After falling in love with a windy, sleepy street in Tribeca, Bryn Asen left her job at a kids’ apparel magazine to open Tribeca Girls in fall 2005. The tiny, gray-hued fashion boutique may look grown-up from the outside, but the interior is strictly for tweens. Girls ages 12 months to 14 years delve into a well-edited selection of slouchy peasant tops, lace-edged cotton dresses, embroidered overalls, and colorful silk-screened T-shirts. Labels like Diesel, Junk Food, Sally Miller, and IKKS share space with local, lesser-known designers on the double-decker clothes racks that line the walls. Asen selects items that are hip yet age-appropriate, so parents need not worry about belly-baring shirts or saucy slogans. Paul Frank flip-flops in summer give way to soft, wooly mittens and hand-stitched scarves in winter. And the owner’s gregarious young daughter, Ginger, can be seen toddling about the boutique year-round offering Blow Pops and Tootsie Rolls to hungry shoppers.
