Maxfield sale: Save 40% to 50% 'for the next week or so'

June 10, 2009 | 12:21 pm


 I noticed a half-full parking lot and a whole lot of black and white sale tags fluttering on the racks when I stopped into Maxfield in West Hollywood on Tuesday.

Though the sales staff was short on specifically what was included or excluded from the sale (I'll bet the vintage Hermes and $17,500 taxidermied hooves aren't being discounted), the floor manager did tell me there were mark downs of 40% to 50% and that the sale would continue "for the next week or so."

A quick spin through the men's offerings (both on sale and not) uncovered a treasure trove of Rick Owens leather jackets, Lanvin and Dries Van Noten button-front wovens, reconstructed Libertine trousers and a few  blue-spray paint polka-dot pieces from the Spring/Summer 2009 Comme des Garçons Homme Plus collection. (If you'll recall, last July we told you how local artist/designer/retailer Brett Westfall had a hand in customizing some of that collection).
