This sister boutique to the Soho location is outfitting, accessorizing and entertaining the hippest of hip travelers. High ceilings, glass displays, and the cream-and-tan color scheme give the store an airy, elegant hotel feel, while the semi-circular marble cashier’s desk (originally from the New York Public Library) adds a piece of Manhattan’s roots. Though OC is based around the principle of bringing international brands to NYC (the store’s name was even inspired by the Olympics), this concept shop offers NYC chicness to vacationers. Trendy toiletries are in abundance, from neon OC toothbrushes ($4 each) and Japanese toothpastes ($6) to Proper Attire condom cases designed by Alexander Wang and Jeremy Scott ($6, includes three condoms). Part of the shop’s allure are the exclusive collaborations, such as 3.1 Phillip Lim cashmere blanket shawls with matching eye masks ($200 for the set), jewel-tone Tumi luggage and travel goods (like canvas-wrapped adapters for $55), a Maison Martin Margiela feather pen circa Cher Horowitz in Clueless ($50) and Silver Lining Opticians aviator sunglasses with colored lenses ($295).
