This week, Chicago got a slice of UK style with the grand opening of AllSaints Spitalfields. Located on The Magnificent Mile at 700 N Michigan Ave, AllSaints’ impressive 11,000 square foot emporium is one of the largest AllSaints’ stores in America. Your unique shopping experience begins even before you step foot into this spectacular store. Floor-to-ceiling windows grace the store’s exterior, displaying 800 vintage Singer sewing machines. Once inside, you’ll experience projection installments of look book images and fixtures made from reclaimed artifacts under a towering 42’ ceiling.
Earlier this month while traveling in England, I was introduced to AllSaints’s London store. I was instantly struck by the careful detail put into each garment. AllSaints offers something we all covet – luxury clothing without the fuss. AllSaints’ price point is slightly higher than some stores, but you won’t be in sticker shock too long. You will definitely get what you pay for: beautiful, high-quality silks, luscious, creamy leathers and soft shearlings. Hand-beaded pieces are staples at AllSaints. These sequin stunners are hand embellished in India. A beaded micro-mini skirt takes up to 14 hours of hand-crafted work. Designed in the UK, AllSaints’ merchandise is constructed by talented artisans from all over the world including Brazil, Portugal, India and Turkey.
