It's the week before Labor Day, and anyone looking for some serious Sample Sale Shopping should know better. It's the quietest (and likely to be the hottest) week of the year, and now is the time to get tickets to that Broadway show that is always sold out (except for Hamilton, which is still sold out), or slip into that restaurant that you would normally have to book weeks in advance. Still, if you must shop here are a few options to keep in mind.
Multi-designer rep SHOWROOM SEVEN started its monthlong seasonal clearance yesterday in West Chelsea, so you will have plenty of time to shop deals from up-and-coming fashion labels. Discounts are promised up to 95% off. Exactly what will reduced that much remains to be seen, but there are still likely to be plenty of good bargains to be had. Designers ripped by the showroom include, 2nd Day, Anamaria Couture, DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, EKAT, Etienne Marcel, Maliparmi, PatBo, Patricia Bonaldi, Pier Antonio Gaspari, Romy & Ray, Blumera, Erickson Beamon, Kooba, Maliparmi, Pashma Cashmere, Pellico Sunny and Punchcase by Leslie Hsu, so at least some of these labels should turn up at the sale which runs through October 2.
Sports fans looking for performance gear will be heading to 260 Fifth Avenue for the seasonal ASICS Warehouse Sale. Save on plenty of running shoes and athletic apparel for men and women at up to 80% off through Sunday afternoon.
Emerging men's label CADET (pictured above)has been gaining traction over the past few seasons with its New York-made, military-inspired sportswear. Starting tomorrow, fans can get up to 80% off Spring 2015 and past season's goods at the West Village location through Monday.
Next week, things start getting back into gear with popular sales from PAUL STUART and MILLY among others yet to be disclosed. Keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for locations and other details as well as late-breaking events.
