In case you needed any more proof that sample sale season is back in full swing, Staff USA's bank-account-murdering biannual showroom sale returns this week. If it's anything like past sales, expect to drop a lot of cash (except not actual cash—only credit cards are accepted at sales this fancy).
Starting tomorrow, you'll find wholesale prices on one-of-a-kind pieces from the spring collections of Maison Margiela, MM6 Maison Margiela, DSquared2, and likely a bit of Marc Jacobs and Viktor & Rolf as well. Last May's sale saw hectic crowds going for shoes and accessories for both men and women, with most merchandise starting at $250 and going up into the multi-thousands for certain Margiela dresses. Let's hope that prices do drop like they did in November, hiking the discounts up to 80% off wholesale prices.
Thursday, April 30th through Saturday, May 2. Thu 2pm–7pm, Fri 10am–7pm, Sat noon–5pm.
