Your Weekend Sale Plans Include A Blowout At Industry City + Ports 1961, John Hardy & More

We have been a little late with our sale round-up this week, but we didn't want to let it pass without quickly noting some events that you might not want to miss over the weekend.

Still running through Sunday, are 260Sample Sales roster of clearance events from British contemporary chain REISS at 260 Fifth Ave, the Pure Barre sample sale in SoHo along with an extension of last week's SPYDER warehouse sale now on Wooster Street.

Another long runner, the GREATS warehouse sale in Williamsburg is scheduled to wind up on Sunday, though the selection is reported to be pretty depleted by now. Keep it in mind as one to catch early next time.

For runway-minded men, PORTS 1961 is holding a private sale of the Fall 2016 collection upstairs from the brand's Meatpacking District boutique offering  up to 80% Off through Sunday afternoon.

Starting Sunday, the always anticipated JOHN HARDY sale will be taking up residence at Soiffer Haskin for four days featuring the label's classic Bali-made woven silver and gold jewelry along with more updated contemporary designs featuring diamonds and precious gemstones.

The weekend's big event however, is INDUSTRY CITY's MARCH MADNESS event designed to draw crowds to the renewing industrial complex in Brooklyn. The event features Samples Sales from popular draws like Rag & Bone and Steven Alan along with a multi-brand sale from Clothingline and furniture from Design Within Reach. Shop long with local food vendors and other activities through Sunday.

Next week, the Sample Sale scene starts to heat up with Frye, Elie Tahari, BLK DNM and a rescheduled SJP-Sarah Jessica Parker shoe sale. Keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar for details and late-breaking events.

REVISITING RETAIL:

Anthony Thomas Melillo's First ATM Store Returns Him To Retailing

ATM-Bleecker
That big new ATM sign on Bleecker Street is not meant to alert shoppers to a cash machine.
Fans of designer Anthony Thomas Mellilo's ATM collection of deceptively simple sportswear will be pleased to discover the label's first freestanding boutique on Bleecker Street. Opened last month, the sparely designed shop offers clean backdrop for one of the collections that helped launch the unfortunately named "athleisure" trend, but should also remind shoppers with longer memories of the store that first brought Melillo attention in the late 1990s. Back when the Lower East Side was becoming an infamous hipster epicenter, Nova USA by Tony Mellilo appeared on the corner of Stanton and Ludlow Streets. The men's sportswear line brought acclaim, but the usual challenges of being an independent designer made it a relatively short lived venture. Still, Melillo persisted, helping to relaunch classic brand Generra and putting out another eponymous men's collection before finally hitting the right groove with ATM in 2012. This time, he let other retailers like Barneys present his collection, but now that he has his own store once again, it seems like a circle has finally been closed. While his designs have evolved, his straightforward aesthetic remains consistent, showing his skill for making basics that don't look boring based around cleverly designed jersey knits. ATM evokes the ongoing appetite for athletic wear without making customers look like they didn't bother to change after yoga class. Look for the new shop at 405 Bleecker Street in what was once one of Marc Jacobs' series of boutiques between West 11th and Bank Streets.

Snowstorm Be Damned! Sample Sales March On With Milly, Ghurka, Spyder & Sarah Jessica Parker

SPYDER-SS
There's little to stop a determined sample sale shopper. These are people who have been known to wait on the sidewalk for ridiculous amounts of time just for the chance to grab a coveted item at a discount, so, today's Winter Storm Stella will be just a minor inconvenience. While we don't have exact information on schedule changes due to the storm, 260SampleSale, a key promoter of such events has made it clear that they are open for business today which is a good thing since they are holding 2 notable sales this week.

Let's start however, with Clothingline in the Garment District where a big MILLY sale launched last night to run through Thursday. Expect the full range of Milly products, but don't dally. This label has a devoted cult customer.

Today, despite the sleet and ice, athletic label SPYDER (pictured above) will open its warehouse sale down at 260 Fifth Avenue. It's fitting, since performance ski and snowboarding gear is this brand's specialty. Fans and customers shouldn't be daunted by a bit of winter weather, and should be shopping through the weekend

Down at 260's SoHo location, the JIL SANDER NAVY diffusion collection is also launching its sale today featuring discounts on the luxury label's more affordable women's collection. Early reports have deep discounts putting most items well under $100 including accessories and shoes. Shop through the weekend.

