I'm not sure if Newcastle upon Tyne has been chosen as one of the stores for this collection, it has in the past housed Stella, Karl etc etc, so there's a good chance it will be there. But can I be bothered with the rugby type scrum? I don't think so. The last time I arrived at around 5pm for the Stella McCartney collection and the shop looked like it had been raided big time.
An interesting choice this one, as Rei Kawakubo is a more avant garde designer than mass market. I'm sure their choice is well founded and it will be snapped up quickly and selling on Ebay within a few minutes.
