We got notice over the weekend that the Brunello Cucinelli fall/winter sample sale kicks off today through this Friday. NO details on the discounts but last season’s sale started with 60% off retail.  Looking back at the previous sale, that discount translates to about $400 for basic cashmere sweaters, $200 for basic T-shirts, ultra-thin, soft cashmere scarves for $700+, sneakers at $300+ and so on. This sale is not for shoppers with a strict budget. It’s really for fans of the label who can afford it.

This season’s sale location has changed… it’s now being held on Madison Avenue (b/w 58th & 59th Streets). 625 Madison Avenue, 2nd Floor. Dec 14-18; Daily (9am-5pm).
