If you can afford to pay retail for Loro Piana, then this is the sale for you. When I popped into Soiffer Haskin on Wednesday, it appeared that many of the shoppers were customers of the brand. For them, the 50 to 70 percent off retail is a great deal. Yesterday, sale organizers started offering further discounts. But even with the additional reductions, many of the items were still a bit pricey (for us). The plush cashmere sweaters are now 60 percent off (be prepared to spend around $500), scarves are down to 50 percent (the nice ones are around $400 to $500), clothing is at 65 percent (over $1,000 for blazers and jackets) and footwear, gloves and handbags are at 70 percent off. In the back, there were damaged goods hanging on a rack for 80 percent off.
Loro Piana is one of the best cashmere, extra-fine merino wool and vicuna fabric producers in the world. If you don’t mind paying for high quality clothing and budget is not in your vocabulary, then you won’t mind paying the prices at this sale, which ends today at 5pm.
Where/When: Soiffer Haskin, 317 W. 33rd St. (just west of 8th Avenue). Thru Thursday October 7th (9-5pm).
