Do they have good sales? There's a new one in the town where I work and I keep going in and lusting after their knitwear. But it's so expensive.

They wouldn't cater for my size sad

But I like the flashy sign n the window

BitOfFun Mon 15-Jun-09 12:19:48

It's horrifically expensive, and everything looks like a pile of crumpled laundry [gimmer]

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Mon 15-Jun-09 12:22:25

I agree with it all looking like crumpled laundry. They have one where I live, the sales are not too good, not alot of money off.

Bad sales then, that's a shame, will have to keep lusting after from afar.

Agree about the crumpled laundry, but I really like the knitwear [stamps feet] not that I understand how to wear most of it, but it looks interesting smile

Have bought one thing only, ever, from All Saints

It is a fabulous long, thin, 100% merino wool cardigan, reduced from 75 quid to 15 quid.

Brilliant bargain and it looks cool (have never seen it on anyone else either)

I have their "Pirate" cardigan in grey merino wool. Cost about £75 iirc. You can either wear it wrapped around (a la ballet wrap cardigans), open so it hangs "waterfall" style or knotted at the front. I love it and have worn it loads. Just wish they had more colourful shades instead of everything in grey/muted shades hmm

The shop near me reminds me of some sort of nasty horror film!

littlelamb Mon 15-Jun-09 18:53:55

yy, all the dummies look like they have been hung

TheRealMrsJohnSimm Mon 15-Jun-09 18:54:48


It is all rather gothic and cool though, no? I feel about 90 years old when I go in there! IMO it is even worse than going into Top Shop

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Mon 15-Jun-09 18:57:24

It just reminds me of some dingy butchers shop/something from a Jack the Ripper movie. I do love the tartan dress though. It's a bg temptation.

brimfull Mon 15-Jun-09 19:06:02

too £££ for me and only bits of it are wearable imo..well for an old bird like me which it clearly is not aimed at

dd likes it but it is waaay out of her price league

Podrick Mon 15-Jun-09 19:10:14

I lovet his brand for the 16 - 20 age group but I can't see how many of them can afford it - who do you think their target audience is?

FluffyBunnyGoneBad Mon 15-Jun-09 19:11:28

Students spending daddy's cash! wink

brimfull Mon 15-Jun-09 19:11:28

agree the young ones it is aimed for can in no way afford it

janeite Mon 15-Jun-09 19:22:47

I've never bought anything from them but often go in to fondle the hitch skirts and bustle dresses. They are v Vivienne Wetwood looking.

Agree about the colours though (and I am queen of black and grey) and the prices. DD1 14, loves them but even Topshop is a bit beyond her budget and she has to make do with Zara and H&M on the whole!

bamboostalks Mon 15-Jun-09 19:25:15

They have some good styling but the quality is poor for the price. The clothes fall apart and wash really badly.

Horton Mon 15-Jun-09 19:29:43

I LOVE All Saints. Was in there today lusting after knitwear and T-shirts in wonderful soft gauzy cotton.

PhaseAte Mon 15-Jun-09 19:30:48

It all looks rather post apocalyptic doenst it?
liek it needs a good iron


janeite Mon 15-Jun-09 19:49:03

Was in there the other day and was amazed to find that they had cardigans with four sleeves. Now that was certainly a step too far for me, I thought.

AnyFucker Mon 15-Jun-09 20:00:27

janeite, I think you will find that was a jumpsuit grin

janeite Mon 15-Jun-09 20:01:51

Nope - it was deffo a cardigan. We looked at it from many angles (and I had an ex-fashion-designer with me, so even though I am dim, hopefully she would know!). It was very strange indeed.
