It seemed like the Alexander Wang sample sale wouldn't be happening this year, given that the designer just gave a ton of clothes away for free. However, Mizhattan reports that the sale will begin on Tuesday, August 20th at 131 Greene Street, and go all the way through Saturday.
The freebie clothing event was all T by Alexander Wang merchandise, so we're assuming that the sample sale will probably have a good amount of stock from the regular collection (with fingers crossed for lots of bags). The discount will reportedly be up to 70% off. We've reached out to Wang's camp to double check, since the last sample sale rumors were unfortunately a false alarm.
Update: Alexander Wang just responded to our request for comment today (August 12th), and says that the sale will begin on Tuesday the 20th. We've updated the post accordingly above to reflect that information.
