There's a little bit of something for everyone in this week's sample sales with some reliable regulars making a strong showing and a few newcomers to the circuit as well.
Starting today, one of the most consistent Sample Sale players, JAMES PERSE (pictured above) opens at 260SampleSale's new SoHo location, the former Costume National boutique at 150 Greene Street. This one is always a favorite for stocking up on casual California style basics, with Perse's famous tees at the center of the offerings. You can never have too many of his knit tops which appear in all manner of soft, preached cotton knits. Generally, the sale (which we previewed last night) has most of the things you expect to see season after season, but the more refined boutique setting allows shoppers to see everything better, so the more structured ready-to-wear parts of the offerings are much easier to discover. At the back, find an array of SeaVees sneakers and Diemme boots with a few Birkenstocks in odd sizes. Shop through Sunday.
Up at 260's Fifth Avenue home base, the store is given the premium WOOLRICH JOHN RICH & BROS. outerwear collection and WILL LEATHER GOODS for a double header. From Woolrich, there's an abundance of winter parkas and outerwear for the last gasp of cold weather or for putting away for next year. A little bit of apparel is also available including a few pieces from what's left of Mark McNairy's Woolwich Woolen Mills line. From Will Leather, there are tables full of totes and backpacks in leathers and woven fabrics all priced as marked. Shop through Sunday.
Starting tomorrow the 23rd, BACCARAT will be opening its showroom in the D&D building for a two-day sale featuring up to 60% off its celebrated crystal stemware, barware vases and other decorative items as well as crystal jewelry. Samples and stock will be available.
Also starting tomorrow in Chelsea Market, French contemporary chain ZADIG & VOLTAIRE will be headlining a multi-label sale that is also promising a host of other contemporary labels.
