Spring is the time to migrate north — if you follow the flock.
Harbingers Jesse Finkelstein and Katie King of label JF & Son are expectedly early with their store’s Nolita-to-Village shift this weekend.
The new digs coincide with the debut of a home line: Lay hands on a mountain of ikat and batik pillows now; bed linens, rugs, curtains, and upholstery (custom order now) will arrive soon. A fortuitously timed collaboration of cheerfully bordered, circle-stitched quilts with artist Ulrike Müller is also in stock.
All textiles are designed and produced in-house, and Finkelstein let slip that they’ll be framing unused fabric squares flush with beading, sequins, and embroidery.
Spring clothing — in gauzy nude-pink silk with turned-out seams, longer hemlines, beaded collars, and laser-cutout patterns (another collab, with Queens-based nonprofit NYDesigns) — is trickling in.
And it’s bound to fly off the racks.
