Some high-ranking Racked informants have the low down on AEFFE's biannual showroom sale featuring high-end brands like Moschino, Alberta Ferretti, Jean Paul Gaultier and Cacharel. Yesterday's preview was pretty publicly accessible but only casually attended, while the line was—per usual—dozens deep when doors opened to the public at 10am this morning.
The menswear nook has shrunken further and includes only the various Moschino lines and some Liberty tees. Men: If you're after shoes, ties or other accessories—don't bother. Womenswear, however, is brimming and includes an extended array of shoes and bags (infringing on former menswear territory). As usual, sizes range and pieces are current or one season past with a few reruns sprinkled in. Also as usual, strong>prices are currently 20% off wholesale across the board, there is limited fitting room access and plastic is happily accepted. You have through Saturday.
