Like the swallows returning to Capistrano, Super Saturday is making its annual splash in the Hamptons this weekend. The hotly anticipated event benefits the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and combines celebrities with sharp elbows, deeply discounted clothing from over 200 designers, and sweltering heat.
Designers this year will include Donna Karan (who will also be there in person), Theory, alice + olivia, Diane von Furstenberg, Helmut Lang, Intermix, Scoop NYC, and Ralph Lauren. Stylist Rachel Zoe will also be manning a booth that'll include pieces from Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, Peter Som, Chloé, J Mendel, Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen, Marc Jacobs, and Marchesa.
For the best selection, be prepared to run (yes, run) as soon as they open the gate. And for the best bargains, stick around towards the 6pm closing time when anything that's still left is practically given away.
Like everything in the Hamptons, this event takes place entirely on grass?so don't forget to wear appropriate shoes.—Nick Leighton
