Thought today was just going to be a regular Tuesday with regular sample sales and regular door policies? Wrong. Mizhattan reports that Lanvin's private sale just started at Alber Elbaz-helmed brand's Midtown offices, but the word "private" kind of has a loose definition. Last time around, mere mortals who weren't on the list were able to shuffle past the door in the early part of the sale, but as word got out and crowds formed, that list became the gate to an impenetrable French luxury fortress.
If you tiptoe in now and ask really nicely, you just might be able to score up to 80% off retail prices on men's and women's apparel, accessories, and shoes—just don't tell anyone where you're going before you leave your desk. See the full sale hours below.
Update: Mizhattan got in earlier today—see what she found.
Tuesday, April 21st through Thursday, April 23rd. Daily 9am—7pm. 37 W 57th St between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, Suite #900 (no phone).
