Marc Jacobs, Carven, Michael Bastian, Helmut Lang, Moschino, Ungaro, Alberta Ferretti —And That's Just On Wednesday Of A Big Sale Week
Sometimes, the Sample Sale season whips up like a cyclone with little notice, and this week is one of those moments. There are so many sample sales happening this week that we can barely list them all, but every venue seems to be booked, and some of them are expanding into extra spaces as well. Here are some super-standouts in a week of highlights:
A few sales have already started this week like Monday's 2-day NAEEM KHAN sale that ends today at 6 in the Garment District for anyone looking for some elegantly glittery eveningwear from this FLOTUS fave at a great price.
260SampleSale's home base on Fifth Avenue is being shared by NEST FRAGRANCES, LAURA GELLER and DEVA CURL giving shoppers a trifecta of cosmetics, hair care and home fragrances through Saturday the 5th.
Today, luxury bed and bath fans will be heading to Soiffer Haskin in West Midtown for the PRATESI sale. The legendary Italian brand is known to be pretty pricey even with the discounts, but it's an ecxcellent opportunity to invest in some sheets that will make you swear off Macy's White Sales forever.
Here is one of the biggest sale days of the season, if not the year. We suggest a getting a car and driver for anyone who wants to make the most of what's being offered. First off is a decades-old favorite, the AEFFE Showroom sale. the designers have shifted over the years, but the current headliners, MOSCHINO, ALBERTA FERRETTI and EMANUEL UNGARO make a pretty compelling draw along with the luxury manufacturer's other popular labels like Fuzzi, Philosophy by Lorenzo Serafini, Cedric Charlier and more.
Keeping on the European theme, CARVEN is returning for its second U.S. sample sale to be held in Western Chelsea. Look for three days of deep discounts on advanced contemporary style for men and women.
Hometown fave YIGAL AZROUËL will also be offering similar discounts in his Garment District showroom along with some exclusive items unavailable anywhere else.
Menswear cult favorite MICHAEL BASTIAN will be once again opening his Western Chelsea showroom through Sunday, and is promising his biggest Sample Sale ever featuring Head to toe looks for men as well as a small selection of his nascent women's collection.
HELMUT LANG is also returning to familiar terrain at Chelsea Market for what is likely to be just the first of a few sales this season, id past form still holds. This sale, running through next Tuesday, promises mostly womens's apparel with a limited selection of the men's collection available as well.
Arguably the biggest draw of the day, however, will be MARC JACOBS whose sale will be found through Sunday at 150 Greene Street. As in past seasons, Jacobs will be offering all of his product lines including the last bits of Marc by Marc for men and women and those special items generally found only at his own shops.
There's a bit of a breather today, but there is a chance for some 80% Off bargains to be found on iconic furniture designs at the KNOLL
Sample & Warehouse Sale in SoHo.
Things heat up again on Friday when the Staff International showroom in SoHo opens for three days through Sunday featuring DSQUARED2 and MAISON MARGIELA as the headliners, but often including other coveted labels as well. If that's not enough (and really why should it be?) PAUL SMITH will be taking over the spacious digs at 151 Wooster Street in SoHo for an unusually lengthy 10-day sale promising up to 75% off all of his product lines through Sunday the 13th.
That's just a partial list of all the sales happening this week. To try and keep all of those sales straight, keep your eye on our SALE ROLL sidebar for all the pertinent times and locations. Next week's sale lineup hasn't fully taken shape yet, but already, we are looking at Manolo Blahnik, Derek Lam, John Hardy, Phillip Lim and more to be announced.
