Sample Sale Report: Helmut Lang

Stopped by last night for the last 15 min of the Helmut Lang Clothingline sale. They also had Theory, Haute Hippie, AG & Gryphon available but I didn't have a chance to view them properly as they are very strict at this sale. You must check in anything larger than a small handbag, fitting rooms are closed in the last 15 min of the sale and they are serious about closing time. They urge shoppers off the floor 10 min before the sale ends at 7pm.

I was excited to check out the Helmut Lang portion of this sale as prices were supposed to be great! And they were! Thanks to the reader comment below my curiousity was peaked and I ran as soon as I got the chance.

"check out the clothingline sale - the helmut lang stuff is great and cheap but going really really fast. picked up a dress f0r $45, a vest for $55 and a drapey cardigan for $30"

At first I was uber excited as there are plenty of cute styles available across about 3 racks which each contained plenty of distressed look coated skinny jeans, various tops, knits & dresses and khaki slacks.

Unfortunately a lot of these piece require work. They had various damages that you should be wary of and take into considation when shopping. All in all if you are willing to take the time to make some fixes, or live with certain defects you have some serious bargains on hand. I was looking at this pencil skirt and there is a slight defect in the fabric that is barely noticeable so ti was definitely doable.

Other pieces I spied were this lovely panel sweater dress for $45 that I was in love with save for the rip on the sleeve. There were some fun leather shorts for $75 but the side snaps were broken on the outer edges so they sagged down instead of rolling up.

Some shirt dress options available. Plenty of these super cool sheer knits but unfortunately most had snags. If you are willing to dig I'm sure there are finds that are in better condition and a great bargain. Perhaps by the time I got there plenty had flown off the shelves. However, be wary of damages and go quickly as things are still going fast. Make sure you have plenty of time if you want to try on!
