So we missed a big week of sale reporting last week because, well, things happen, but there is still a full roster of sample sales happening this week, and the heavy hitters all seem to be staring today, Tuesday the 13th.
Let's start with the reliable 260 Fifth Avenue where the seasonal triple header of EQUIPMENT, JOIE and CURRENT|ELLIOTT have taken up residence through the weekend for a bonanza of contemporary sportswear and denim. Downtown at the company's sibling SoHo outlets, the guys have luxurious Neopolitan hand-tailored clothing brand ISAIA and its burgeoning little brother EIDOS taking up residence at 151 Wooster Street with discounts on elegant suiting and sophisticated Italian sportswear. For ladies, it's a walk one block east to 150 Greene Street where LA PERLA will be presenting discounts on their fabled intimate apparel and loungewear. Isaia and Equipment will run through Saturday, while La Perla gives shoppers one extra day through Sunday.
Elsewhere on Tuesday, famed British shirtmaker THOMAS PINK kicks off a three-day sale at Clothingline in the Garment District featuring dress shirts and furnishings with a smattering of women's items. At the ever-popular Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea, sporty accessories brand LESPORTSAC will also be holding a sale for three days offering discounts on bags, luggage and small accessories.
Moving on to Wednesday the 14th, exclusive milliner EUGENIA KIM will be opening her showroom for a four-day sale through Saturday featuring hats for all seasons as well as cold-weather accessories and fur pieces. Just a block east, ELIZABETH GILLETT will hold a longer running sale until just before Christmas and Hanukkah promising apparel and lots of luxurious scarves and accessories.
Thursday brings popular jeweler IPPOLITA to Soiffer Haskin's spacious venue near Penn Station through Monday bringing sizable savings on baubles ranging from sporty sterling silver to more precious pieces featuring gold and precious stones. Exclusive accessory label VBH will also be holding a two-day event at the Shelly & Renée space on West 57th Street that promises opulent handbags.
On Friday, LIEBESKIND's affordable handbags and accessories will be even more affordable for three day through the weekend at its Lafayette Street store.
Coming up: A whole week of shopping before the Holidays take over the weekend featuring a major VERSACE event and the return of old favorite GANT.
