Opening Ceremony was noticeably absent from last summer's roster of sample sales, choosing instead to markdown merchandise in-store up to 70% off. However, the company has just announced that on Friday, they'll kick off their fall sample sale at 76 Mercer Street. Merchandise from the house line, as well as Altuzarra, Band of Outsiders, Jean Paul Gaultier, Proenza Schouler, Rachel Comey, Repetto and tons more will be discounted up to 90% off.
At last December's sale, the line to enter on opening day was roughly an hour long in the afternoon, so you might want to queue up early. You may also want to set aside a good chunk of the morning to shop: All of the clothing tends to be pretty packed into the racks.
