Despite a massive rebranding on behalf of Hedi Slimane, the fall leg of the YSL sample sale is scheduled to kickoff on October 23rd. However, Mizhattan thinks that this could be the last big sale, since Slimane has been pretty dead set on revamping the company's image. Whether or not that signals an end to all sales is still up in the air, but the good news is that this one will most likely be filled with plenty of overstock from previous Stefano Pilati collections. Because, well, what else are they going to do with it?
One change this time around, though, is that the sale will be a full day shorter, with an end date marked for October 25th. Given the massive swarm of people that turned out for the June sale, we can only assume that this one will attract an even bigger draw. Our advice? Get there early, as usual, for your last chance to grab anything that still says "Yves" on the label.
