It might have to do with the gloomy weather enveloping the city today, but it's safe to say that you can walk, not run, to Odin and Pas de Deux's sale in the East Village. When we stepped into the brother and sister boutiques' sale space at 436 East 9th Street early this afternoon to see what was marked down up to 75% off retail prices, the crowds were definitely lacking—but the labels we found in the (small) merchandise selection certainly wasn't.
Starting with the women's rack in the back, you can expect a wide variety of items from Acne Studios' spring 2014 collection, including tees ($49), shorts ($75—$89) and dresses ($89). Shorts from Thakoon Addition ($75) and tops from Isabel Marant Étoile ($49), 3.1 Phillip Lim ($89), and FWK Engineered Garments ($89) are also available.
We particularly liked the T by Alexander Wang skirts going for $69, and the shoes for $169 from the designer's main label. Other shoe options range between $129 for Dieppa Restrepo styles and $249 for footwear from Woman by Common Projects.
Men can find a large selection of button-down shirts (several of which are from Junya Watanabe) hovering a bit above the $100 mark, knocked down from original prices of $350—$450. Shoes range between $150 and $189.
While the options are limited at the moment, a staffer informed us that the clothing selection will be rotated every other day—so if you're in the neighborhood, it's definitely worth a peek. Check out the sale hours in the Dealfeed below.
