Gucci is hosting an invitation only sample sale at Soiffer Haskin. The sale, which runs through Sunday includes employees, press and friends and family.
As of 4am this morning there was already a line of more than 50 people standing in the chilly fall rain. Employees who were given early access to shop on Wednesday say that prices are nearly 90% off on many items. “There is an amazing assortment of shoes and loafers,” said one sale attendee. The selection of bags is pretty “spectacular” too with prices starting at just $100.
We are told that Gucci employees submitted their invitation lists two weeks ago. So we don’t even know if it would help to start harassing your friend’s friend who used to work at Gucci.
There are rumors that the sale will open to the public but after the Hermes fiasco, we imagine that organizers will be squeamish about attracting large crowds. We are waiting for confirmation and will update this post as soon as we hear back. You can follow along on Instagram for up-to-the-minute updates.
In the meantime, we hear that shoppers are swarming Barneys for the 10am launch of the newest Yeezy collection. If you had lunch plans at Fred’s you might want to consider an alternitive.
