The large space on Mercer Street in Soho was fairly calm this morning as Theory‘s public sale got underway. It was a breeze getting in. No line and no coat or bag check.
Lots of merchandise (clothing, shoes and bags at 70-percent off retail) from the main Theory line, Theyskens’ Theory as well as Helmut Lang. While this is a sale on women’s stuff, I did spot a guy going through the shoes. He appeared to be on the phone with someone, describing the offerings.
This is being called a “sample sale.” But, I didn’t see any actual samples. Mostly stock to be had. Here’s a list of items I spotted:
Theyskens Theory: Jistor shearling jacket $598 (
$1995); the Jagat leather jacket $478.50 ( $1595); Mici wool coat $298 ( $995); Dilliam metallic brocade mini dress $223.50 ( $745) Parcos leather pants $345 ( $1150); the Yash cashmere cardigan $130.50 ( $435).
Theory: A corduroy jacket $136 (
$455); Albinibi chunky sweater $127.50 ( $425); Teofil sweater $79.50 ( $265); Minina C suiting pant $85.50 ( $285); Emery pant $79.50 ( $265); Alania basic l/s knit $31.50 ( $105), Lainnie tank $31.50 ( $105), Malory tanks $19.50 ( $65).
Helmut Lang: Fur vest $358.50 (
$1195); leather vest $358.50 ( $1195); fur cardigan $435 ( $1450); stretch knit dresses $108 ( $360); jersey felt dress $178.50 ( $595).
The footwear were mostly Theyskens Theory: Taylor boot $118.50 (
$395); Stil Boot $127 ( $425); Crop boot $148.50 ( $495); flats (same ones from a previous sample sale) tagged at $88.50 ( $295).
The dressing rooms can be found in the back of the space. There really was a lot of merchandise so if you can’t make it today, you have another week to check out the sale.
