Princes Square, Scotland’s luxury shopping destination, is set to unveil its first-ever pop-up boutique for young Scottish designers on Thursday 20th November. The centre has brought together eight exciting fashion figures – including Deryck Walker, recently named Designer of the Year – to create REPOSITION. The chic store will showcase original looks and cutting-edge trends, as well as exclusive works of art and unusual gifts from Scotland’s design community – but only for a limited time in the lead-up to Christmas.
From beaded tights, to stunning floor-length dresses, REPOSITION will feature fashionista favourites Graeme Armour, Bebaroque, Brazen, Jamie Bruski Tetsill, Scott Ramsay Kyle, Alice Palmer, Vidler & Nixon, and the aforementioned Deryck Walker, who have also been part of the Glasgow: Scotland with Style Design Collective and shown internationally. As well as off-the-peg items, REPOSITION will also offer a ‘style-lab service’, including custom fittings on some ranges. Future trends, next season’s colour palate and classic investment buys will all play a major part in the boutique, which will be run by PR man Chris Hunt and art curator Mutley from the SWG3 gallery.
Renowned artists and photographers, including David Eustace and Sandy Smith, will also contribute one-off pieces to buy at REPOSITION.
For city shoppers this will be the first opportunity to buy these lines from a dedicated Scottish store but they must be quick – the exclusive pop-up store will only open in the weeks before Christmas, and just from Thursday to Sunday each week.
“There’s no doubt about it; Glasgow is host to some of Europe’s hottest design talent,” said Jane Cowan, Princes Square Centre Manager. “The likes of Deryck Walker, Jamie Bruski Tetsill and Scott Ramsay Kyle have already received massive recognition and plaudits from Vogue, amongst others. Rightfully, there is much attention being paid to these designers just now, so to bring them together in one store is a major coup for the city and for us at Princes Square.
Located on the ground floor of Princes Square, REPOSITION will feature items ranging from as little as £15 to £1500, meaning that there is something for everyone. The store will be the first retail foray of the fashion collective as part of a longer-term partnership with Princes Square.
