I stopped into the Halston sample saleÂ on Spring Street Tuesday morningÂ and found some beautiful pieces. There were racks of actual production samples and one-of-a-kinds.
You’ll find deals on shoes, handbags and two racks of clothing. Sample shoesÂ from the fall collection are on sale for $75, including cute suede ballet flatsÂ embellishedÂ with a stylish Halston gold plateÂ on the toe. Lots of strappy high-heeled sandals were also on offer.Â Plus,Â suede bootsÂ for $150 andÂ ankle boots atÂ $100. Spring shoes are priced atÂ $185. Â One major negative: most shoes are size 37.Â A few 36, 38, 39 and 40.Â A box containing buttery leather handbags (taupe and gray) were going for just $150.Â The spring handbags were gorgeous and not badly priced $250 to $395.
As for the clothing, I found two racks of samples where tops were priced at $150, shirts $75, pants $150 and dresses $295.Â A rack ofÂ lovely evening dresses were going for $595.Â Â The showroom had lots of other merchandise on saleÂ (feminine flowy tops and dresses) but the prices for those items were a little steep.Â A red silk chiffon kimono-sleeved top for $395 caught my eye, as well as a turquoise silk chiffon top for $495.
Where/When:Â 96 Spring St., b/t Broadway & Mercer St., 2nd flr. July 7-9, Tues – Thurs 9am-7pm.
