The Rodarte Sample Sale Is Actually Kind of Affordable!


Admittedly, we were skeptical of Rodarte's cash-only sample sale, which kicked off today. With projected prices ranging from $40 to $4,000, we envisioned racks of damningly expensive singed chiffon and webby knits, each item costing several months' rent. Instead, reports from the front lines are gleefully positive. Dresses and shoes start at $300, leather jackets are $500 to $2,000, and a slew of skirts and tops are in the $80-to-$100 range. Even the extra-frugal among us can snag a tote for $40. Hurry over: The sale ends tomorrow at 7 p.m. [Racked NY; Mizhattan]
