You know the block of 13th Street between Ninth Avenue and Washington Street that is home to the ultraclassy fist-pumping hot spot Kiss ‘N Fly, its ultraclassy fist-pumping brunch spot neighbor Bagatelle, and the light at the end of that tunnel, Bumble and Bumble’s downtown headquarters? Well, All Saints Spitafields just signed a lease to open a store right next to Bagatelle at 411–417 West 13th Street. The store, which opened its first New York outpost on Broadway this year, is leasing a 12,000-square-foot space spanning the ground and lower levels. Everyone goes bananas for the Soho store — the antique sewing machines! the asymmetrical seams on everything! — so this will probably prove yet another shrewd business move for the expanding brand. And it should balance out the block somewhat so it’s not so scary during daylight hours.
