It was really warm and stuffy in the Mackage showroom in the Garment District when I stopped in Monday evening to check out the coats.Â The space wasn’t crowded – a smattering of shoppers were browsing the racks.Â A few of them tried on some of the wool coats despite the heat.Â With today’s projected forecast at 85-degrees, let’s hope they turn on the air conditioner.Â IfÂ you’re looking for a winter or leather coat, you’ll find quite a few choices here.Â Let’s start with the Mackage raincoats:Â short nylon coats are $115; the full length ones are $135.Â The Mackage leather coats hover in price between $300 to $350, depending on style and length.Â Mackage winter coats made of wool were going for under $300.Â Soia & Kyo coats were under $300 for leather.
In the same showroom, I found more warm-weather appropriate clothing in the Candela NYC section.Â Here you’ll find feminine tops and dresses – for day and evening.Â Many of the pieces are accented with lace or embellished with beading.Â A lace mini dress caught my eye as well as a lace top ($50 each).Â There was also khaki and black canvas stud jackets ($100).Â A limited selection of strappy sandals and shoes were up for grabs for $100.Â The leather belts (made in Argentina) were a steal for $20.Â The showroom’s sale ends today at 7pm.Â It’s CASH only.
