This morning in Chelsea, a slew of shoppers started their week with a good old-fashioned sample sale line. The Catherine Malandrino sale opens at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 10am, but when we surveyed the scene at 8, we found some 80 to 100 people waiting to get into the friends-and-family preview. They didn't have to wait long—by now the whole line has disappeared—but if this is any indication, the place is going to be a madhouse all day.
