A last-minute add… New York based brand, Rhié, is hosting a sample sale this weekend. It starts today, May 11th and goes through Mother’s Day.

The label’s designer, Rie Yamagata, made the last-minute decision a few days ago and informed us. We were thrilled to hear the news since we’re fans, having discovered the brand at a sample sale years ago.

Rie is known for her quirky, inventive knitwear but over the past few seasons she’s created more elegant and feminine pieces (think dresses, tops and bottoms); all still innovative.

At her sample sales, I’ve always found statement pieces; standouts that one can wear to the office or to a party. When I wear her creations, I’m always complimented. They’re sophisticated yet cool!

This season’s sale will offer actual samples (perfect for the spring season) priced at well under $100. Also available will be past season stock at 50% off retail.

The boutique is in a basement in the West Village. It’s small so be patient if there’s a line outside.
