Womenswear trade show Scoop will be held under one roof at the Saatchi Gallery in London’s Chelsea on February 1-3.
For the past three seasons, the event has run across two venues: the Saatchi Gallery and the Phillips gallery and auction house in nearby Victoria. However, late last year, art auctioneers Phillips relocated to new premises on Berkeley Square.
“We had hoped to have run one final edition of Scoop across both venues before launching a new concept in summer 2015, something we’ve been working on for over a year,” said Scoop founder and managing director Karen Radley.
“However, we found out towards the end of 2014 that this wouldn’t be possible, so following special arrangements with the Saatchi Gallery we’ll be showcasing the full Scoop line-up at our original home in Chelsea.”
To create extra space, Scoop has acquired access to all four floors of the Saatchi, rather than the three used previously.
“This means that once again Scoop will be offering visitors a brand new buying experience with a new layout and a host of new names among the international collections buyers have come to expect from the show,” said Radley.
Danish label Wood Wood, Sweden’s J Lindeberg and French label Paul & Joe Sister will be among the first-time exhibitors at the forthcoming edition. Other exhibitors include cashmere labels Goat and Duffy, shearling and leather outerwear specialist Karl Donoghue and Italian label Rosso 35.
Details of changes being introduced for summer 2015 will be released in the coming weeks.
