Starting this Friday, the Soho boutique, Kisan, is hosting what’s being called a sample sale (more of an end of season sale). If you’re familiar with this store, you’ll know it carries quirky fun pieces from high-end labels such as Tsumori Chisato, Paul & Joe, Sonia Rykiel, Robert Clergerie and so much more.
The sale will consist of items from the store’s current spring/summer collections as well as merchandise from Kisan’s other retail outlets.
I try to make this sale if I can since I’ve often walked away with some great deals on quality pieces. During the winter sale, almost all the merchandise was under $100. This time, they’re apparently changing the discount structure – offering percentage discount (70-80% off retail) instead of “set pricing for each type of garment.”
Also on sale will be children’s wear from brands such as Bonpoint, Bonbon, Simple Kids, Caramel Baby & Child, Finger in the Nose, and Pepe Shoes. The kids stuff are a real draw at this sale because of the incredible deals on great designer pieces. At the last sample sale, I managed to find a couple of Sonia Rykiel sweaters ($25/each) for my nieces. I wonder if the deals with be as good this time around.
Where/When: Kisan Store, 125 Greene Street, NYC; Aug 8-11; Fri-Sat (11am-7pm), Sun (Noon-6pm).
