While we're waiting in line outside today's Hermès sale like the plebes we are, let's allow an insider to tell us about the wonders contained therein. Per Madison Avenue Spy last night: "Shoppers who attended today's by invitation only 'private sale' report back that there were more leather bags than ever. Bags range from 40% to 60% off retail and include, Bombay, Vespa, Evelyene, Trims, Omni-Bus and many briefcases. For the first time there is a great selection of enamel bracelets that are 40% off retail. Then there are the standard ties, scarves and old ready-to-wear." [MAS; Previously]
