In addition to those fearless souls with the courage to brave the hordes at the Manolo Blahnik sale, heavily discounted wares from brands like Lewis Cho, Maison Martin Margiela, and Victor & Rolf will also be going on sale.
The chic, wearable merchandise at this semi-annual sale starts at just $20 -- and in fact, none of the current sample and past seasons' stock will cost more than $95.
Thursday-Friday, 11AM-8PM; Friday, 11AM-7PM
226 West 36th Street
Maison Martin Margiela, Victor & Rolf, DSquared
Staff USA is hosting a multi-designer sample sale in its showroom, featuring three of the most respected names in the industry -- Martin Margiela, Victor & Rolf, and DSquared. Expect to even find fall and winter gear among the sale items -- jackets will be $200; pants $100.
Thursday-Friday, 10AM-7PM; Saturday 10AM-5PM
220 West 19th Street, 11th floor
Given the typically intimate nature of the sale (typically editors and VIPs are granted access in the morning, with the adoring public getting dibs on Blahnik's gorgeous shoes in the afternoon), it's likely many who brave the line come Thursday will leave empty-handed. That probably won't stop the masses, though, and we'll be on hand to document the hysteria.
Thursday at the Warwick Hotel, 54th Street and 6th Avenue
