A high street staple in Amsterdam, SuperTrash has ventured beyond the Netherlands to London. Sleek and white, the two-floor store looks deceptively like an ultra-high-end designer boutique. Just one piece from each design hangs neatly on the sparsely arranged rails, meaning you can quickly get a handle on the expansive collection and spot a standout item without having to rifle through packed-in products. SuperTrash is known for its edgy occasionwear, such as faux-leather dresses, slinky jumpsuits, print-heavy skirts and pieces with decorative fringing – and it all looks a lot more expensive that it actually is. You can bag a fancy dress for around £80 (we fell for a pricey-looking brocade shift for a very fair £123) or go for a heavy winter coat at £204. A sparkling pair of peg-leg trousers were a dazzling £60, while a graphic print work dress was a steal at £68. On the down side, dresses and trousers are long and figure-hugging, seemingly designed for leggy, twiggy types. If you’re more of a mortal shape, avoid the bodycon numbers and try one of the floaty, wide-cut tops, a flattering denim shirt or one of the oversized knitted jumpers.With only one garment per design on display, you have no choice but to interact with staff if you’re after anything other than a size 8. Still, the glamourous assistants are exceptionally attentive and unexpectedly friendly.
