What a venue for a sample sale! Chelsea Market was its usual quaint self this morning, with lovely people strolling through. But once the clock struck 9, it was all over. Chelsea Market was transformed into a place of havoc.
Like we always do, we showed promptly two hours before the Helmut Lang sample sale would begin. The line began to grow by 9, but it was not until 9:45 that the most animalistic snob showed up with a sense of entitlement larger than her mouth. She placed herself at the beginning of the line claiming that sitting at the tables outside the doors to the sale did not claim ones line spot. While some might try the docile line-cutting approach, this woman was beyond combative. She was an animal disguised in a human's skin. She continued to yell and complain about how she was too rich for sample sales. She later came at us, claws first, grabbing at Claire like a dirty vulture. When we tried to defend ourselves, she attempted to call security. Well "rich" animal lady, don't ever let us find you at a sale again. We will be the ones calling security on your ass :)
As for the sale:
It was crowded instantly, and the merchandise was nothing less than what you would expect. Current skirts and dresses took up racks, while some older pieces also made appearances. As for pricing, leather was $349, skirts were $79, and dresses ranged from $129-$179. There was a ton of stuff priced at $99, which included many dresses. For $199, you could have your very own Helmut Lang blazer, or if you prefer a pair of denim skinnies, you'll be shelling out $79.
But consider yourselves warned. As you can from these photos below, racks are emptying at lightening speeds.
So get your asses to the sale, we deem this one the perfect blend of haute and havoc.
