Quite literally bargain basement, the ongoing Missoni sale in Soho is one of those rare small sales in NY where serious discount hunters can strike it big. Entering the bazaar-ish retail space at 440 Broadway, you then must locate the stairwell (it's back and to the right) and descend to a bare bones lower level where Missoni, Bill Blass, Cynthia Steffe and a few Diesel belts hang limply on so many racks like a garage sale. Missoni dresses max out around $600, and the scarves seem the best buy at $60-70 for silk cacophonies of color. The meager offerings from Cynthia Steffe are...meager. In the far corner, however, sits a treasure collection of Bill Blass skirt suits, in summer-perfect colors with sizes ranging from 2 to 14. For the dudes they've got a small bunching of Missoni briefs, dress shirts and lightweight windbreakers jackets. Sale kicked off yesterday, runs through Monday, May 12th.
