It's been a while since we've paid our friends at 260 Fifth a visit, so the Misorena sale seemed like the perfect opportunity. Everything inside the sale (well, almost, but we'll get to that later) is $29.99 and under. Forget about the labels listed as the headliners—Miss Sixty, Pencey, Energie, Louis Feraud and DDC Lab—because after an investigative look through the racks, we came up with some more enticing ones. But you have to be willing to look.
So ladies, amongst the Miami-friendly Miss Sixty, hippie gypsy Roberta Freymann, and mom-ish reruns from Louis Feraud, there's some good stuff to be found. Granted, we've seen these items for quite a few seasons now, but basics tend to have a more generous expiration date. First, there are three racks of Velvet tees, tanks, long sleeve t-shirts and slouchy cardies all priced at $29.99. Even better, within $9.99 rack of randoms, we found lots of Organic John Patrick basics, past-season Steven Alan floral button downs, a couple Adam tweedy tunic dresses and crisp linen separates from the now-defunct Operations line. There's a small rack of Pencey items priced at $29.99; we thought the navy safety-pinned tank was cute. There are also a couple structured and strapless feathered mini-frocks, too.
The guys have a lot of randomness, too (Kenneth Cole Reaction, Energie, etc), but within the $29.99 button-down shirting racks, we came across Steven Alan, John Varvatos, Loden Dager, Claiborne by John Bartlett, Operations, and one lone Giorgio Armani mandarin collar linen number. The $19.99 rack of outwear boasts some nice camel corduroy Steven Alan blazers and zip-front bombers—the only thing is that the sizes are on the larger end of the spectrum. Definitely check out the $29.99 blazers and jackets, too. We found more Loden Dager and Steven Alan and especially liked a distressed blue canvas moto-jacket by Loden Dager.
The exception to the $29.99 rule are some racks of Superdry apparel for men and women, which are priced between $30 for tees and $75 (really?) for hoodies. Accessories, sadly, aren't really that interesting—although there were some laptop messenger bags by Ro for $29.99.
The sizing is completely random for both men and women. This is basically a clearance sale for everything Misorena has in stock from the past year(s). Logistics-wise: There is a coat and bag check, but the guys weren't really strict about it. This is the one time you'll be in 260 Fifth and have some breathing room.
