It’s renowned for its ‘grungy, dark and endearing’ styles and patterns.
It’s that quirky, boyish look that girls seem to indulge in wearing for that extra edge. It belongs on the high street but with prices higher end it means you won’t come across five people that day wearing the same cardigan and trousers.
The customary colours of their clothes seem to rotate around coffee browns and rustic grey/blacks with a splash of colour on their imaginative patterned tees.
The most talked about and worn items are their military boots that they brought out for autumn/winter 09, whether you see people wearing them with thick socks and a pair of tights or the latest ripped skinnies they seem to be everywhere; this winter River Island and Office have brought out their version at a fraction of the price therefore can be seen on every street corner. Whilst wearing them one night I was told by a swaying man at the bar that I should quote ‘join the army wearing those’ and when asked I told him the price, his reply was ‘I could’ a got you a pair of them from the warehouse for a tenner with metal toe caps.’ Although this may have been the designers’ inspiration, he clearly has never been to All Saints.
I always find the sales girls in-store at All saints very pleasant and dressed exceptionally well, they manage to combine the clothes with high street designs and demonstrate that these sometimes-risky items are wearable and look great.
Congrats All Saints you have yet again made the high street ten times more appealing, bring on the Spring/Summer 10 collection….
