If you missed our Twitter updates, last night media and late night shoppers visited the Gilt City Warehouse at the MCA Warehouse. As with previous warehouse sales, the inventory was varied, eclectic and deeply discounted. With digging and patience, great designer deals were found—leather Sandro shorts ($129 from $425), a ruffled fuchsia Marchesa minidress ($595 from $1980), and a classic fall trench by Marni ($365). The accessories up front were mostly picked over, but there was a silver python embossed Emily Cho satchel ($189 from $750).
For lucky ones with tiny feet, you may find yourself leaving with a pair of Isabel Marant shoes. There were two full racks of Isabel Marant footwear size EUR 35-38 ($110 to $526).
Great deals were also spotted in menswear like a Rick Owens leather jacket ($999 from $3,338) just in time for the change of seasons. And a John Varvatos pop-up store featuring insider pricing on fall and winter pieces.
Tickets are still available for all four of today's sessions at giltcity.com for just $10. There's music, snacks and cocktails, so even if you leave empty handed, you'll still have fun.—Jennifer Ho
