Great deals BUT crowded at Altuzarra

By: Gabriella Rose

Set up: The Altuzarra sample sale had ENDLESS options of everything! The set up was as follows: all bags and accessories in the front, clothing throughout, and shoes in the back. Alutuzarra’s space was very crowded – there were also lines out the door. The room was very organized, and each rack was categorized by size. It was extremely easy to find your own desired size.

Merchandise/ pricing: Pricing went as follows: past season coats were $195, dresses were $100, skirts were $50, and blouses were $50. For the fall/ winter 2019, coats were $595, blazers $350, dresses $295, and skirts $150. The prices were great, and everything was incredibly discounted. As far as the quantity: there were A TON of options for each item. There were tons of gowns, dresses, coats, and pants. There were also a lot of bags, both small and large. Bags were going for $150 (small) and $200 (medium/large). Sunglasses and belts were $50. The bags were available in multiple colors as well. There were a ton of shoes in the back section as well, and throughout the store. I saw a bunch of shoes and belts – yet everything was going super fast!

Nearly 90% Off at The Altuzarra Sample Sale

By: Ashley Randall 

Today we had the opportunity to head all the way downtown to check out the Altuzarra Sample Sale. While Altuzarra hosts the sample sale themself, so the discounts go as high as 90% off (we are drooling).

The sale featured tons of current season merchandise as well as past season merchandise. The Altuzarra sale was very organized and separated by the current versus old season merchandise. The pricing on the past seasons were amazing, nearing to 90% off retail. They had a lot of availability in terms of stock and sizing. While the current season merchandise was on the pricier side, there was a nice selection. There were tons of shoes available, including boots, lace up heels and funky pumps.The Altuzarra Sample Sale also featured a decent selection of bags and accessories.

Overall, we rated this sale an 8 out of 10. Altuzarra is one of the remaining brands that hosts their sample sale in house (and we are so happy about it). We recommend you stop by and check it out!

Beautiful Building, Uneventful Sale: The ALTUZARRA Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin 

The Altuzarra sample sale was held on the 14th floor of the Woolworth building down by City Hall. If you’re an NYC architecture nerd like me, you will really appreciate the beautiful interior as you pass through the lobby. Other than that the Altuzarra sample sale was uneventful. The sale felt more like a regular retail boutique rather than a sample sale. The clothing was very pretty as that brand always delivers nice designs. This sale is perfect if you are going for that urban chic look.

We rated the Altuzarra sample sale a 7 out of 10. Pricing was really confusing, and still quite high. There were only a few racks of clothing and a long table with knits and accessories. The best part of the sale was the shoes. They had a large variety of numerous sizes. If you’re a huge fan of the brand, then check it out. (or if you just want an excuse to go inside the Woolworth building) Happy shopping!

Hot Brand, Hot Sale The Altuzara Sample Sale

By: Cristina Martin

Altuzarra – one of the hottest brands out there right now. The Altuzarra sample sale is also hot, hot, hot!

Lines were already forming in the early morning hours at this two day sample sale.  The line was somewhat long, but it moved fairly fast. You can most likely expect one early tomorrow. Once you’re in, there is plenty of merchandise to choose from. The show room is beautiful, with plenty of space to shop. the staff was just lovely and very attentive.

Most of the merchandise at the Altuzara sample sale is from the current season. #YASSS There were about five racks with items from previous seasons. Previous season items consisted mostly of a few blazers and basic pants. Nothing really special. The prices were also very fair. Check out the Altuzara sample sale tomorrow before it ends! Happy shopping!

Altuzarra Sample Sale Insights By Bespoke Bargains

Altuzarra sample sale

The bi-annual Altuzzara sample sale has earned its place among my favorite sales due to its gorgeous pieces and generous discounts. The sale usually takes place in July and December, and I’d been scouring my inbox the past couple of weeks waiting for news on this months dates!

The sale opened today at 8:30 am and I arrived within the first hour. The sale space wasn’t crowded, but there is limited real estate at the coat check, and I waited about 15 minutes before heading in. The sale usually offers a mix of shoes, bags, current season RTW, and past season pieces. Before I get into some of the specific pieces/collections that were available, let me update you on pricing. Shoes top out at $500 for current season lace-up OTK faux pearl boots (retail $2,195!) Regular boots are $300 and heels/pumps are $250.

There are lots of bags and they are priced as follows. Exotics (only available in smaller sizes) and large bags are $400, medium sized bags are $300, and mini bags/clutches are $200. Bags received a significant price drop from the last sale! In July, large bags were $550 and small bags were $350. Today I spotted lots of Ghianda leather knot hobos for $400 (retail $2,295), Ghianda saddle bags for $300 (retail $2,195) and a handful of Ghianda mini saddle bags in python for $400 (retail $2,395.) I didn’t see any clutches, but there were a few mini saddle bags in Suede for $200. I’ve heard from people that visited the sale later this afternoon that those may have all sold out. FYI, handbags are mostly available in neutral colors like brown, black, and red.

Current collection has flat pricing by category. That’s a departure from previous sales where pieces were a straight 75% off retail. I very much prefer the current model. Coats are $500, dresses are $300 (I saw a few that retail for $2,995, like the Filippa dress!) and knits/tops are $150. Towards the back of the sale space, you’ll find past season pieces. Some are true samples, but many are production pieces that are brand new with tags. The most abundant size is 36. Tops/skirts/pants/knits are all just $50! Dresses are $125, blazers are $150 and outerwear—I didn’t see any—is $200. There is also a small selection of past season shoes for $50! The only exceptions to this
categorical pricing are a smattering of heavily embellished and /or beaded pieces that are price as marked.

There is a generously sized fitting room and lots of mirrors. Staff is incredibly friendly, helpful and, perhaps most importantly, super knowledgeable about the pieces. I will say that I didn’t think the selection of RTW was as strong today as it was in July, though the prices were phenomenal. Overall the sale is not quite as well stocked and there are fewer pieces to go around. I’d definitely still recommend a visit, particularly if you’ve had your eye on a handbag.
