The Balenciaga sample sale taking place in Chelsea this week is invitation only. One of our readers was lucky enough to make it inside. She was feeling tipsy so she sent us a few photos from there… and tells us that most of the merchandise (handbags, shoes and clothing) was still too pricey such as a patent leather jacket for $3,000 (was $10,000) and a pair of shoes ($999) which caught her eye. The sale is taking place at the label’s corporate office on 542 W. 22nd Street. We hear that today is the last day. Doors close at 5pm.
