Back in September, Ellen Koenigsberg Lower East Side vintage stalwart Ellen told us she hadn't take a vacation in nine years. Starting this Monday, though, she'll finally get a bit of a breather when the team behind hip little University Place boutique JF& Son takes over her Ludlow Street shop. They'll be selling pieces from their own collection as well as Ellen's hand-picked vintage.
Also in store: Capsule collabs between JF & Son and contemporary artists, as well as a new line of leather goods done in conjunction with Absolute Classic Masterpieces. The pop-up opens November 7 with a party from 6pm to 8pm and plans to stick around until New Year's Eve.
