My first stop was at the women's designer clothing floor and I'd say the whole trip was off to a good start. As soon as I stepped off the escalator, I was greeted by Phoebe Philo's designs for Céline. There were around 20 pieces of Céline clothing on a single metal rack and I spotted silk blouses, leather trimmed collar shirts, tailored trousers, and slim fit sleeveless dresses. If you're wondering about prices, the printed lightweight blouse in the photo above was $799.97 (originally $1,765), the drape front sleeveless fuchsia top in the 1st photo below was $849.97 (originally $2,120), the gray wrap skirt in the 2nd photo below was $329, the textured sleeveless dress in the 3rd photo below was $599.97 (originally $1,385), and the pair of dark navy trousers in the 4th photo below were $429.97 (originally $960).
Women's handbags were situated on the ground floor and designer brands like Fendi, Mulberry, and Chloé were on display inside shiny glass cases. For Fendi fans, there were 2Jours in eggplant ($1,299.97) and fur. As for Chloé, I only found one Alice in purple. There were several varieties of Mulberry bags as well. Bayswater shoulders and Suffolk top handles were available in white, black, and navy. Suffolks were priced $1,229.97 while Bayswater shoulders were $1,399.97.
Since summer is in full swing, I couldn't resist browsing their sunglasses selection. I found several different styles of Lanvin and Miu Miu sunnies that were priced $80~$110. Prada and Tom Ford sunglasses were also available and priced $110 and $130, respectively.
My final stop was at the women's shoes in the adjacent building. Here, I found labels like Nina Ricci, Rochas, Lanvin, Aquazurra, Marc Jacobs, Jil Sander, Gianvito Rossi, Sergio Rossi, Miu Miu, Prada, Fendi, Givenchy, Burberry, and Dolce & Gabbana. While perusing the shoe section, I spotted a pair of colorful Aquazurra bow sandals for $139.98 (10th photo below), Givenchy metal cap toe pumps for $229.97 (11th photo below), Fendi kitten heel sandals for $349.97 (last photo below), Prada pointed toe silver pumps for $429.97 (12th photo below), Burberry wedge sandals for $359.97 (13th photo below), Marc Jacobs metallic sandals for $109.99 (14th photo below), and Sergio Rossi multi-strap sandals for $279.97 (15th photo below).
I'm not sure if going to Century 21 is part of your summer weekend activities but I thought I should share these findings with you just in case any of you are interested. Also, if you ever come across great bargains while shopping in NYC, feel free to let me know and I'll try to check them out and report on them. Happy shopping!
