For anyone who grew up in the UK, AllSaints is synonymous with leather jackets and biker boots, an all-black (or nearly all-black) colour palette and a distressed finish.
Now, however, the brand is launching something a little more elevated: AllSaints Limited which, as the name suggests, comprises of garments made in strictly limited numbers. The first collection of this kind, which is titled Season 1, launches on Monday (17th October) at Selfridges but it won’t be hanging alongside contemporary brands – it’ll sit on the international luxury designer floor, alongside high end labels like Givenchy and Rick Owens. “I wanted to do a collection that was only available in that space, and I wanted people to see it who otherwise wouldn’t have walked into our store,” says AllSaints creative director Wil Beedle.
“Fundamentally for me, it’s a much more personal project, which is reflected in the restriction of the numbers that were manufactured. How AllSaints is shifting its strategy to focus on products. AllSaints is hoping a shift in campaign strategy to spotlight its products will help it better communicate to people why they should invest their shopping pounds in its wares.
The British retailer had recently focussed much of its activity around fashion and music, shunning traditional campaigns in favour of content creation since the birth of its creative film unit, which was created in conjunction with Dazed, in 2013. Now AllSaints wants to shout about its products to “tell the person on the street” why they should be shopping with the retailer. Last week, it launched a new digital and social campaign in the UK called ‘It’s up to You’ to allow shoppers to style themselves using its products without the brand forcing the idea of how they should be worn.
Using the hashtag #itsuptoyou, All Saints wants people to snap themselves wearing clothes they’ve bought at the retailer and post them to social media channels to be featured in an online gallery.
