Looks like all the complaining everyone's been doing about YSL sample sale being expensive as hell has paid off. Soiffer Haskin has already sent around an email to its mailing list that prices have been reduced—on the first day.
Given that all of the merchandise on hand is YSL rather than Saint Laurent, it appears as though the luxury brand is trying to unload its old stock—but with a discount of only 50% off, that's not going to happen. The email's as nondescript as it gets, and just says "further reductions taken."
Update: Mizhattan was told that it's a discount of 25% off, but not on everything—it appears that it's on ready-to-wear only.
