Aloha Rag is hosting an end-of-season sale, which opens to the public tomorrow (Wednesday). Tonight, we got a sneak peek at the offerings. The AR folks were still setting up when we arrived. Most of what was out tonight was the house brand – a real mix of merchandise including knits, sweaters, coats, bottoms and more.
Margiela Boots now $321 (orig. $1,070)
We’re a bit late getting out our sales roundup for New York City… Take a look at the list below of a few notable ones taking place this week:
Let’s start with the Aloha Rag semi-annual sample sale which kicks off this Thursday. Shoppers can get up to 85% off new & old stock from current and previous seasons as well as samples from the AR’s house brand. While sale prices are never as good as we hope at previous sales, we still like to check out this sale since the store features great labels such as Saint Laurent, Balmain, Martin Margiela, Celine and more… Where/When: 545 Greenwich Street, 2A, NY, NY; May 16-19; Daily (12pm-6pm).
While the Barneys Warehouse Sale was well underway in Chelsea yesterday, another sale downtown was taking place in a much more chill atmosphere and with soothing Hawaiian music playing in the background. The Aloha Rag Warehouse Sale is being held inside a warehouse a couple of blocks north of the boutique on Greenwich Street. While the outside and stairwell looked industrial, the actual space was large, airy and bright.
Go-to shop, Aloha Rag, is hosting a sample sale starting tomorrow. The name may make you think of grass skirts and hibiscus-pattered shirts but you won’t find any of that here. The store does have roots in Hawaii where the original Rag opened in Honolulu. This modern, whitewashed boutique north of Tribeca carries a well-edited selection of American & International designers. We’re told that the sale will be featuring the following brands: ALC, Balmain, Thomas Wylde, Giuseppe Zanotti, Carven, The Row, Alexander Wang, Martin Margiela, and more. The markdowns will be up to 80% off the retail price on men’s and women’s current as well as past ready-to-wear stock.
