We love checking out local NYC designers and their sample sales. This morning, Apiece Apart opened to the public for its 2-day sample sale at it’s offices near Chinatown.

Even before the 9am opening, there were already lots of avid shoppers rummaging through the racks and table for deals. Many of them appeared to be fans of the brand. Think chic and simple shapes made of great fabrics. Designers Laura Cramer and Starr Hout create collections where each piece could be easily mixed and matched.

The space is small and there’s no dressing room. But if you have patience, you’ll come out with something lovely. There is a mirror situated on one corner of the cramped room where some shoppers were trying things on. That said, dress appropriately if you want to shed your winter garb to try anything on.

On offer are dresses in solids and bright prints (many of which were flowy and summery), tops, some pants (including denim), shorts, ponchos and limited selection of sweaters. I’m told that they will be restocking throughout the sale.

Pricing was $75 for pants, skirts and sweaters. Dresses were $125. Take a look at the price list in the gallery for the rest.
