I stopped by Century21 in the Financial District for the Diesel Sample Sale on opening day. C21 is known to host private sample sales every 2-3 weeks and this sample sale was honoring discounts of 75% off original prices. The main attraction was women’s denim which was arranged on racks by sizes and prices began at $55.00. While I found many of the styles to be outdated with super low rise denim styles their were plenty of styles and sizes to choose from. There are also a few racks of women’s dresses and jumpsuits and prices are beginning in the $75.00 range. There is also a rack of the Diesel Black and Gold collection but a few of the items look damaged. I found the sale to have very low prices but I wasn’t impressed with any of the merchandise and left empty handed. The sale runs throughout Sunday afternoon and as such we should expect further reductions shortly.
On opening day I stopped by the Proenza Schouler Sample Sale at Century21 downtown. The tiny alcove of the C21 store was packed with shoppers attempting to snag fashion deals. The main attraction of the sale was primarily handbags and small leather goods. However, there was a limit to 4 handbags and 3 leather goods per person. Along with the handbags, the second main attraction of the sale was women’s accessories. The cheapest item at the sample sale was a black Proenza Schouler back baseball cap for $29.00. In my opinion, the ready-to-wear was not as heavily discounted as the handbags and hopefully we will see further reductions throughout the week. If you are looking for PS13 PS11s handbag this is the sale for you as prices start at $299.00
