August Sample Sales

You know the drill by now! There won’t be any respite from sample sale-ing this month, not if 260 Sample Sale has anything to say about it! While the other guys are taking a break, both of 260’s main venues, along with the two off-season SoHo locations will remain open in August. So what can you expect? How about a stacked multi-designer sample sale from Fivestory, the first-ever Bandier designer fitness sale, Korres returns with their summer skincare and beauty savings events, and a couple of Garment District based designers will open their doors to the public. Last but not least, say goodbye to Tamara Mellon with a major liquidation bonanza next week. The former Jimmy Choo designer announced the closure of her eponymous line (although she is rebranding as a footwear only label in LA). Either way, for us New Yorkers it’s the last time that we’ll be able to buy her luxury shoes at such low price points. Keep an eye on this page as more sales will be added here throughout the month and as always don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram for all the latest updates!
