Premium outlet of New York’s Saks Fifth Avenue, Saks OFF 5TH opened a pop-up store on the fourth floor of Galeria Kaufhof, Hohe Straße. There is a wide selection of fashion for men and women, shoes, sunglasses and bags, all on discount of up to 60%, until end of December 2018.
I visited the pop-up yesterday, and think you should give it a visit as well. The setup is not as snazzy as I would expect a SFA production to be. The items on sale are a mix of dated and must-haves. Curators for the pop-up have focused on individual pieces to create the mood board, instead of entire collections. Also, new pieces will be periodically added to keep the stock fresh for return customers.
I love that the items are sorted in sizes, be it clothes or shoes, saving you a lot of time browsing through items that are not the right fit. I was on a lookout for something with animal print on, and loved a faux fur coat (was €170, now €69) and leather ankle boots (€40).
Another outstanding feature is the aroma of freshly popped corn in the air. I literally navigated through with it. There are also drinks and live DJ to lend the whole setup a festive flair.
Opening times are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 09:30 to 20:00, Friday 09:30 to 21:00. Closed on Sundays.
