The DKNY sample sale opens to the public today at 260 Fifth Avenue. Sunday afternoon, sale organizers held a preview, which we attended, hoping to find a few Collection pieces…
There’s lots of merchandise to be had here – most of the selection is women’s goods (DKNY, pureDKNY and DKNY JEANS). Sale pricing is fairly good. We found most items at $50 and below.
The deals included sweaters ($50), shirts/blouses ($40), bottoms/knits & tees ($30). The coats and jackets found hanging on racks along a wall were $125, except for leather which a bit more. We spotted a few leather jackets at $247 and short black leather skirts at $350.
There were several racks of men’s merchandise – knits/shirts/pants/denim at $30, sweaters at $50 and coats/jackets at $125. There were also a very limited selection of dress shoes ($50) and sneakers ($30) on the side.
Women’s shoes are found in the back of the space organized by size. The selection is fairly random some platforms, flats and sneakers for $30 and a few boots and booties for $50. Near the cash registers were leather belts ($50) which were getting a lot of attention and a few handbags ($75).
Unfortunately, there were no Collection pieces as we had hoped. If you went to the last sample sale, you’ll recall a couple of racks of Donna Karan signature jersey dresses for $125 (orig. $1,295+). Not this time, tho.
