This is the first time Sachin and Babi partnered with Malone Souliers for a sample sale. The sale took place in a showroom on 29th st that was spacious and well lit.
For Sachin and Babi, the pricing was a bit more complicated than last time. Samples were a bit pricier, stock not as expensive, and multiple items in stock got deals, where you buy 2 items and get a certain amount off each unit. There were dresses, gowns, earrings and separates in many sizes. The sample racks lined the back of the room. Fitting room was in the middle of the room with mirrors centered there as well.
For Malone Souliers, the tables with shoes lined the wall with the windows. There were 8-9 styles, but in a large variety of sizes. There were heels and flats at the beginning of the night, but the flats sold out quite fast. All shoes are a flat $195 (plus tax). Compared to a $595 retail price – we say – okay.
Definitely check this sale out if you’re still looking for items to wear before the holidays.
We are clearly biased because we at ShopDrop run this Sachin & Babi sale, but given the merchandise and pricing, it’s really difficult to beat this one in terms of how amazing the sale is. There are samples that go for $40 for short skirts and tops, $75 for gowns and jackets.
Stock items are pricier but still a great deal for items that retail at $455 and up. At the sale, stock items range from $60 for earrings to $100 for separates, $200 for cocktail dresses and $300 for evening gowns.
On Instagram we did our first ever styling try-on videos for looks and received a ton of positive and encouraging feedback! Make sure you are following us on Instagram so you don’t miss more events.
Most of the sample sale is on the fancier side – if you’re looking for evening gowns or to outdo the bride at a friends wedding, make sure to check this one out!
The Sachin & Babi sale is opening on Monday and we were lucky to get a sneak peak. In summary, the merchandise is sick and the prices are even sicker. If you have the opportunity to get there next week, drop everything and go. Below I am including images and price lists from the sale. Remember to mention that you found out about the sale through ShopDrop and next time our users will get early access!
The showroom is in the brand office, which means that prices are low. Items start at $5 and don’t go higher than $200. For gowns that retail at $1,900 this is a steal. The sale includes both stock and samples. Items are from the most recent 2017 season and there are plenty of sizes. I saw a number of size 10 gowns. There were tons of gowns, dresses, tops, skirts, pants, shorts, sweaters, belts and jewelry.
A bit about the Sachin & Babi brand. Trained by Oscar de la Renta himself, Sachin created his own brand in 2009, which is haute couture, young and vivacious all at once.
