The Lenny Niemeyer sample sale gets underway tomorrow (Wednesday) in Soho. This Brazilian line is one of my go-to luxury swimwear brands. I love the fit, great colorful prints and the variety of styles (plunging necklines, cowl necks, asymmetrical one-pieces and sexy bikinis).
This season the sale is stocked with plenty of merchandise much more than in the past. There’s actual samples and stock in a range of sizes. The showroom is well organized with the swimwear separated by collection and signage indicating season/pricing.
The best deals are on the samples which are scattered throughout the space. You’ll find the current 2015 samples going for $80; 2014 samples are tagged at $40-$50 and even better deals on past season from $10-$40. The caveat for samples: sizing – all small.
The 2015 collection production separates come in a range of sizes. Pricing is as follows: One-piece swimwear go from $80-$110, bikinis at $45-$50/a piece. Cover-ups can be found on two racks ($35-$185). Also, past season items (2012-2013) can be found in bins in a range of sizes.
This is a good time to update your swimwear with summer just around the corner. The sale goes through this Saturday. If you’re hoping to score the samples, get there sooner rather than later.
Also joining the sale is LELO (think couple’s sex toys). These items are 50% off retail.
Where/When: 580 Broadway (south of Houston). May 6-9; Daily (9am-6pm).
