While we often cover sale events of major designer brands, it’s always refreshing to check out the offerings of local NYC based labels. One such sale I attended is the Rhié moving sale being held at the brand’s studio in the Garment District. While I had spotted a few pieces from designer, Rie Yamagata, at Brooklyn boutique, Bird, I wasn’t familiar with her collections.
Here’s what she found: “There is a lot of leather on offer at the Helmut Lang sample sale in Soho this afternoon. Unlike the Clothingline sale, this iteration includes more fall-friendly pieces, all tagged and in relatively new condition.
NYC-based designer, Susan Hengst, is holding an annual blowout sale at her boutique in the East Village. The designer offers pastel-colored pieces made of hand-dyed silk (tunics and dresses), linen and super soft jersey pieces.
The Jack Rogers sample sale is taking place through this Thursday at the label’s showroom in the Flatiron. This morning, the elevator wasn’t working. Shoppers should be prepared to trek up 6 flights of stairs. Despite the hike, there were plenty of hard-core Jack Rogers fans looking through the deals.
