The Fivestory off-site sale officially opens to the public today, but we stopped by the Bowery Hotel last night to check out the goods. The venue may be small, but the racks are stuffed with clothing for men, women, and children, as well as shoes, jewelry, handbags, and leather goods. Discounts are 60% and 80% off retail, and price tags are marked with a red (60% off) or blue (80% off) dot sticker.
As you enter the first room, you'll see women's shoes to your right. Standouts include suede Gianvito Rossi stilettos for $306 and black heels from Sergio Rossi for $218. Don't miss the other women's footwear section by the steps into the second room—there you'll find designs from brands like Nina Ricci, Aperlai, and Carven. A pair of maroon Alexander Wang sandals are $236 after a 60% off discount.
In the menswear section, we found red Europann "Colorado" shorts for $20 and slim chinos by Visvim for $103. A sweater by Acne is $88 and an indigo patchwork shirt by Wings & Horns is $92. Those who are doing some early fall shopping might want to check out the Orlebar Brown jacket for $190 and White Mountaineering fleece parka for $178.
In front of the men's racks, there are bins filled with cashmere sweaters, including a $180 design from Fivestory's in-house label and soft plaid Comme des Garcons pullover for $139.60. This area is where you'll also find leather pouches and laptop cases by Khoi Le, and, underneath the tables, men's sneakers from Converse and Saucony.
Designer brands like Balmain, Alexander Wang, Narcisco Rodriguez, Jason Wu, Cushnie et Ochs, and Thakoon dominate the women's clothing area. Here we found Suno trousers for $113.80, a Carven sweater for $57.60, and a black midi skirt by Preen for $265. We also saw an Acne suede jacket for $680 and a brown Veronique Leroy jacket for $281. There are dressing rooms for both men and women in the back corner of the space.
There's also a rack devoted to shoes and clothing for boys and girls. In the children's section, we found a calf leather mini skirt from Petit Nord for $38.
The sale runs through next Wednesday, and will be restocked. See the dealfeed below for more details.—Hsini
