Stella Takes Soho-------
Stella McCartney was one of the Meatpacking District’s early designer supporters, but her reign in the hood has come to an end. Today, McCartney opens her new, 5,200-square-foot, two-level Soho shop on Greene Street, where she’ll offer her main line collection as well as kids’ wear and her Adidas range. (In honor of the opening, there’s also an exclusive dog leash and collar in black grosgrain, pleather, and brass on sale for $495.) The designer is in town to present her pre-fall collection today, and this evening, she’ll host a dinner in the new shop—which is only one of the two she’s bowed in 2012. Over the weekend, a new McCartney store also opened its doors in Bal Harbour.
Stella McCartney is now open at 112 Greene Street, NYC, (212) 255-1556.
