December is here, so if you haven’t started your holiday shopping yet, this giant trade show featuring designers, editors and boutique owners is certainly a good way to start.
This weekend only, Capsule Market Square will open its doors, boasting 100 coveted labels spanning men’s and women’s apparel, accessories, art and furniture under one roof. And with popular brands such as Maison Kitsune, Fleur du Mal, In God We Trust and Mark McNairy making an appearance, you could easily check off everyone on your list after browsing the booths for an hour or two.
Several standout items will be on sale, like Mark McNairy New Amsterdam Higgins pants ($60, usually $248) as well as check jackets from Tomorrowland and Stella red riding boots from Swim marked between 30–70 percent off.
Plus, the event kicks off with a VIP party on Friday, Dec 5th at 4pm, where you can get first dibs on all of the products. Mingle and rub shoulders with the designers, editors and stylists and since it wouldn’t be a party with tunes and booze, there will be cocktails and a live DJ, just in case you wanted to bust a move. Best part? Time Out New York readers receive 50 percent off tickets (normally $53) when you enter the promo code TONY123.
And if you need more incentive to spend your weekend hunting for deals and gifts for your friends and family, Opening Ceremony is holding their sample sale directly across the street. So if you've ever dreamed of owning a closet filled with high-end apparel without sacrificing your bank account, that's now a reality.
