The Desert Hills Premium Outlets are so hot right now. On top of scoring Mulberry and McQueen's first Stateside outlets, Valentino's first Cali deal outpost, and a slew of cult-favorite labels, Cabazon's designer-filled shopping center is also scoring Balenciaga's only West Coast outlet this October.
Landing in the East Village, the 2,985-square-foot shop will offer up to 65% off the European fashion house's ready-to-wear and accessories for women and men. More new additions include surf label Billabong (which also opens in the fall) and luxe accessories brand Montblanc and mall stalwart Express, which both recently arrived this summer.
The outlets are also extending their hours for the upcoming Labor Day weekend, which promises additional markdowns (like 20% off leather jackets at AllSaints and 30% off everything at Joe's Jeans). It'll be open September 4th, 5th, and 7th (Friday, Saturday, and Monday) from 9am to 9pm and Sunday, September 6th from 10am to 8pm. Palm Springs road trip, anyone?
