With this week being the busiest yet in sample sale season, you probably have a schedule for what you'll hit up and when already mapped out. But C21 Edition, the host of this country's first Haider Ackermann and Ann Demeulemeester sample sale, has a curve ball for you: The first 300 Racked readers to RSVP to the sale will get to shop it tomorrow—a full day before it opens to the public. [Update: The entry period is now closed.]
Be sure to send that email with the subject "Racked NY Early Access" and your name in the body of the email before 5pm today, when the entry window closes, so that you can shop at 21 Dey Street at any time on Tuesday, May 12th between 8am and 9pm. See the full contest rules below, as well as a sample of the looks you'll be able to score from the Belgian designers for 60% off retail prices.
