Sample Sally explains exactly how the pricing system works at the Maison Martin Margiela, Dsquared2, and Viktor & Rolf sale on 19th Street: "At first, I was confused by the pricing. But a friendly staffer explained that the previous season goods are discounted an extra 40% percent (red sticker) or 50% off (orange sticker) the sale price. Those items have stickers on the tags. The current season items don’t have stickers on tags and are 60% off the original price." Stop by today through 7pm or tomorrow through 6pm. [Sample Sally; Previously]
