I was in Vegas a couple of weeks ago and saw the most amazing storefront to a clothing store and just had to share some pictures !!

The store is called AllSaints and it is located in the shopping area of the Cosmopolitan hotel.

AllSaints website

AllSaints stores have a distinct, individual feel and identity with impressive store décor details such as wood paneled and steel beamed floors, exposed brick walls, ram skulls and vintage industrial fixtures such as printing presses, looms and Singer sewing machines. Inside the store, there are so many cool features (in addition to the great clothing) ... wooden spools, industrial machines ...

Wow! So incredible! The pictures are really something to see!!! I looked at the website and blog but couldn't see anything about the SM's. I am wondering if you know who owns all the vintage SM's? Are they someone's collection or owed by the company? I am just in awe and wondering where did they get them all?

The most amazing thing is that they go all around the store and inside the store ... even the external, window walls facing the streets so that you can see them from the outside. My guess would have to have been over 2000 machines. I'm not sure any of the information about the machines, but just that the company/designer uses vintage stuff in all of their stores. What's also cool, is that they mix the modern technology in by placing a number of ipads throughout the store for browsing their merchandise and displaying other information.

No, yours work. These all looked like machines that had been used for parts and then sold.

I was in one a couple of years back in NYC. Very exciting to see row after row of these beautiful machines. The clothes are interesting also. Definately a store worth checking out if your lucky enough to be near one.
