WEST VILLAGE—Longtime bicycle fan Cynthia Rowley (she's known for pedaling down the runway at her shows) has produced a "bicycle built for three" for Mother's Day. The third seat is for a baby, so it's a bit of a misnomer, but still a cute idea. Warning: For the highly coordinated only. [Racked Inbox]
ONLINE—The Steven Alan sample sale is historically an epic event, and we're already gearing up to cover the Tribeca activities, which begin May 14th. But before the sale comes the online pre-sale, in which spring merchandise is marked 25% to 60% off on the website. It begins tomorrow at 12pm EST and runs through Friday, May 8th, giving us all a little cybertaste of the IRL sample sale chaos to come. [Racked Inbox]
