John Varvatos, Michael Bastian & Vintage from What Goes Around Comes Around Headline This Week's Sales
The Sample Sale scene may be lightening up just a bit as the Holidays approach, but there are still plenty to keep bargain shoppers busy this week including the inevitable last minute entries that pop up for a day or two. The big events this week come courtesy of 260SampleSale which is fully booked through the weekend.
At the home base at 260 Fifth Avenue, the denim and contemporary triple header of EQUIPMENT, JOIE & CURRENT/ELLIOTT starts today through Saturday the 19th making its now familiar seasonal appearance promising tons of jeans and casual wear just in time for the Holiday season.
Down at 151 Wooster Street, JOHN VARVATOS has shifted venues for his seasonal sale. This time around the initial discount promised is a whopping 80% off which is tough to beat but also suggests that there should be an abundance of goods to last through a 6-day sale. No word on whether the the John Varvatos ★ USA diffusion label will be included, but the main collection should be well represented.
A few more blocks downtown at 43 Wooster Street, Vintage specialists WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND are also staging their big clearance through Sunday. Flyers are promising pre-owned merchandise from a glittery list of coveted labels like Chanel, Vuitton, Dior, Hermès, but the best bargains might be found among the slightly less illustrious labels as well as the retailer's own private label vintage-inspired clothing line. Look for a big assortment of vintage leathers and furs as well.
Among the smaller independent designer sales, JONATHAN SIMKHAI will be offering his women's designer collection starting tomorrow through Friday the 18th in the garment district, and VERONICA BEARD will be doing the same in the Flatiron District on Thursday and Friday. The Beard sisters-in-law are promising umm to 70% off collections from 2015 and previous seasons.
Finally, on Friday, menswear favorite MICHAEL BASTIAN will be opening his showroom for the weekend featuring his signature luxury clothing and sportswear. Typically, that includes samples and overstock form the most recent season plus odds and ends from previous collections as well as collaboration items like shoes and accessories created for cookbooks and runway shows. Follow the smartly dressed gentlemen to the western end of Chelsea.
