The only thing better than a half-off sale is a half-off sale of in-season stock that takes place when the city is pretty much empty. Ta-da! Project No. 8, the little LES boutique that looks like an art gallery, has taken 50% off the likes of Margiela, Bless, Boudicca, Natalia Brilli, Siki Im and Thom Browne—in fact, their complete stock—as well as 35% off all footwear. Incredulous, we popped over to the website, where, lo and behold, we found this Butterfly dress from Bless marked down to $305 (was $610) and Margiela’s oversized shoes (the ones that make you look like you’re a kid trying on your mom’s heels) reduced to $561 (was $935). One more reason to avoid the Hamptons scene.