Since the SJP by SARAH JESSICA PARKER shoe line shares a president with Manolo Blahnik, it's not surprising that the entrepreneurial actress is mimicking the celebrated shoe maestro's sample sale scheme. Her sale will be a one-day-only affair on Wednesday the 15th at the Warwick Hotel, so Manolo sale veterans should expect a similar set-up but perhaps without such rabid crowds. Parker's elegant shoes are something of a sleeper line, however, so plan ahead, and don't expect to simply sail in and out.

Finally, heritage leathergoods label GHURKA has switched its sample sale promoter to Soiffer Haskin which is where its rates sale will open tomorrow for three days through Friday the 17th. Look for savings up to 75% off including luggage as well as bags and accessories for men and women.

Keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for all details and any late-breaking events. Next week, look for events from Reiss, Berretta and more.

WolfordSale

We missed a week on the sale beat, but we are back to remind readers that while we are a several weeks away from the schedule really heating up again, there are still a few worthwhile events happening .
Starting today, the stalwart 260SampleSales has two notable openings. At its home base on Fifth Avenue, WOLFORD will be offering the full array of its fabled hosiery, innerwear, bodysuits and more ((pictured above). This will be an excellent opportunity for its faithful cult of customers to pick up the pricey labels goods at a discount. They will be shopping through Sunday.
Downtown in SoHo, burgeoning Italian footwear brand AQUATALIA will be discounting both men's and women's collections (pictured below) through Sunday. With new creative director Edmundo Castillo on board, this sale should be a must-see for shoe mavens.
The menswear sale run kicks off this Friday when KITON arrives at Soiffer Haskin's midtown showroom for a four-day run. The celebrated Neapolitan brand will offer discounts on the full range of its luxurious offerings including sportswear, shoes, accessories and those famous hand-tailored suits. The sale is also promising a selection of women's apparel as well through Monday.
Finally, Brooklyn boutique IN GOD WE TRUST will be staging a final clearance all weekend in Greenpoint including a host of directional young designer labels for women and men.

Be sure to keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for all sale details, locations and late-breaking events. Next week, look for sales from Milly, Spyder and the first SJP-Sarah Jessica Parker shoe sale.

Fendi Finds A Permanent Home On Greene Street

NewFENDI-SoHo
After leading a nomadic existence for the past several years, Fendi's residency in SoHo will finally become permanent when it moves into its mew location for the foreseeable future at 99 Greene Street. The fabled Roman luxury brand has taken out 6,000 square feet where it will be able to spread out and present its full offerings after occupying a series of pop-up along the same road. Joining Fendi will be Italian outer and casual wear brand Herno which has also taken space in the building. As far as we can tell, this will be Herno's first U.S. store, designed to raise the European brand's status in the U.S. from cult label to mainstay. Both stores are expected to debut sometime this spring, and they will join a host of tony brands on the block including Dior, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton and Jimmy Choo among others.

EXPANSION PLAN:

Saks Completes Its Downtown Scheme With Its Brookfield Place Men's Store

SFA-Mens-Brookfield-int
Brookfield Place, the luxury mall in what was once called the World Financial Center, finally has its full complement of anchor stores as Saks Fifth Avenue opened its Men's Store last Thursday, joining the Women's Store that debuted in the complex last fall. Like its female counterpart, the one-level store does not attempt to replicate the men's offerings of the chain's massive Fifth Avenue flagship. While in years past, a separate men's store in the Financial District would have focused strongly on suits and classic haberdashery, not unlike the Barneys New York branch (that chain's first) which anchored the building's retail section when it was originally unveiled in the 1980s. This time, there are sneakers.
Of course, they are designer sneakers, but this Saks is going for the post-suit shopper with a lot of cash. With such limited space, tailored clothing is not totally ignored. There is a distinct section devoted to chain's mostly middle-of-the-road private label collection, but the excitement is a few steps away with a multi-brand department featuring more adventurous fashion. Saks has taken advantage of the store's relatively isolated location to offer several designer labels, like Dries van Noten, Thom Browne and Balmain, to name a few, not usually found uptown where the competition is closer and designers try to avoid blanket distribution. This leads us into a shoe section that is proportionally huge in relation to the size of the entire store. The selection proves that the craze for exorbitantly priced designer sneakers has not yet crested, but, for the moment, more traditional dress shoes still round out the offerings. As int he rest of the store, the emphasis is on the high end which puts it in line with the Women's Store's focus on directional international designers over bread-and-butter brands like Ralph Lauren or St. John.
Whether both stores will thrive in a not yet proven location where they are somewhat hidden from the main shopping concourse without prominent storefront exposure is still an open question. The mall seems to have steady traffic, at least on a weekday with well-paid workers ensconced in offices upstairs for a captive customer base, and between the Oculus stores, Brookfield Place, food destinations like Eataly and Le District and the stores to come in buildings that are yet to be completed, the Financial District may be making good on its promise to become a shopping destination for more than just tourists.

