Hip British chain All Saints opened free-standing stores in LA and Miami in 2009, so now it's Manhattan's turn. This week, the brand announced that they'll be launching a store at 512 Broadway between Spring and Broome Streets.
Up till now, we haven't been fully deprived of All Saints' presence, since they've got a boutique inside the 59th Street Bloomingdale's. But a full-sized shop is quite a different story, especially when it's being teased in a press release that includes "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" among the design features the chain likes to use in its stores. We don't have a set opening date, but back in November the people at Bloomie's told us a new store would open in Soho in April, so think spring.
As for 512 Broadway's current tenant, Michael K, it's not disappearing entirely—just moving to a new location down on Canal Street.
