If you don't have any sort of vacation lined up for the next few weeks, prepare for the month of January to totally drag. In lieu of a tropical getaway, we give you six alternatives to get excited about, in the form of sales. Through the end of next week, there are six in particular that we have our eye on. Read on for a rundown of each.
Helmut Lang: The brand's overstock sale at the Soho store began on Wednesday, and though it's a little on the pricey side still, the 60% off discount definitely takes the edge off the staple leather jacket and drapey dresses. [Dealfeed]
Owen:Through Sunday, the Meatpacking boutique is taking up to 70% off contemporary designers such as A.L.C., Antipodium, J Brand, Kimberly Ovitz, Ostwald Helgason, Opening Ceremony, Ohne Titel, Yigal Azrouel, and a bunch more. The shop doesn't have e-commerce yet, so for an idea on what to expect, you'll just have to swing by and have a look for yourself. [Dealfeed]
Fivestory: The Upper East Side store's off-site sale kicks off at the Blakely Hotel tomorrow and runs through next Thursday. Merchandise from high-end brands like Balmain, McQ, Chloe, Comme Des Garcons, and more will be up to 80% off; head here for a few examples. [Dealfeed]
Theory: Technically, this is Theory's fourth sample sale within the past three months, since the November sale was held in three locations. At this one, which starts Monday at Clothingline, the merchandise will include men's and women's clothing, plus one-off samples. It'll start on Monday and finish up that Thursday. [Dealfeed]
Calvin Klein: Starting on Sunday, Calvin Klein men's and women's clothing and accessories will be discounted up to 75% off at Soiffer Haskin. Expect to find a lot of tempting, classic basics. [Dealfeed]
Journelle: If intimates are what you're after, head to the Journelle sale at 260 Fifth Avenue next week for up to 50% off bras, underwear, and lingerie from La Perla, Eberjey, Elle Macphearson Intimates, Cosabella, Wolford, and Mimi Holliday. The sale starts next Tuesday, and wraps up that following Saturday. [Dealfeed]
