They'll be quite literally giving it away at the upcoming Helmut Lang sample sale. To incentivize shoppers, Clothingline—the venue hosting the sale—sent out an e-mail declaring, "FREE Helmut Lang bra or tank top with any purchase." The brand has been doing funky asymmetrical bras as layering pieces for a few seasons (see above)—maybe they produced more one-shoulder jersey bras than the market demanded?
The Clothingline e-mail further informs that sizes from 00 through 12 will be available and that, "prices are AMAZING!!!" We heard previously that the discount would be 60% off, with dresses at $119 and leather for $399. Are the prices—and the promise of freebies—enough to get you out of bed and onto West 36th Street at 10am on a Sunday for the opening of the sale? During a heatwave? Let us know in the comments.
