20 W. 36th St. (bet. 5th & 6th Ave.), 6th Floor
Not to be confused with the uber expensive Balmain, Pierre Balmain is more of a diffusion line. The collection consists of more $600 dresses rather than $6000 dresses from the haute line. Prices are promoted as up to 70% off of retail but we’ll have to see just how much hits that high note before officially giving this sale a thumbs up.
Thursday, October 24 through Sunday, October 27
Thurs 3pm-8pm, Fri & Sat 10am-7pm & Sun 11am-5pm
The Altman Building, 135 W. 18th St between Sixth and Seventh Avenues
At the last sale, sterling silver jewelry and bangles were 30% off. The 18K collection and yellow gold and silver assortment were discounted steeper at 40% and 50% respectively. The watch selection was quite limited, but all timepieces were 50% off retail.
