Deal With It: Lanvin 1-Day Sample Sale Hits NYC Nextweek!

"Next Wednesday, March 18, from 10 a.m to 5 p.m, over 400 pieces from the storied French house will go on massive sale—we're talking 70% off or more. That means dresses starting at $325 (versus $1,500) and coats starting at $560 (versus $4,000). We can't remember the last time Lanvin had a sample sale, which means we've just hit shopping nirvana. It's guaranteed to be a madhouse scene, though, considering the sale's only for one day, but we're planning on camping out with our most fashionable sleeping bags." In all their excitement, they forget to mention the address: It is 230 Fifth Avenue. [Pipeline]"

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Of all of the majestic stories surrounding this French fashion powerhouse, 1 story that is seldom told is any tale about them having a sample sale - Lanvin doesn't do sales! LOL. In the hierarchy of the haute couture world the Lanvin brand sits on a distinguished dais alongside such legendary firms as Louis Vuitton and Chanel; so, yeah, next week's 1-day sample sale (March 18, from 10AM to 5PM) is, in the words of "Anchorman" Ron Burgundy, "kind of a big deal" ... lol.

Now, while the article that serves as my source for this entry mentions NOTHING of clothing for men, I have got to get my Obama "hope" on that they'll have some Lanvin t-shirts and kicks on hand for the fellas. I might just have to roll up in there and seduce a few 100LB runway models with my fresh-off-of-the-corner charisma meets official-Livestyle-strategist knowledge of fine garments ... lol What's good?
