I don’t know about you, but it’s been really tough trying to keep up with all the sample sales this week.Â Â Another one worth checking out this weekend is the VPL sample sale where designer Victoria Bartlett’s coveted underthings and luxe RTW are discounted up to 75 percent off.
I made a quick stop earlier today to check out the offerings.Â They include a couple of racks of actual samples such as slouchy open-back knits for under $100, skirts and athletics-inspired bottoms for under $100, dresses at $70, breaker tanks for $50 and more.Â Special bins offer $10 to $30 undies and bras.Â There are also swimwear (starting at $30 for bottoms and $54 for the top). A few runway shoes are tagged at $125. Â Current season pieces are 50 percent of the ticketed price. The Opposites Poncho (sweater) is now $106 (was $265) and the DBP Skirt is $ 118 (was $295).
Where/When: VPL Showroom, 5 Mercer Street (at Howard Street); 646-912-6141.Â May 20 to 21.Â Daily (10-7p).
