We’re glad Prabal Gurung had a sample sale this Fall (even though it was only one day). That being said, it wasn’t all wine & roses. The stock merchandise was beautiful but few styles. We got there at 8:15AM and most of the racks were already half-full. Prices for retail were ranging from $150-$250 and included a few dresses, jackets and colorful tops. There were a few boxes with Tees in all sizes for $35, and cashmere sweaters for $195. For Prabal – not the end of the world.
The sample racks – ahhhh… As I was leaving the sample sale, I bumped into a ShopDropper in the elevator and we spent the next few minutes analyzing the samples and comparing the sample sale to the one that took place last Spring. Prices went up and quality went down. There was a $75 rack and a $100 rack. The items on those racks either didn’t belong there or were held together with safety pins – we’re talking not wearable AT ALL. If you love the brand and are looking for a good cocktail dress, you should add this one to your list.
