If you're one of those people who come home after a night out and end up spending a small fortune on Net-a-Porter, consider yourself warned. Rebecca Minkoff's having a surprise online sale tonight. It starts at midnight and goes until everything's gone. Over 200 different items - bags, wallets, clutches, - will be 50% off and you'll get free shipping. Apparently spring means "shop" now. UPDATE: Sorry guys, their PR says the sale has been cancelled.
Rebecca Minkoff To Open First Brick-and-Mortar Store Early Next Year
Rebecca Minkoff's accessories have developed something of a cult following. Legions of young ladies are devoted to her studded bags, and now men can worship at the altar of Minkoff too, as she launched an accessories line for men this past summer. But she got her start as an apparel designer (before launching her accessories line in 2005) and last year launched ready-to-wear. She's building a lifestyle brand so it follows that everything Minkoff should have a brick-and-mortar home. At our first "How I'm Making It" panel last night (more on that soon), Minkoff revealed plans to open her first store sometime early next year. No word on a location yet, but we'd put money on SoHo or Nolita. While the store will obviously stock all things Minkoff, it will also feature, as Minkoff described it, "things I love." Think assorted treasures from her travels like journals, books, or even pottery (yes, she said pottery). According to Minkoff's PR, the store will also aim to support fellow CFDA inductees.
