Luxury Neopolitan designer Domenico Vacca is offering discounts for both womenswear and menswear during a 3-day sample sale. For womenswear, we originally heard that there would be cashmere for $99 and dresses between $99 and $299. However, when we arrived today, the cashmere supply was already depleted and all dresses (ranging from silk to sweater knit) are on sale for $390. There were sweaters and zipper cardigans for $89 each and suits in all fabrics from tweed to velvet are discounted to $950. Overall, although the sale took place firmly in Gossip Girl territory, the conservatively tailored womenswear probably skews a bit more Grandma CeCe than Serena.
The gentleman have more luck and flexibility in choice. Domenico Vacca is a favorite with Oscar winners Mickey Rourke and Forrest Whittaker, and his elegant suits are marked down to $1,450 (example, a slick grey pinstriped number was originally $5,900). Of course, you may need an Oscar winner's budget to make a purchase. Button down shirts in a variety of sizes and patterns are available for $140 down from $540 - a worthy investment. There will be additions to the sale arriving from area stores throughout the three days. There is a possibility of some cashmere, but definitely call ahead to double check.
