The Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale: Take Two

By: Cristina Martin 

Two time’s a charm, I guess, for the Roberto Cavalli sample sale. Roberto Cavalli hosted a sample sale just last month at Clothingline. You can read all about how awful that sale was in our full report. This time Soiffer Haskin has taken the Roberto Cavalli burden on and is attempting to rid the merchandise for the brand. Let me tell you, there are clear improvements. Roberto Cavalli is a brand for people who have a flashier taste. (Absolutely nothing wrong with that.) This Roberto Cavalli sample sale had clothing, shoes, and accessories for both the flashy and the subtle dresser. Even some of the flashy items were cute! They had jackets with beautiful beading and patterns. The beautiful beadwork continued onto jeans with unique flower patterns. On the other hand, the horrendous snakeskin outfits were brought from the last sale to haunt us.

We rated the Roberto Cavalli Sample sale a 6 out of 10. They went up three points since the quality and quantity of the merchandise improved.  However, the prices are still very high. I understand that the brand prices in the thousands, but $480 for a Roberto Cavalli jacket is still a bit high in my opinion. Just like the last sale, men make out the best. Men had an array of handsome traditional and non-traditional suits. Men can also browse through sweaters, casual wear, and shoes. There was also a selection of funky pieces, but men’s was definitely tamer. Unfortunately, photos were not allowed at the Roberto Cavalli, but we managed to sneak in some for you all. If you have any questions, please DM us on Instagram (@shopdropapp). Happy shopping!

Step into Animal Kingdom at the Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale

Roberto Cavalli Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Walking into Clothingline’s Roberto Cavalli sample sale made me feel like I was on set at Animal Planet. Wow! Is the only way I can describe it. (I don’t mean that in a good way.) The clothing was absolutely horrendous! Gowns were lined up against the wall with bright colors, intense beading, and crazy patterns. The racks in the center contained more dresses with beading and beaded fringe. We also found a variety of snakeskin clothing. Vests, dresses, jackets, and skirts contained this reptilian print. We understand animal print is coming back this fall, but I don’t think you really want a snakeskin fringe jacket with matching skirt.

Men’s was no picnic either. The animal theme continued. We now step into the southern Sahara desert to find a men’s suit with lion heads printed on the jacket and pants. You can also shop tops and bottoms of various bright colors, animal prints, and rhinestones among others. Men are actually in better shape at the Roberto Cavalli sale. Men can score undershirts and briefs in all sizes for $15. Additionally, men can pick up leather dress shoes and sneakers for $149.

We rated the Roberto Cavalli sample sale a 3 out of 10. Honestly, the sale lost the majority of its points because of the hideous clothing. Major deductions also came from the pricing. All items were 85% off the MSRP. However, prices were mostly still in the $1,000 range. We didn’t find any women’s items for less than $500. Unless you want to grab some men’s shoes or baics, the Roberto Cavalli sample sale is a hard pass. Stay home on this rainy Tuesday, and save your money for another time. Happy shopping!

This post is dedicated to all the snakes that gave their lives to make this awful sample sale possible… RIP
