Saks Off 5th
Can’t decide whether to shop online or in-store? Then get thee to Saks Off 5th. Proving that the internet isn’t so much killing off the high street as inspiring it, this fresh-faced new NY outlet combines the best of both worlds.
While the mainline flagship, Saks Fifth Ave, undergoes serious renovations, the swanky department store group has unveiled a new location at 125 E 57th St – the first to feature a Gilt shop-in-shop concept store (with real-life versions of the luxury goods shopping website’s weekly flash sales ensuring ‘gilty’ pleasures all round). The 1,000-sq-ft, bi-level space will bring to life many of the website's features, like shopping new releases at noon. A video wall showcases a calendar of upcoming sales.
Expect bargains galore, with daily deliveries of sprint-worthy steals up to 70% off, including women’s and men’s apparel, accessories and shoes, fine jewellery, vintage handbags, and more. You can also hit up the Gilt by Appointment station for personal shopping, with stylists helping you pick out that perfect outfit for an important interview or hot date.
New-season #OFF5THFinds include Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses, blue Vince Camuto frocks, edgy Vita Fede bracelets, Alexander McQueen logo-print scarves and Cynthia Vincent embroidered sandals – because #Spring! So put away the laptop, click your heels and get down to Midtown East for Saks of style…
