Back Bay’s anti-boutique, All Too Human, changes faster than the seasons.
Ch-ch-changes! Forgoing traditional seasonal collections, progressive Boston boutique All Too Human switches out its fashion offerings—as well as accompanying art and décor—every two to three weeks.
What started as a springtime pop-up boutique is here to stay—though everything inside Back Bay’s All Too Human will keep on changing. “We are really focused on Boston and being a part of Boston, but in addition we want to evolve the elements of the traditional retailer by integrating art,” says owner and Boston native Jessica Knez, the former women’s advanced designer for Bergdorf Goodman.
Artists and designers both renowned and emerging furnish the spacious men’s and women’s store. From Delpozo and Dion Lee to Sacai and Raf Simons, Knez and partner Joseph Morrissey curate a diverse inventory rejuvenated with new shipments every two to three weeks. While fashion is at the store’s core, variety and innovation are at its forefront.
As the months change, so does the artwork on the walls. In September, the space fills with hanging installations by Elaine Buckholtz and Petra Cortright’s ntkern fantasia strip sculpture (2016); in October, artists Bill Thompson, Jeff Perrott, and Daniel Arsham take center stage. “We’re younger, we’re more agile, and we’re more in tune to what is lacking in the market,” says Morrissey, previously the creative director and head buyer at Riccardi. Like fashion and art, All Too Human will continue to attract—and evolve. 236 Clarendon St., 857-350-3951
