Designer Olcay Gulsen opened her first SuperTrash two years ago in Amsterdam and has since expanded to fourteen locations worldwide. The bright hardwood floors and pale-pink walls of her mini-flagship on Prince Street bring out the unabashed girlie-girl feel of her clothes, which isn’t a bad thing. Pastels and bright hues reign supreme in the form of flowing chiffon dresses and skirts and lots of leather, including a robin’s-egg-blue suede jacket with shiny panels on the sleeves. This femininity is interspersed with a work-appropriate type of streetwear, like denim moto jackets with oversize gold zippers and a neon tweed blazer with a Chanel-ish black trim. Clothing is organized along the walls by theme: sporty, business casual, mildly bohemian. Gulsen releases a “flash collection” each quarter that’s available in the store for only a few weeks in coordination with SuperTrash’s quarterly magazine, which features in-depth look books and shamelessly dishy fashion news. Pretty but basic lingerie in nude satin and black lace lines one wall, along with colorful costume jewelry and party-ready clutches. The clothes are fun and the prices reasonable, especially for the pumps, bedazzled wedges, and booties that make up the shoe collection.
