The end of an era: Yoko Devereaux

yokoimage per nytimes

I first found the Yoko Devereaux line about three years ago while shopping in the Wicker Park area of Chicago…the pieces were simple but sharp-looking, the construction on some pieces looked unique…I instantly became a fan.  This past fall, I found the line for sale on http://www.supermarkethq.com (i.e. etsy but much more easily navigated)…the selection was great, and there were great buys at sale pricepoints too.

Earlier this month, the New York Times did an article on the line at their Brooklyn store.  Yoko D was launched in collaboration with Urban Outfitters this past April.

ALL THIS, but unfortunately, the line is ending 😦  Turning lemons into lemonade, the line is going out with a bang…a big sale begins today online…in stores tomorrow.  Tees are $5, down from $64-$69…Cardigans are $20 down from $96…deals like this aren’t an everyday thing…jump in!

I copped the tee below, and I think it’s the first in a long time I’ve paid more for shipping than for the item itself.
