This Might Be the Best Prive Sample Sale Yet

I generally have a lukewarm feeling about the Prive sample sales, which take place at Chelsea Market. Most of the time, the atmosphere is great, the place is well lit, the staff nice. The pricing is not the cheapest but it’s not horrible either, and brands are contemporary to high-end.

Imagine how excited I was today when I walked into the sale to find 2 racks of Versace hoodies and t-shirts. Granted, they were for men – but still. Versace?! Then there were beautiful Derek Lam coats – the puffers with the fur collars selling for $350. We loved them. And there were some Elizabeth and James coat selling for $59! That was my favorite item of the night.

Other brands with awesome selections were Vince (for tees, shirts  and shoes for women), Milly (kids, adults, dresses, skirts, sweaters and pants), Elizabeth and James (blazers, dresses and coats). All in all, this is a great sale for some staple sweaters. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10. Peace.

The Prive Sample Sale is a No Go.

By: Jacqueline Munro

The Prive Sample Sale is being hosted at the Chelsea Market and it kind of sucks. I was super excited when I read the flyer for this sale, but when I got there it was a total let down.

Although the prices were decent (shoes were $159, outerwear was $249, dresses were $109, and sweaters and sweatshirts were $89) the selection was terrible and most of the clothes looked like they’d been sitting in a ball in the back of a warehouse for the last 100 years. The only respectable items at this sale were the shoes. There were a couple of cool pairs by Marni, some cute Gianvito Rossi pumps, and one awesome pair of Moschino shoes, but other than that I was unimpressed. The outerwear options were okay but the shirts, sweaters, and bottoms were atrocious. The men’s selection was definitely better than the women’s selection. There was a ton of Dsquared stuff and the jackets that they had were super on-trend. I think today was the first time that I ever wished I was a man.

Overall I gave this sale a 5/10. If I hadn’t been able to walk out of this sale and buy $25 worth of chocolate in the same building I probably would have given it a zero. Avoid this sale if you can help it.

Vince is the Highlight of the Prive Sample Sale

We gave the Prive sample sale a 6 out of 10. Here’s why. We loved that they had modern collection Vince shoes and tops, that they had stuff for men and women, that the space was pleasant as it always is in Chelsea Market. We weren’t thrilled about the pricing or the other items at the sale.

Setting and Merchandise: The layout was the usual for Chelsea Market. The right side of the room was filled with men’s merchandise. Shoes were on tables against the walls, and racks had clothing from Onia, Vince, Frame denim. There was a rack of swim shorts as well. The women’s side had the same brands. Shoes were organized by style, there were fifteen styles to choose from. Some of the white slides were current season.

Pricing: To be honest, I didn’t see a single item that was over $100 at the sale. For items from Frame and Vince, that could be impressive. There was a rack with some indie brands, where all items were $15. That being said, I wasn’t able to find anything I couldn’t leave without. The vince tank tops were soft and yummy, but they were $29 each and I just couldn’t justify such a price tag on an undershirt.

And so, I left empty-handed. For those who love Vince and Frame & would be willing to pay full price this sale would be a treasure hunt. For others – a hard pass.

Squeezing Out Every Bit of Summer at the Prive Sample Sale

Chelsea Market sample sales never disappoint! The Prive sample sale featured summer clothing and swim for both men and women. Chelsea Market has a huge space, so there was plenty of merchandise form a variety of brands to choose from. There are racks of swim for both men and women in so many colors. This is the perfect opportunity to stock up for next year, or that tropical getaway in January. The Prive sample sale also had a dresses, tops, cute pants, and skirts. For the gentlemen, you can choose from tops, trousers, denim and accessories. Prices were also very reasonable!

We rated the Prive sample sale a 8 out of 10. Pros were of course the fabulous clothing, huge selection, and affordable prices. The only con was the fact that it is mostly summer, you only have a few weeks at best to use them before the items go in storage. Don’t loose all hope, some items can definitely be used for fall/early winter. Happy shopping!
