Sir and Madame designers Autumn and Brian Merritt are poised to open their Hyde Park pop-up shop this weekend. The University of Chicago urged the couple to open the temporary-for-now shop on 53rd street, on the same block as Comfort Me Boutique and the soon-to-open Independence. All three stores will do six-month trial runs as pop-up shops, and will consider staying permanently. [DNA Info]
