Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang & Versace Lead The Sale Week

Sometimes things just fall together, but this week seems to be a big week for sample sales from female designers. Why? Who knows, but that's how things have turned out including a few rarely seen sales that should draw out pent-up fans. Onward and forward:

It's the long awaited return of DIANE von FURSTENBERG to the sample sale schedule.
Once a reliable participant, DVF has stayed away from holding sample sales for the past few seasons. She's back, however, comfortably ensconced at 260 Fifth Avenue just where you expect her sale to be. Plan on lines.

On Wednesday, It's VERA WANG's turn to put her collection on sale on Greene Street in SoHo only a few blocks from her own boutique. Keep in mind that this is not her bridal sale, which usually happens elsewhere, but it is where you will find other gowns and ready-to-wear apparel items. Vera will be sharing the space with GILES & BROTHER featuring jewelry designed by Courtney Crangi Giles and Philip Crangi at deep discounts.

In keeping with the luxury theme, Soiffer Haskin will be launching a four-day sale featuring DAUM crystal and BUCCELLATI Jewelry, Watches and Silver tableware, gifts and Hollowware.

VBH LUXURY will also be holding a five-day sale on the upper east side not far from its former boutique that is now an Apple Store. This elusive handbag label (they still have no website) is known for elaborately designed bags for day in evening often in precious, exotic skins.

It's one-day-handbag sales on Thursday with vegan accessory brand DEUX LUX in the Flatiron District and men's and women's bag company ONA in SoHo both featuring deep discounts.

Designer EILEEN FISHER is once again offering savings on her pervasively popular sportswear separates featuring both one-of-a-kind samples and regular stock in full size ranges. Find her on East 9th Street in the East Village just for the weekend.

Finally, Sunday brings a rare appearance on the sale schedule by VERSACE.
We don't know when the last time Donatella Versace has brought her main collections to New York for a sample sale was, if there even was one. Look for a strong initial response  to this sale and remember not to bring too much with you as Soiffer Haskin enforces a strict bag and coat check policy as well as barring children and strollers.

Next week, look for the schedule to ramp up with Tory Burch, LaPerla, Rebecca Taylor, a rare New York sale from Splendid & Ella Moss and much more. See our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for times and locations and the inevitable late-breaking sales.
