From the looks of it, the Alexander Wang sample sale is going to be huge. Not only will the clothing be replenished throughout the sale, which runs this Thursday to Sunday, but there are over 8,000 items to be sold. 8,000 items, people! This isn't your regular grab-the-only-three-purses-on-the-table type of sale—this is more like an opportunity to play the Fill Your Closet with Alexander Wang game. And guess what? Lucky you. You're going to win.
All of the items pictured will be for sale, including Spring '10 accessories like the Mirte Laced Zip Flat Boot (orig. $595, now $238) and the highly coveted Rocco Mini Duffle (orig. $875, now $350). Resort '10, T by Alexander Wang (starting at $15!), samples/damaged goods and a few items from previous seasons are for sale, in addition to some of the less-athletic looking items from the Spring '10 collection, like the Khaki Trench (orig. $895, now $358) and Asymmetrical Denim Pant (orig. $455, now $182.)
Madison Avenue Spy got a peek at the merchandise for sale, and found the selection to be pretty good:
Rocco duffels, Lara combat boots and ready-to-wear galore. The sale is stocked with handbags starting at $150. There are TONS of Brenda hobos and mini camera cases. And yes, there are a few pairs of shoes—mostly size 37s and prototypes.Grab a friend, $200 in cash and a pair of leggings on for the open dressing room — it's on. —Carlye Wisel
