such as towels and beach bats and balls by Brazilian manufacturers Frescobal Carioca.

Shipping is free to Hong Kong and Singapore and they plan to add new labels every month. Now why didn’t I discover it a week earlier??
