Earlier this week, Stella McCartney finally opened her new Soho store after announcing eight months ago that she'd be leaving the Meatpacking District. McCartney explained to WWD over an omelette at the Mercer Hotel the reasons she ditched her MePa digs for the new spot on Greene Street.
The reality is our lease was up and we sort of questioned if we wanted to be down there or if we wanted to make a change, so we decided to come here. I've always loved SoHo. I love the Meatpacking, too, but I think it was the right time for us to move into this kind of position. Maybe a little more grown up and taking it to the next level really in terms of our neighbors.Perhaps Stella and Co. were also a little tired of looking at men dressed like this every Friday and Saturday night.
