AllSaints Spitafields finally landed in DC!

09 Jul

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

AllSaints Spitafields,  young and vintage inspired British Brand, found its first spot in DC – on M street in Georgetown. On July 8, its doors opened for exclusive tours of current collections of clothing, shoes and accessories, and VIP and media previews of  what’s coming this fall, which, believe it or not, starts in store in August. Guests were extremely excited about unbelievable discounts on selected items, it was impossible to leave empty-handed.

What adds to shopping appetite is the unique interior décor: wood paneled and steel beamed floors, exposed brick walls, ram skulls and vintage industrial fixtures such as printing presses, looms and Singer sewing machines. This AllSaints signature design detail dominates throughout the store (over 200 machines are on display), and what especially wows and “showstops” is the glass wall (which is seen from the street) with rows and columns of Singers. To see that spectacular display, you will have to come upstairs in men’s department. Although the company was founded as a menswear brand in 1994, women’s clothing inevitably impended just 4 years later, and seems to flourish ever since.
