The Helmut Lang sample sale at Chelsea Market is set up and ready to roll. It technically begins tomorrow morning, but when we went to have a look earlier today everything was out on the floor. The chance of it opening up before its scheduled time of 10am is looking really good.

This season's sale is less about stocking up for summer and more focused on putting away pieces for next fall. Though there are quite a few lighter things, the bulk of the clothing is made up of Helmut Lang's signature leather.

There's a long rack filled with leather pants and leggings for $299. These are available in every size and come in black, corsa, and plaster. The leather jackets line the far right, with styles like a leather hoodie and a jacquard cropped biker for $399. If that doesn't fill your leather craving, see the rack of leather paneled tops for $115.

There are tons of casual dresses for $119, but not too much in the cocktail dress department. If you were hoping to get something dressy, head to that small rack first: we saw a fuchsia organza spaghetti strap dress from this season on sale for $179.

For lighter pieces for summer, stock up on jersey. You'll find a rack of tops for $39, dresses for $89, camis for $29, skirts for $49, and jackets for $79. There's a rack of little shorts and mini skirts right near the camis for $129 that'll totally work for the hot summer months.

There are loads of blazers in classic and funky styles for $199, a small selection of long winter coats for $299, jackets with a bit more embellishment for $249, and a rack of shearlings for $699. There's also a small selection of sweaters for $79. Denim and leggings are also $79 and pants are $129.

Accessories have bags for $159, winter scarves for $49, belts for $39, and bralettes for $29. There are shoes for $249 a pair, with styles like strappy summer heels and a pair of furry white pumps.

W're told there will absolutely be no restocking—everything is out for taking. The sale runs through Sunday. See the dealfeed below for more details and the gallery for a visual.
