Madison Avenue boutique, Fivestory is hosting their semi-annual sample sale. This year, the sale has a change of venue. It's moving from the basement of the The Bowery Hotel to the official 151 Wooster Street sample sale storefront. We are happy that the tony boutique has opted for a less dingy location but are worried that outsourcing the sample sale could result higher prices.
At the last sale, all of their merchandise was either 60% or 80% off, depending on the age of the collection. Naturally, we like to focus on the merchandise that is more highly reduced. We found a Preen sweater print dress that comes to about $100 from $495, a Veronique Leroy sweater jacket is about $600 from $2180 and a Versace dress is approximately $540 from $2725. Head this way to see all the highlights and lots of pictures from the last sale. We wouldn't be surprised if a lot of what we photographed made an encore appearance at this sale.
If you've never been to the Fivestory boutique we strongly suggest that you do. The brownstone space feels like the love child between the Mark Hotel and Henri Bendel--in the old days. The decor is luxurious and the fashion is haute. Think Balmain, Cushnie Et Ochs, Mary Katrantzou, Roland Mouret, Jason Wu, Carven and Giambattista Valli. And, of course, there is Rosie Assoulin.
