And now, a (grown-up) playground scene.
Cool kid: Newbie, we like your style. Wanna join our club?
Cool kid: Sweet. We meet at Species by the Trees, designer Erica Bradbury’s new fort and collab space with Siri Wilson, owner of Treehouse Brooklyn.
Noob: Treehouse? Do I have to climb?
Cool kid: Nah, but with plenty of Species by the Thousands jewelry, bearded man pillows, rad sketchy sweatshirts, and stationery, you will socially. The shop also has spacey totem-face rings and lupine breastplates Bradbury created with neighborhood cohort Wilson.
Noob: I’m listening.
Cool kid: The clubhouse is filled with A.S.I.S. soft necklaces, Cold Picnic belts and cuffs, Sirius Lux crocheted chain baubles, and Sirius clothing.
Cool kid: Initiation is tomorrow night from 6 to 9 p.m. We’ll have drinks and nibbles from Emily’s Pork Store. Bradbury moves out come January.
Noob: Thanks for going out on a limb.
