Best designer archive and sample sales to shop now

While brick-and-mortar clothing stores may be closed, luxury brands are finding new ways to share their most coveted items with fashion lovers. Instead of waiting in line for hours for exclusive and impossible-to-get archive pieces, you can now score many of them from home, thanks to rare online sample sales.

Here are a few of our favorite exclusives that have just popped up from American designers. Grab one before they (almost certainly) sell out!
