Sample sale season is heating up. This week there are over 30 happening in New York. Karen Millen's first NY sample sale started today. But there's more exciting news. Lanvin is holding their bi-annual private sale this week as well.
Take note this is a private sale. There is a woman with a laptop and she will ask you for your name and who invited you.
The space is a Lanvin wonderland. I was told they have a total of 7,000 pieces! The aisles are narrow and the walls are overstuffed. You will be bumping into shoppers and shoes.
Everything at this sale is 80% off. Shoes are available in sizes 35-41 and snake around the venue on the floor. Footwear includes their classic ballerina flats, sneakers, sandals and heels. Handbags and clutches are on a shelving across from the entrance. Styles include; Sugar wallet on a chain, Sugar cosmetic bag, medium Sugar bag, small shopper bag, Juji chain and clutches. Small selection of overstated jewelry is laid out on a table, including belt ropes. Another table has other accessories like hats and scarves.
RTW takes up the remainder of the floor. Menswear is also available as well as a small selection of children's wear.
