One of the aspects I miss most about living in NYC full-time is the constant access to sample sales. I lived down the street from one of the main sample sale hubs, and sometimes walking home from work or a meeting meant popping into whatever sample sale was currently happening and snagging crazy deals. For those of you who have never been to a sample sale: yes, the prices are that good, and yes, you should try it sometime!
Even premier designers offer sample sales, but often, they are not open to the public. That is not the case with Bottega Veneta, because today and tomorrow, July 27 and 28, they have a sample sale happening in NYC. Here’s the thing: the brand wasn’t able to share price info with me, but they did say the stock is heavily discounted. Also, tomorrow’s reductions will be even bigger than today, so tomorrow is the time to go for the best prices–it’s the last day!
The Bottega Veneta Sample Sale only occurs once a year and includes men’s ready-to-wear, women’s ready-to-wear, men’s and women’s shoes, men’s and women’s handbags and travel accessories and small leather goods for men and women. If you’re in NYC, pop in and grab something good! All bags in this post are included in the sale.
WHEN: WEDNESDAY July 27th 10AM -7PM and THURSDAY July 28th 9AM -7PM
WHERE: The Metropolitan Pavillion – 123 West 18th Street

That movement will be the star in the present right here also. The caliber 9917 MC is made and created in-house by Cartier. It is a really skeletonized, manually-wound movement and on this observe you may see each of the main elements at perform, using the power barrel up major, the going train running down the center, as well as escapement with the bottom. You will also observe that the 9917 MC is curved to match the signature curvature in the Cintrée’s situation. It can be very good to see that Cartier took this thought every one of the way and developed anything curved as a result of and by means of instead of just utilizing a smaller, flat motion that will match anyway.
