Don't Miss Sample Sales From Wes Gordon, J.A.C.H.S., Condor, and Oonagh by Nanette Lepore
I hate to say this, but it’s already August. July was a good one, but there are simply not enough days and nights in order to properly enjoy this city summer! Make the last half of the summer count this week. Do something new – go horseback riding or white water rafting on the weekend, take a sunset sail on the Hudson after work and make sure you book a reservation at the hottest restaurant in town, featuring the most obscure menu full of foods you’d never thought you’d eat. While you’re at it, be sure to visit sample sales of designer clothes you’ve never shopped before, including Wes Gordon, Oonagh, J.A.C.H.S., and Condor. See below for an introduction to these designers and why their sales are a “Don’t Miss” this week.
J.A.C.H.S. Sample Sale
Heads up prepsters, there’s a new casual wear in town. With echoes of Ralph Lauren Denim Supply, J.A.C.H.S. aims to achieve a vintage American style, featuring vintage-inspired woven shirts and clothing with unexpected details and finishes. Be sure to check out why J.A.C.H.S. calls themselves “ruggedly sophisticated” at their sample sale beginning Monday within the Chelsea Market where literally everything is only $39 including shirts, dresses, tunics, bottoms, knits, polos, etc., etc. Hop to it prepsters!
Condor Sample Sale
At the Condor Sample Sale beginning Tuesday, expect to find a whole slew of designers you may have never shopped before including Hoffman, Cut 25, We Are Handsome, Hanky Panky, and Ace and Jig. The extra special treat of the sale is selections from Vivienne Westwood and Theory will also be on hand for up to 80% off. Here, expect to find Cut 25 dresses starting at $99 and Vivienne Westwood shoes for as low as $55.
Oonagh by Nanette Lepore Sample Sale
Yet another blowout sale! Nanette Lepore’s flagship label, Oonagh (French for pure) features glorious dresses, striped tunics, and floral-print cut out frocks, evoking fashionably feminine style with a dash of edge. While you browse the Oonagh by Nanette Lepore line at the upcoming sample sale beginning Tuesday on 35th Street, expect to find true samples of tanks, dresses, silk shorts, and linen pants, marked between $15-$50.
Wes Gordon Sample Sale
At 26 years young, Wes Gordon has hit the ground running in the fashion industry. As a designer, his boyish charm mixed with his elegant yet edgy designs with bold colors and patterns, has wow-ed fashion forward celebrities with the likes of Lena Dunham and January Jones. This Thursday, check out what all the buzz is about at the Wes Gordon Sample Sale in Tribeca. Expect to find Red Crushed Satin Twill Plunge Tees and Pants for $200/$300 and Wide Leg trousers for $200.
