In Williamsburg, the dust has settled on a the first stand-alone pop-up shop devoted to The Chalkboard Tee by Class Attire, a perennial flea market favorite. Jinyen and Chris Carew, the founders of the company, have taken over the Metropolitan Avenue storefront previously home to kid’s clothing purveyor Wonderwolf.
Class Attire stocks shirts stamped with 21 different-shaped chalkboard-decals (from brick walls and cityscapes to butterflies and rocket ships). Tees are available in a dozen colors for children ($26) and adults ($31).
Brooklyn is the first stop in Class Attire’s “pop-up store tour.” “We’re going to try to hit a lot of different neighborhoods throughout the year: East Village, Lower East Side, Upper West Side, Midtown, Soho later in the spring, Noho soon,” said Chris.
Chalkboard Tees are also sold at Dinosaur Hill, Hank & JoJo, the MoMA Store and the New Museum store. Last summer, Class Attire had a pop-up inside Soho’s Treasure & Bond, which has since closed. Beginning this weekend, the brand will be back at Williamsburg’s Artists & Fleas for a long run. The last day of the pop-up is Sunday, March 30.
