Don't Miss Sample Sales From Alexander McQueen, Desigual, Paragon Sports, Artek, and Orrefors Kosta Boda

Alexander McQueen Sample Sale
The upcoming Alexander McQueen sample sale has us feeling particularly squeal-y. First of all, it’s the master of design Alexander McQueen. Secondly, this is the first public sample sale the brand’s hosted in five years. Basically, it’s a big deal and you better be there. Shoppers will find womenswear, menswear, and accessories marked down. We expect long lines, so fuel up on some coffee and pencil in a decent chunk of time so you don’t feel rushed.
WHEN: 9/8 – 9/11; M (10-7), Tue-W (9-6:30), Th (9-5)
WHERE: Soiffer Haskin. 317 West 33rd Street, (Just west of 8th Avenue), New York. 718-747-1656
