It's a pleasantly busy sale week again as winter settles in and designers are shedding the last of their samples and overstock with a few special events for good measure.
The first bonus sale comes from TIBI, whose SoHo shop is undergoing a renovation this season. While the brand has moved its seasonal sample sales online for a few years now, it will be holding a special in-person 'Demolition' sale at its temporary shop on Wooster Street featuring past season stock and samples. Fans of the label should appreciate the rare walk-in sale opportunity through Monday.
The week's biggest event may be seasonal FIVESTORY clearance sale that, this season, can be found on Greene Street in SoHo starting today, Tuesday the 17th. The uptown boutique has typically brought its final sale downtown in recent seasons, and this season should be no different. The menswear selection is gone now, but shoppers should still look for a cavalcade of women's runway star designer labels along with a generally excellent selection of shoes and accessories. Shop through Sunday.
On the other end of the spectrum, activewear brand AMERICAN GIANT is setting up shop at 260 Fifth Avenue through Sunday featuring good old fashioned, American-made sweats and hoodies —a perfect opportunity to stock up on cozy winter duds or classic workout gear for the retro-minded.
On Wednesday the 18th, VIVIENNE TAM will be staging one of her periodic sales at her Garment District showroom featuring vintage samples as well as stock, and back in Soho, indie designers TESS GIBERSON, M.PATMOS and DARYL K are joining forces for a group sale on Crosby Street through Saturday promising up to 80% off their collections.
Finally, on Friday fur specialist DENNIS BASSO returns to Soiffer-Haskin for five days for his annual clearance including not only his legendary fur coats but also ready-to-wear, Children's wear and home collections.
