While I was in Chicago I ran across AllSaints. It’s based in the UK and they have an amazing space, though the website does not do the clothes justice and they are a vegan's nightmare with all the leather. However, check out this amazing wall of Singer sewing machines below, among other things… A person working there said that they own something like over half of the world's Singer machines from that era. I couldn't help but wonder if my Grandmother's was in there. I later discovered that the store in L.A. has a wall of them, too.
The clothes are all mostly black and neutral, and all with this sort of literary/vintage/industrial flair. The boots were low and chunky. I love finding new stores to roam through. Another all-time favorite is Zara. Check out the cool video on their home page right now featuring gallery owner Lucy Chadwick. Her clothes, hair, and style are perfection.
