Our Detailed Written Report from the Chloe Sample Sale

Chloe sample sale shopdrop review

Given that photos were strictly prohibited at the Chloe sample sale, we collected testimony from a number of ShopDrop users to come up with the following report.
Overall, we gave the sale an 8/10 because there was a huge selection but the prices were more attainable on the See by Chloe collection. And because there weren’t any Chloe bags left by the time we got there.

The sample sale has all seasons of clothes: winter sweaters and coats, summer dresses and tops skirts – everything. Collection includes items from current and past seasons. No actual samples. See by Chloe clothes retail $300-600 and then are 80% off at the sample sale, which makes it worthwhile. Lots of white and black solid separates.

Definitely worth checking out. One reason we took away points was because there were more Chloé clothes and only a few racks of see by Chloe, so selection of more affordable items wasn’t as abundant. There were quite a few wallets and a few gold rings and necklaces. Also, a huge selection of shoes in sizes and color.

For die-hard Chloe fans, the sale was probably a 9/10. Only downside is the bags.

We already knew that Sachin & Babi was one of the best sample sales in NY given the value/price ratio, that’s why we were absolutely delighted to partner with the brand on an early access offering. Over 100 ShopDroppers came to check out the sample sale the night before opening. Most people left with large bags in their hands and smiles on their faces. Samples were over 90% off, with $900 items selling for as low as $75. And stock was over 80% off as well. Considering the extraordinary quality of items, it was hard to leave clothes on hangers. The sale opens to the public today, make sure this one is on your hit list.

Shoe Heaven for Size 9 at the Jerome Dreyfuss Sample Sale

Jerome Dreyffus, the brand over which Hillary Swank obsesses, hosted a sample sale in SoHo this week. Although we only made it to the sale on the very last day, we still got a feel for the beautiful aura of the Jerome Dreyffus brand. Located in SoHo and occupying two store lots, the sample sale took place within the Jerome Dreyfuss boutique. The setup was original: an open rectangle with handbags of all sizes and shapes – these are true samples and they are 60%-80% off retail prices, which leaves them at $110-$400 at the sample sale. Along the rectangle on the floor were shoes, boots and sneakers – flats, heels and wedges. These were priced between $150 and $350  -and all of them were size 9. We’ll try to hit up the next sale before the last day so you could still reap the benefits! Prices and images below. Enjoy!

Replenish Your Closet at the Jason Wu Sample Sale

Jason Wu Sample Sale

 

By: Cristina Martin 

If you are willing to lay out the $$$, t’s worth leaving your cozy home to go to the Jason Wu sample sale. Head down to SoHo to score tops, bottoms, accessories, and even evening gowns. They also have a small section of Manolo Blahnik shoes! Jason Wu retail prices are $800+. At the Jason Wu sample sale you will find tops for $100, leather bottoms for $175, shoes (including the Manolo’s) for $125, and dresses for $275. This is your chance to get great deals on high-end fashion. The selection was plentiful, however, the discounts weren’t that impressive. Gowns that retail for $1,600 were on sale for $850 at the sample sale – not a great discount for someone who lives and breathes sample sales. Zip up your coat, and get out there before they’re all gone.

What: Jason Wu Sample Sale
When: Jan. 16 – Jan. 21, 2018
Where: 150 Greene St.

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.
