As we previously just reported, the Manolo Blahnik sample sale at the Warwick Hotel managed to begin without being listed on any of the sites that would normally cover it—including us. But thankfully, we have tipsters who love Manolos. One of them reports:
There was hardly anyone there compared to past sales. It was fantastic. Best one in at least two years. There are mountains and mountains of shoes. I can't think of one in recent memory that even compares. I came home with 5 pairs of fantastic shoes—2 of which are current season.She also adds: "I looked in the 40+ sections and after an hour you still couldn't get to the bottom of the pile," and that the staff was "shocked that the date didn't leak this year." Us too. So by the sound of it, we'd say best to head over there right now. Stay tuned this afternoon for our full report coverage, and if you're one of the few who managed to suss it out, send us your tips!
