Have you been waiting for that week when you could go to a couple of different sample sales every day —because what else do you have to do or spend money on?
Well, Shophounders, that time starts now.
Actually, it started on Sunday when LORO PIANA's seasonal discount luxury fest opened at Soiffer Haskin. As we all know even 60% off of Loro Piana's prices is often staggeringly expensive, but they have already taken a few reductions, so there's that. You can comfort yourself with knowing that you can keep whatever you get from them forever, but there is much, much more going on this week.
Anyone looking for slightly less rarefied sportswear will be hitting up the ELIZABETH and JAMES sale starting today at 260 Fifth Avenue. The Olsen Sisters' contemporary line continues to roll along, and this sale has always been a great oportunity to grab some of their style for a fraction of its usual cost.
Looking for yet another high fashion designer shoe sale where women will be rabidly waiting in line? On Wednesday the 9th, British cobbler NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD joins the New York shoe sale parade for the first time at Metropolitan Pavilion. Known for fanciful collaborations with designers like Rodarte, Kirkwood is expected to offer plenty of extravagant, ankle-busting looks. Expect prices to fall in the stratospheric Louboutin-range.
Two days only.
Need more British fashion? VIVIENNE WESTWOOD, who is having yet another in a long career of fashion moments thanks to Pharrell Williams' surprise revival of her famous "Buffalo Girls" Hat, will be kicking her seasonal sale off on Wednesday. Don't expect to find The Hat, but there will be everything else from her men's and women's collections.
Also on Wednesday, Italian bed and bath maestro SFERRA returns to Chelsea Market. This sale is a perennial favorite, and offers luxurious, high-thread count bedding as well as somewhat less expensive options from diffusion lines. This one is always worth a visit.
And there's more, all week including seasonal favorite sales from SHOSHANNA, ZERO + MARIA CORNEJO, TESS GIBERSON, MARISSA WEBB and more. Keep an eye on our ever-lengthening SALE ROLL at the left sidebar for more details and updates.
