Lindsey Thornburg Opening Store at 143 Ludlow Next Week

Posted on: November 9th, 2011 at 6:10 am by

143 Ludlow Street is eschewing any sort of retail diversity along this decimated strip of the Lower East Side. After Reformation departed for greener pastures across the street, the store remained caged behind its security gates. Then came newspaper clippings (all Arabic) to obstruct any renovations from public view. Throughout the months-long ordeal, the safest bet in the house was definitely that the new occupant would be yet another boutique. And that’s precisely what’s happening.

Last night, the veil of secrecy was removed from the windows, revealing a team of people toiling inside.  While the innards are strikingly bare, some dresses are already displayed on hangers. And, who is this new tenant? Well, judging by the new leafing on the glass facade, 143 Ludlow is to become HQ to womenswear-slash-outerwear designer Lindsey Thornburg. This Lower East Side store is reportedly her first.
