In the Cooper Building, 3.1 Phillip Lim will be offering up impeccable goods for both ladies and gents at their first ever L.A. sample sale, from Cody shoes ($100) to chunky knits ($150-$200) and perfect T-shirts ($50). The Cooper Building is also playing host to three other notable sample sales: A.L.C. is featuring fitted leather jackets ($350) and floor-skimming silk dresses ($150), in addition to a range of basic pieces; The News showroom has crazy deals on gear from Cheap Monday; Levi’s has denim for men and women starting at $40, while AG Jeans is selling denim for a mere $20.
