Yet another Calypso store opened in Soho this weekend, Calypso St. Barth au Marché.  The newly renovated store which replaced the brand’s former outlet is inspired by Parisian summer markets.  You’ll find classic Calypso pieces such as brightly-colored silk dresses and tops, gauze tunics, cotton tees, and cashmere cardigans.  Also on offer are rare finds such as vintage Levi’s and other hip designer pieces.

Most of the merchandise was on sale (up to 60% off) when I checked out the new boutique on Saturday afternoon.  A silk cap sleeve waist-tie blouse is $29.  The silk dresses were just over $100.  Colorful cotton tees were under $50.  Cashmere sweaters were between $100-$150.  They were giving an extra 20% off sale merchandise over the weekend.  The sales staff said they weren’t sure how long that discount would be on offer.

A sales person told me the label replaced the outlet there because it has changed its concept.  According to her, their plan is to bring in new merchandise every month, offering the brand’s classics plus some unique items. The store is located at 426 Broome St., nr. Lafayette St.; 10–6.
