Crowds may be gathered at Moynihan Station right now for New York Fashion Week, but you'll also see a swarm of well-dressed boys and girls on that block next week when the Dolce & Gabbana sample sale comes to Soiffer Haskin (317 W 33rd St) beginning next Thursday, February 25th.
The luxury brand took 2015 off when it came to sample sales, and previously held its annual events at Metropolitan Pavilion. In 2014, we found that the discounts were scaled based on how recent the merchandise was — so the older the season, the cheaper it was. Well, maybe "cheap" isn't the right word to use here, since velvet-lined blazers were $516 and quilted bags were upwards of $400.
High-end sales at this venue are typically just as pricey (if not more so) and can be hit-or-miss when it comes to the selection. Opening days often come with huge lines, so plan out your week accordingly. See more details in the Dealfeed below.
