Pip-Squeak Chapeau Boutique Ends Its Tenancy on Clinton Street

Pip-Squeak Chapeau was seemingly a popular addition to the Clinton Street landscape upon its arrival back in 2011. Unfortunately for fans of the tiny boutique, though, this Lower East Side flirtation came to an end last week. It was ultimately a three-and-a-half year romance with the neighborhood.
According to the Facebook page, Pip-Squeak Chapeau is currently looking for a new Manhattan location. Customers can still shop for product at the OG brick-and-mortar location in Greenpoint (99 Franklin Street).
Pip-Squeak Chapeau opened at 55 Clinton in May 2011, and is the brainchild of local fashion veteran Sveta Dresher. Much of her product – clothes, accessories, home textiles – is geared toward women, handcrafted “in small editions in Brooklyn NY from 100% natural yarns and fabrics.” Dresher has plenty of experience in the field, having provided trendy children’s lines to Barney’s and other high-end kids stores for the better part of the last decade.
