The YSL sample sale opened to press and VIPs at 9am Monday and reports from both categories of shoppers are mixed. Basically, there are no bags worth mentioning but the clothing is super highly reduced.
Within the category of "bags not worth mentioning" are a few patent leather Roadys with tarnished hardware for $200. (Sometimes you get what you pay for.) Small leather goods like, iPad cases, wallets and coin purses are $50. An assortment of jewelry is also priced at $50.
If you're a real YSL fan and don't mind past season's Stefano Pilati then you will make out big. All skirts and pants are priced at $50 and full-on gowns are just $400. One of these evening stunners had an original price tag that was over $22,000.
Regardless of how good the prices are on jewelry and clothing, we wouldn't suggest waiting on the multi-hour line that is expected to begin growing in the wee hours of morning. Instead, we suggest attending the sale later in the afternoon. You know, before work lets out but after the die-hards have left for the day?
