This one was a last-minute add… New York based womenswear brand, RHIÉ, decided earlier this week that they would be hosting a sample sale which started yesterday (Thursday).  It’s taking place at its West Village boutique and goes through tomorrow, Saturday, December 1.

If you’ve read other reviews we’ve written about past sample sales (here and here) of this brand, you’ll know that we are huge fans!

The pieces at this sale are from previous seasons (many from past sales) as well as current season items which are 30% off retail.

The best deal are the samples which starts at $35 and goes up to $70, many are one-of-a-kind.  Highlights include lots of pieces under $50 (sweaters, tops/blouses, bottoms), some coats for $85 and a couple of leather skirts for just $65. Great deals when you consider designer Tie Yamagata’s pieces retail from $400 to $995.

The catch:  sizes for most items are small (size 4) since almost everything here is a sample.

A small communal dressing room is set up to one side with a mirror. If you need help, Rie and her assistant will be around to offer advice during the sale.
