Helmut Lang's sample sale kicks off this Sunday, December 2nd at Clothing Line in the Garment District. The merch—all women's—is discounted up to 60%, which makes dresses $145 and blazers $345. You'll also be able to pick up some styes of those celebrated leather jackets for $475. Check out some highlights in the slideshow above.
How crowded should you expected the sale to be? Well, this summer, things were relatively quiet at the Clothing Line blow-out in July, but we found long lines at the Chelsea Market sale in May. Since this is the first Helmut Lang sale in a while, and since it starts on a weekend, you can bet Sunday's going to be a bit of a mob scene.
