This just in: Replacing Coldwater Creek on the corner of Fifth Ave and Pine will be the London-based retailer Allsaints Spitalfields. The 13k+ space should be occupied by fourth quarter this year — in other words, right as holiday season strikes its fever pitch.

13,600 square feet. Yeah. That’s big. Good thing Allsaints sells harem pants for men, women, and children. I gotta say: I’m most drawn to the brand’s kiddie collection. While I can never really settle myself with the whole fashion-forward mini-me thing (they have the rest of their lives to be trend-conscious … can’t it wait til they’re like 12 or so?), I am fascinated by it.

Paging Hipsters With Kids…

The Seattle store will indeed carry trend-focused design-styled pieces for the whole family. Which’ll make the shop, at the very least, more useful than the Oprah Fan Club-only Coldwater Creek.
