*SAMPLE SALE* Helmut Required

Joining this week's sample sale craze is the Helmut Lang sale at Chelsea Market. I stopped by the bargain blowout event last night to catch an early glimpse of the merchandise. For those planning on attending, here's what you can expect. But first, please be aware Helmuts are required.

The sale venue was organized and ready to go when I dropped by yesterday. From the label's signature edgy staples to on-trend boyish separates, racks upon racks were filled with drapes, asymmetric hems, jerseys, and moody prints. If you've attended Helmut Lang sample sales before, you may already know outerwear usually dominates the brand's sales. This week's event is no different. I spotted countless racks of biker jackets, leather trimmed coats, office blazers, shearling jackets, tailored coverups and much more. Prices on outerwear ranged from $199 for simple blazers to $699 for shearlings.

Dresses, sweaters, cardigans, denims, tanks, skirts, and shorts were also plentiful in the apparel section. Sizes were available from 0 to 12 and prices started at $29 for basic camis and went up to $179 for evening dresses & leather skirts. Some standout pieces included loose-fit charcoal gray tank tops, drape front blouses, black jersey dresses, cropped skinny jeans, and open knit sweater tanks.

The shoe section was situated in the back and it was comprised of sandals, pumps, lace-up boots, and wedge booties. All shoes were priced $249.

The accessories section was bare bones. With only one wire shelf (20th photo below) holding a limited selection of belts ($39), scarves ($49), handbags ($159), there really wasn't much to browse through. But I will mention this. I spotted Vitreo shoulder bags in fuchsia and black priced $159 at yesterday's preview that are currently being sold online at full price.

Please keep in mind that this week's Helmut Lang sample sale is for women-only. In addition, I was told inventory will not be replenished. If you love the brand and really want to grab a deal, I suggest you go check it out as soon as possible. Like NOW!
