Soho Markdowns Round I

Even a hot day like today couldn't keep us away from scoping out the best markdowns. After exploring the department stores, Madison Avenue and Midtown, we set our sights on Soho. Below is the markdown status at some of the best stores South of Houston.

Acne is moving on June 8th and is holding off on their summer sale until the move is complete. In the meantime, the sizzling hot fashion label is hosting a promotion on their fall and winter overstock. The sale starts on Wednesday and past season merchandise and assorted denim will be 70% off. The sale runs through June 8th and we suggest going getting there fast. Although the stock is plentiful, it will not last long at such a discount.

Alexander Wang
There is currently no markdown at Alexander Wang boutique but online customers were recently sent a promo discount code for 40% off. You can use this link to access the online sale. For this season, we are especially into the brand's iconic asymmetrical draped dresses.

Derek Lam
Presale has started at Derek Lam and the discount is 40% off spring and summer merchandise. The markdown officially starts Friday, but you can request that merchandise “be sent for approval.” This means that a sales person will messenger you your desired items and charge your card for the ones you keep. What you don’t want can be sent back to the store. Usually this type of customer service is reserved for a boutique’s best clients. If you do take advantage of such a program, we suggest that you’re respectful of the boutique and immediately send back whatever you’re not going to keep. Our personal rule is less than 24-hours

IF has a number of hard-to-find international designers and high-end mainstays like Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester, Comme de Garcons and Rick Owens. Presale is already underway and most clothing is 35% off and shoes are 30% off. The sale officially starts Thursday.

Kirna Zabete
The sale at Kirna Zabete starts Wednesday. Just be forewarned that the chic boutique has already sold out of many hot items. If you make it down to the boutique, take advantage of the store’s stylists. It’s always nice to get a fresh perspective and they are really good!
Lauren 212-941-9656

Vera Wang SS2012

Nannette Lepore
This designer’s flirty frocks and separates have been marked down 40%. Fun print swimsuits are included in the markdown but the new swim is excluded, along with an array of runway pieces.

Vera Wang
We must say that we desperately miss the Vera Wang markdowns on Madison. Since the brand moved to Soho, sale shopping has not been the same. On the bright side, presale has already started and clothing is 40% off and shoes are discounted 20%. The sale officially starts later this week but select items like sunglasses are not included.
