We may be heading into the slowest part of the year, Sample Sale-wise, but some of our hardworking venues are doing their best to keep things going with a mix of seasonal favorites and unexpected newcomers this week. Here are the highlights:
Over at Clothingline in the Garment District, British shirtmaker THOMAS PINK has been holding a four-day sale which started yesterday and runs through Thursday the 21st. Do we recall seeing a Pink sample sale in the past? Not really, so this may be a rare chance to pick up some smart shirts, ties & furnishings from the label at a deep discount. This one's mainly for the guys, though a small selection of women's items have been promised.
Fans of JACK ROGERS's signature woven sandals will be heading to the label's showroom for 75% off a full size range of footwear plus clothing and accessories from a host of labels also found in the brand's boutiques. Shop through Friday the 22nd.
The big, rare event of the week is an unexpected and relatively unprecedented sample sale from the popular makeup brand M·A·C. From Tuesday the 19th through Friday the 22nd, look for throngs of eager fans to converge on the Metropolitan Pavilion for the brand's first ever Sample Sale, at least in New York. While we have often seen sample sales from makeup brands, we rarely see them from ones as big and beloved as M·A·C, so this is something of a major event. 60% discounts are promised on regular merchandise as well as special collaboration collections. Prepare to fight off crowds.
Our friends at 260SampleSale are offering a pair of summer sales that should keep two of their venues humming this week. At the main location at 260 Fifth Avenue, contemporary chain INTERMIX appears to be taking over the sadly departed Scoop NYC's warehouse sale slot. Look for 70% off women's apparel, shoes and accessories with plenty of summer time left to enjoy them.
Down at their Greene Street outpost, emerging menswear designer ZACHARY PRELL will be offering discounts on his refined, classic men's sportswear pieces. Both sales run through Sunday the 24th.
Be sure to keep an eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left for locations and hours as well as late-breaking events that we do our best to update as soon as we hear of them. Next week, look for sales from Derek Lam, Nili Lotan, Isaia, Eidos and an always welcome return of the Sferra sale.
