Last Call for Clothingline

Clothingline is closing its doors for the month of August.  Before doing that, the Garment district's often criticized sample sale spot is having one final sale before going on hiatus.  On offer is a mixed bag of merchandise. I thought some of the Milly items (actual samples) were worth it - feminine pieces and classic silhouettes.  I spotted some signature Mill[...]

Diesel Drive-By

Diesel Drive-By

Artsy Anna made a quick sweep this afternoon of Diesel's warehouse sale in Chelsea.  She didn't have a lot of time to browse.  She did take some photos for us and filed this report: I only had a minute to swing by Diesel this afternoon. I found the industrial 2nd floor warehouse space overflowing with the label's signature denim and urban street wear.  Be prepared[...]

Further Reductions at the Theory & Helmut Lang Sale...

Thursday is the last day of the Theory & Helmut Lang womenswear sale at Clothingline.  As I reported earlier this week, the Garment District space had loads of merchandise at bargain basement prices.  Some of it was damaged.  But if you looked carefully, you'll find some pretty good basics. If you're in the market for work attire, it might be worth stopping in.[...]

Proenza Schouler Part II

Artsy Anna also hit up the Proenza Schouler sale this morning.  We just missed each other.  She concurs that merchandise was already thinning out.  Here's Anna's report: I went to extra effort to beat the rush at the Proenza Schouler sale this morning but it was no use.  I arrived about an hour after the sale started.  While I was still getting my bearings, ot[...]

Slim Pickings at Proenza Schouler

Yesterday's press preview almost wiped out the Proenza Schouler sale. And this morning what ever was left has probably been picked through by PS fans.  I literally had 15 minutes to look first thing this morning and it was madness - the morning rush was in full force.  By 9:30am, there was already a line at the cash register.  Everything was going fast. Here's w[...]

Halston & Halston Heritage Sample Sale

I did a quick sweep of the Halston & Halston Heritage sample sale this morning. I must say there a plenty of bargains, especially with items from the label's more affordable line - Halston Heritage.  Many more deals this time around than previous sales.   That's what I focused on. In the front room are handbags and shoes. HH heels are $75, flats (ballet &a[...]

Rummage Sale at Cynthia Rowley

I felt a bit overwhelmed at the Cynthia Rowley sample sale in the West Village.  I stopped in at the end of the day Friday.  The back room of the Bleecker Street boutique was packed full of merchandise from what looked like items from past seasons, one-of-a-kinds, shoes, handbags and random items such as dishes.  I started with the racks where I found deals on [...]
