SOHO—We could have sworn Theyskens's Theory and Helmut Lang just had a sample sale, but it looks like another one is right around the corner.

They're promising a "5,000-square-foot space full of merchandise," so it might be worth it to pay the $10 admission—or at least stop by when it opens to the public on the 13th. [Gilt City]
