Also, picked up a few accessories at Carmacoma in Amsterdam last week:
The same Raf, Dries and Rick Owens sales items which I had seen there a few months ago were almost all still there. This time, couldn't entirely resist...
Tiziana Fausti still has a size-L sweater with the harness+strap thing:
I'm still not sure about it if it's purely decorative, but if it fulfills a function (i.e. hold together a garment's two halves), it is pretty cool:
Another recent European discovery:
Located in Vienna, apparently.
Haven't ordered anything yet and the Web store is really bad (so bad it makes LNCC look good), but they do have a good selection of brands (Ann, Raf, MMM, Lemaire, Junya).
Just as a heads-up, if you sort by designer, you only get to see their current-season items. Even though those are of course mostly on sale right now, you still have to click on "Sale" at the bottom to...
thanksDo you happen to know around what time that will be? There's a couple of things I would rather get at 50 per cent off than miss out on them. On the other hand, there seems to have been little interest in them the whole season so not unlikely that they discount them further.
Does anybody know if LNCC:
- will do further reductions for items which currently stand at 50 per cent off?
- takes unsold sales stuff off the site at the end of a sales season or do things continue to be available until sold?
Have ordered twice to Europe. First time was a pair of Alexander Wang trackpants which I had to return because they didn't fit - refunded without any problems and prompt communications when I e-mailed them when the return appeared to be stuck at JFK.Second time was a Raf Simons scarf which I kept. Again, prompt service and no problems.
Yes of course I understand that - I am not planning to return them to the US because I'm afraid I'd have to write off the duties+taxes. But perhaps I will try to get info from Belgian customs as to whether there is a way of recovering the amounts from them if I return them to the US.
+1 though on taking care of this through ebay.
I don't know. I guess all it means is that Matches is willing to take a fat loss (on sales items anyway) if it builds them a stellar service reputation. Or maybe they're only offering it for a while to break into the American market and plan to change their policy later.Just ftr, I didn't skip this to make things sound worse than they are but because I doubt this route would get me anywhere. But maybe I'll look into it, who knows.
