elle magazine awards chalk "top shop"

For the past four years, Carrie Kane and Sharon Watrous have appealed to the customer who invests in well made (but not staid) staples, such as Chloe shifts, Isabel Marant heels, Reed Krakoff cluthces, and The Row suiting. In addition to marquee brands, Chalk also stocks local labels and vintage finds. 

Projected Wait-list items: Laetitia Crahay for Maison Michel rain hats, Carven party frocks, Nina Ricci leather-and-chiffon leggings.

Vibe: Cleverly merchandised racks guide the eye from established designers to emerging talent and back again. Lucite shelving, chic floral arrangements, and oversize dressing rooms amplify the luxe shopping experience. 

Playlist: Runway-ready sounds from Lykke Li, Rhye, and Lianne La Havas
