We arrived at the Acne Studios sample sale at around 1:45pm this afternoon, and made it inside the showroom at 401 Broadway within 45 minutes. When we were there, the staff was letting in 15 people at a time, usually in 15 minute intervals. Once in, we were met with a few organized racks, and a few in disarray. All of the spring/summer 2013 collection was already wiped out, and there will be no restocks.
There are a few summery dresses going for $100, and a bunch of sweaters and jackets going for $75 to $200, if you're already feeling nostalgic for winter.
The accessories are generally on one table, but they're also spread out through the center area of the sale. There's one table of shoes in differing sizes, as well as a good portion of jeans and pants ranging from $75 to $100 in bins and on racks. When we left a little before 3pm, there was no line at all.
The sale runs tomorrow and Friday, from 12pm to 7pm both days. See the dealfeed below for additional info, and check out the gallery above for some product shots.
