I love cashmere… just can’t get enough of it. And if you’re like me, you’ll have to check out the White + Warren one-day sample sale on Thursday. Don’t let the sweltering heat dissuade you.
This evening, I popped into the label’s spacious showroom that overlooks Bryant Park on West 40th Street. The staffers were just putting the finishing touches for tomorrow’s sample sale when one of them (Lauren) was kind enough to show me the goodies.
I must say there are lots of incredible deals here. Signature cashmere sweaters for $50 (that retailed from $195 to $265) – includes plenty of cable open cardigans (many still wrapped up in plastic), V-necks, crewnecks and a few of the stripe sweaters. Cotton and linen knits are $30, including the reversible beach sweater and the assymetrical drape top. Jackets are $40, pants are $30 and shorts $20.
Besides the production pieces, there are also actual samples starting at $10 for cashmere wrap scarves to $20 for cashmere sweaters. There’s a wide range of sizes, especially for the overstock items. Everything is organized, either hanging on racks or folded on tables and shelves. Also on offer are the cashmere travel wraps which are going for $100 (originally $275) available mainly in neutral colors.
Where/When: White+Warren Showroom, 80 West 40th Street, 3rd floor. Thursday July 21st ONLY (9-7p). Cash & credit cards accepted.
