There weren’t many takers tonight at the Max Mara sale.  That’s probably because there wasn’t anything fabulous to buy – despite the racks upon racks of merchandise.  What was on sale appeared to be leftovers from past seasons.  Quite a selection of sample tops and blouses – size 6 or 8 – priced between $100-$200.  The handbags and shoes were uninspiring. The same for coats – not much to pick from.  The only deal I could find were the belts – Max Mara $49, Sportmax $23.  Disappointing sale considering the high-end brand.

Where/When: Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 West 18th St b/w Sixth and Seventh Aves. Sun noon-5pm; Mon 10-8pm; Tues 10-7pm; Wed 9am-4pm.
