If you've been slacking on your holiday shopping or have just been hoping to find the right opportunity to splurge on a little something for yourself, we have some fantastic news for you: The highly-anticipated annual Alexander Wang sample sale is making its return to New York next week, and it runs from Dec. 9 to Dec. 13 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. While this sadly won't be the grab-whatever-you-can-hold-and-take-it-for-free extravaganza that Wang held as a surprise for his super-fans last summer, you will be able to purchase ready-to-wear, handbags and shoes from the designer's fall 2013, resort 2014 and spring 2014 collections for up to 75% off of the retail price. And you'll have five days to do it.
The sale is taking place in SoHo at 151 Wooster Street, and if the crowds from seasons past are any indication, you're going to want to get there early. To those of you who were able to scoop up a pair of the boxing gloves from Wang's H&M collection before it promptly sold out, may we suggest you bring them along? We're thinking they might come in handy if you're going toe-to-toe with a fellow shopper over one of those famed "Parental Advisory" sweaters.
