You might think that a muggy heatwave would be enough to keep anyone home from sample sale shopping, but even though it is the quietest few weeks of the summer there are still a few sales to hit, and think of the lack of crowds as a plus that leaves more stuff for you.
We do mean a few sales, however, mostly thanks to our friends at 260samplesale whose main space on Fifth Avenue will be hosting the VILEBREQUIN sale starting today the 16th through Sunday. Look for sporty, classic French sportswear for men including their famous swim trunks just in time for a late-summer poolside style refresh.
Downtown at their Greene Street space, French designer BARBARA BUI has returned with her popular sale. Look for savings on ready-to-wear apparel along with shoes, handbags and other accessories. Shop through Sunday.
Finally, starting on Friday the 19th, LIGNE ROSET opens its big 3-day sale featuring reductions of up to 60% off everything from floor models, overstock and discontinued furniture, lighting and home accessories.
Be sure to keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for all times and locations including late-breaking events. Next week, well, there's a Scotch and Soda sale and not much else on the schedule so far. check back to see if anyone is gutsy enough to launch a sample sale during the last weeks of August.
