AllSaints, the acclaimed British fashion brand known for its offering of sharp edge, directional clothing, has (with a really really big banner) announced its 11,000 square-foot Chicago flagship on Michigan Avenue. Throughout 2009 and 2010, AllSaints began its U.S. expansion by launching a U.S. specific e-commerce site, 10 U.S. stand-alone stores. In addition, the brand opened 14 concessions in Bloomingdale’s nationwide and AllSaints plans to roll out 30-50 stores nationwide in the next 3-5 years including a large flagship in Washington, D.C. this June. AllSaints already has an international portfolio of over 80 stand-alone stores and 70 concessions.
All of their stores have a distinct, individual feel and identity with impressive store décor details such as wood paneled and steel beamed floors, exposed brick walls, ram skulls (the brand’s logo) and vintage fixtures such as printing presses, looms and Singer sewing machines.
AllSaints looks forward to open its doors on Chicago’s prestigious Michigan Avenue this summer. The new store will be located at 700 N. Michigan Avenue between Zara and Saks. AllSaints Chicago will offer a full range of accessories and apparel collections for men, women and children.
