The Helmut Lang sample sale started bright and early this morning… just an hour into the sale, there was already a line at the cash register.  Here you’ll find pieces from the label’s fall 2010 collection, including some of the designing duo Nicole and Michael Colovos’ key pieces.  Fitted jackets and rabbit-collared vests (now $199, retailed from $415 to $655), shearling coats (now $799, retailed for $2,650), draped silk dresses ranged in price from $99 to $159.  There were also denim (including jeggings and leggings) and trousers (now $79 to $99).  Tanks and tees are $49 to $59.  Sale goes through this Sunday.
