After seeing The September Issue director R.J. Cutler's appearance at The Apple Store, we headed over to John Bartlett's West Village home/studio for an invitation-only sample sale.
When was the last time you were offered a drink at a sample sale? It was a lesson in civility, with John mingling with customers and offering offering deep discounts on overstock and, for the slender of waist, last Fall's runway samples. It was a great chance to pick up some choice Fall items like outerwear and tablefull of sweaters in anticipation of when the weather finally cools. Of course, half the fun was getting an extended look at John's inspiration boards. Was that the model lineup for next season's show? And over there's a couple of CFDA awards to look at up close.
20% of the proceeds were donated to The Trevor Project, an LGBTQ youth suicide outreach program.
Oh. if every sample sale could only be this pleasurable.
