On The Hunt For Steals (And Sleeves)
“I hate the crazy women—you know the ones at samples sales,” Rebecca Minkoff said. “If it’s a sale in a civilized environment, then I will go.” And despite the lure of a discounted Vena Cava wool cape or a Nicholas K leather jacket, shoppers at Lucky‘s Lucky Shops VIP preview last night remained relatively calm. (Though one of the busiest boutiques was Minkoff’s own, where ladies were getting pretty animated about studded leather satchels.) A crew of browsers, including Hilary Duff and Nate Berkus (pictured), Michelle Trachtenberg, and Twiggy browsed the heavily-discounted racks, some with more urgent shopping missions than others. Duff picked up a few pieces from the sister-act jewelry line Dannijo, but what she really needed was something a little warmer than the Diane von Furstenberg L.B.D. she was wearing. “I didn’t bring a coat to New York this time, which was stupid because I am freezing,” she admitted. Then off to outerwear she went.
