The front window of the downtown Seattle All Saints Spitalfields.
I went to downtown Seattle yesterday to meet up with my good friend, Chauni, who recently moved into a cute little one bedroom near the Pike Place Market with her boyfriend, Desmond (THE music guy!) and their two cats. I hadn’t seen her in a while so we just walked around town enjoying the amazing weather and talking. While we were over on the Pine street shopping corridor, I spotted this amazing looking shop called All Saints Spitalfields where Coldwater Creek used to be. It was black and had a raft of vintage Singer sewing machines lining the 20′ windows. Good thing Chauni shares my love for all things punk/steampunk because NOT going in wasn’t an option!
These four mannequins were standing watch just inside the entry…
Chauni and I started oohing and ahhing as soon as we hit the front door. We both loved the ruched dress on the mannequin in the front of the store and we also fell in love with a super soft draped dress in a pretty dove gray color. We liked the buckle infested boots on the the other mannequin in the entry and were generally pretty much in love with all the edgy, I’m too cool for words vibe oozing out of every inch of the store.
Another bit we both really liked were the lights that lined the ceiling which you can see in the shot below:
The main floor of the store (there’s a men’s area downstairs).
And I was gaga over the table displays which had mannequins casually sitting on them like they were waiting for a friend to come out of the dressing room or something:
Don’t you love how Ms. Mannequin is just chillaxin’ in such a ladylike manner?
The aesthetic of both the store and the clothing is amazing! If you like your fashion with a little hard bad girl/punk edge but with high end fabrics and detailing this is the place for you. For me, the sizing is too small (they run US 0 – 10) and the pieces are on the pricey side (a tee was $65, the drapey dress was $295) but it would be an awesome place to pick out a special statement piece.
