Yesterday's USA Today reports that two weeks ago Sir Paul paid his first visit to his daughter Stella's new boutique at 429 W. 14th Street in New York City. Stella is proud of her new establishment, saying:"I'd love to come and work in here for a week, it would be cool. I'd like to do it as a fly on the wall, though, because I'd love to hear how people react to things, without them knowing. You never believe them otherwise."In another article published in today's Los Angeles Times Stella talks about setting up shop in New York's meat-packing district:"I love the area. It has a fantastic feel and there's amazing space. It's not really closed in here. My landlord here used to deal in meat, and now he's a landlord. That says it all. It's a changing time. I don't think [the meat industry] is going to be around much longer. I feel bad for the meat industry."Stella's shop reflects her love of nature and the love of her mother, Linda. Pointing out a delicate hummingbird, Stella says:"These were my mum's favorites. Everything we put in here we designed ourselves. The fabric on the wall was hand silk-screened and designed. I really got involved with this store. It really reflects what I like to do in my work: Contrast interesting opposites; take a pristine tailored jacket and mix it with a pair of really distressed stonewashed jeans and a delicate chiffon pink top."Stella will be in Los Angeles tomorrow to launch Absolut vodka's new fashion collection ad campaign, which will feature Stella McCartney.
