A Racked correspondent just got back from the pre-sale at Fred Segal Melrose, which goes public tomorrow at 10am. "The sale wasn't too crazy, comparable to a busy Saturday. They do have a list, but if a customer wasn't on it, they just added the name and allowed he/her in. Ron Herman had tons of extra racks of clothes filled with Marc by Marc, Vivienne Westwood, Ella Moss, etc. I wasn't extremely impressed with the apparel selection, but the shoe department has all our faves—Christian Louboutin, Prada, Jimmy Choo—all organized by size and waiting for a good home."
