The Patricia Field moving sale is overwhelming, but don't worry: You've got five hours left to shop, and we're going to arm you with a guide. From what we hear, some of the more unique pieces have already been snagged, but there are still many cool things up for grabs.
Displayed around the store are Sex and the City relics and one-of-a-kind pieces from Pat Field's personal collection. This random but enticing assortment includes Carrie Bradshaw's suitcases from the movies for $1,150, a pink motorcycle helmet signed by Pat Field, and an old-fashioned gold cigarette case. There's a plethora of signed books from Field's library, as well as three prints of the SATC ladies priced at $550. (Each of the four actresses owns one as well.) You'll also find the engraved silver charms that Sarah Jessica Parker designed for the cast as gifts at the end of each season. They cost $650.
As for the clothing, almost everything that's been featured in Sex and the City, Ugly Betty, The Devil Wears Prada, or Confessions of a Shopaholic is marked with who wore it and where it appeared. Most of these pieces are towards the back and arranged by fur, tulle, and sequins. There's a vibrant python skin Chanel jacket hidden in the mix, and a gorgeous Alexander McQueen white leather coat for $1,250.
Some of the crazier pieces we found include Pat Field's "money dress"—up for grabs for $450—as well as her bright yellow chicken costume. If you're a fan of the Tupac hollogram at Coachella this year, then you might enjoy the pants printed with Biggie and Tupac's faces for $115. Looking for an orange tiger-striped fur coat? How about a long black rubber skirt? Pat Field has you covered!
If you just want some deals on designer labels, be prepared to sift through a lot of merchandise. Everything is beautifully colored. Sizes are mainly on the smaller side (six and under). There's a wide variety of labels, from Marni, Rebecca Taylor, and Michael Kors to Gucci, Prada, and Thierry Mugler. We eyed a pretty Missoni dress for $650, a raspberry-colored Hervé Léger dress for $450, and a printed DVF wrap dress for $150.
There are two $40 shoe bins, one in the front and one in the back, mostly filled with less-expensive labels. Unfortunately, some of the shoes are really worn, though we did manage to find a pair of hot iridescent green pumps in a 7.5. The designer shoes are lined against the back wall. Most of the good stuff can be found in smaller sizes, like a pair of patent maroon Louboutins in size 7 for $325. However, there are some pretty Dior and YSL styles in the larger shoe sizes.
We fell in love with a pair of purple python Manolos with gold fringe in a size 6 for $500, as well as Jeremy Scott multicolored dotted flats with wings in size 7 for $150 . Also look out for hats and costume jewelry ($5 to $35) in the mix. Scarves range from $35 to $75 and are located in bins towards the front along with a variety of belts.
The sale runs through 10pm at INA (15 Bleecker Street at Elizabeth.) Happy shopping!
