The Celebs’ Loss, Your Gain


The Decadestwo pop-up at Soho’s Kiki de Montparnasse is quickly becoming a New York tradition among bargain hunters in the high-stakes game of keeping up appearances. For the past several seasons, Christos Garkinos has packed up more new-with-tags Chanel purses than one man should rightfully possess and installed them—along with a trove of designer consignment ready-to-wear and shoes, much of it donated by his celebrity clients at his home base in L.A.—in the second-floor space of the Soho erotica emporium. (Don’t call it a sex shop, please.) The getting’s as good as ever at the current sale, which opens its doors to the public tomorrow, and strikes an elegiac note: This time around, there’s a special emphasis on pieces by the late Alexander McQueen. Selections include a tiered gown from McQueen’s final collection, a lurid kimono once worn by Janet Jackson, and this diamond-patterned beauty from McQueen’s Spring ’09 collection. Though it’s priced at a fraction of retail cost—$890—it still may be steep for some. They can wait until the sale’s final day, when a collection of Louboutins and Manolos hit the floor for a mere $150.

Decadestwo pop-up shop runs Thursday, March 18, through Sunday, March 21, at Kiki de Montparnasse, 79 Greene St., NYC,

    Just a tip: you can find MUCH better prices at any of the local New York resale shops: Michaels (where the shoes are usually $150 and below), La Boutique Resale, Encore or Roundabout (which can be a little more expensive)
