Italian high-end brand, Krizia, is hosting a warehouse sale at its MePa boutique on 14th Street… one of our readers commented, asking whether it was worth checking out. It is if you’re a fan of the label.
While there’s still plenty to be had, it’s fairly picked over. Except for a few nice pieces including knits, sweaters, blazers and coats. Apparently, the first day of the sale (Sunday) was a madhouse when most of the good stuff was snapped up. I was hoping to score on a leather jacket but only found two not so great ones. But if you spend some time going through the racks, you may spot a real deal such as a Krizia Top black wool/angora short swing coat with great detailing that was tagged at $227 (was $2,227).
The markdowns start at 60-percent and go up to 90-percent off the retail price. Surprisingly, I spotted quite a few items at 80 and some at 90-percent off. There were lots of knits (including sweaters with animal print – puma/mountain lion) going for under $100. At this point, there were only a few handbags and footwear (strappy heels) scattered about in the large space. In the back, you’ll find a rack of bottoms (skirts & pants), including leather trousers ($150) in larger sizes.
This is a rare event for Krizia. A sales associate mentioned they held the sale to move hundreds of pieces that were folded in boxes for six years. The sale goes through next Tuesday.
Where/When: 446 W. 14th St. (West of Washington St); 212-879-1211. Thru Feb 28th; Mon-Sat (11-7p), Sun (Noon-6p).