SAMPLE CIRCUIT:

It's Time For Opening Ceremony's Big Brooklyn Blowout + Derek Lam & Fred Leighton

As we mentioned last week, its the off-season for sample sales, but this weekend should cause a but of a stir in the middle of the doldrums as shoppers will be flocking to Williamsburg for OPENING CEREMONY's seasonal sample sale and clearance event. This sale has bounced around Manhattan for years, but it seems to finally have found a steady location at Villain on North 3rd Street in Williamsburg, just an easy L train jaunt away. As always, the sale is expected to include a hefty amount of the SoHo retailer's eponymous collection overstock along with what's left of the store's clearance from Fall 2016 collections. Look for prices to reduce by Sunday, when shoppers with a sixth sense for finding needles in haystacks have been known to come away with hidden gems at giveaway prices. Shop from Friday through Sunday.

While nobody would be blamed for saving their pennies for that sale, there are still a few other worthwhile events happening this week. Today the 22nd, NORMA KAMALI is having another one of her signature one day sales at her midtown boutique with most items priced from $50to $100. Contemporary outerwear newcomers THE ARRIVALS are closing out their Crosby Street pop-up shop with a sale on all of its stock through Sunday the 26th. Look for wear-now savings on coats and leather jackets for men and women. DEREK LAM will be finishing off a three day sale through Thursday the 23rd at Clothingline in the Garment District featuring both his main and 10 Crosby collections. 260SampleSale is featuring its seasonal ROBERTA ROLLER RABBIT sale at its home base on Fifth avenue, and stylish sportswear from GERARD DAREL and FIGUE at its Greene Street satellite location pin SoHo through Sunday.

Finally, if you aren't into trekking out to Brooklyn this weekend but you still have money burning a hole through your wallet (and we mean heaps of money), diamond specialists KWIAT and vintage master FRED LEIGHTON are taking over Soiffer Haskin's ample showroom this weekend from Saturday through Tuesday the 28th. These are two top names in the jewelry business, so along with some discerning bauble collectors, you should expect a high-security experience, so expect to check everything except your wallet, and make sure you have proper I.D.

As always, keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for updated locations and hours along with any late-breaking sales. Next week The Shoe Box starts its epic clearance, and later on, cult hosiery label Wolford will be offering its wares.

Signs Of Sale Life With Ralph Lauren Home, Want Les Essentials & More

The dead of winter is also the dead of the sample sale season, so think of the next few weeks as a time to rest your wallet and save up for when the schedule starts heating up again later in the springtime. In the meantime, there are a few bright spots happening this week.

The folks at 260SampleSale have been keeping their venues well stocked even during the slow months. A their 260 Fifth Avenue home base, Italian footwear label BRUNO MAGLI will be in residence through Sunday the 19th offering 75% off luxury shoes for Men and Women. Downtown on Greene Street, online multi brand retailer THE LINE will be offering its final clearance goods at 75% off including designers like Manolo Blahnik, Proenza Schouler, Altuzzara and more through Sunday.

Staring today, Wednesday the 15th, the Want Agency  is holding its seasonal clearance sale in SoHo on Wooster Street featuring its core brand, WANT LES ESSENTIELS de la VIE, as well as SWIMS, TOMORROWLAND and MAISON KITSUNÉ.

Finally, the colossal RALPH LAUREN HOME sale starts up on Thursday the 16th at Metropolitan North Pavilion featuring tons and tons of stuff. Look for plenty of the designer's furniture taking up most of the space as well as his top bed and bath and tabletop collections. Home accessories and gifts are also usually featured as well as antiques and select gift items. Past sales have also included decorative items from the Ralph Lauren visual merchandising warehouse as well as bolts of raw decorative fabrics at deep discounts. Serious shoppers should be advised that shipping is available on site by an independent operator not affiliated with either Ralph Lauren or Soiffer Haskin, who is presenting the sale.
