Sonia Rykiel Sample Sale – Gorgeous and Expensive

sonia rykiel sample sale fall 2019

We got a sneak peak of the Sonia Rykiel sample sale today (as did our VIPs) and here’s what we think in a nutshell: great stuff, very expensive.

When you walk into the room, the hallway area is filled with bags, that range from $125 to $300. Some people were complaining that the bags were $100 at the last sale and are $125 now, but all in all, a lot of people walked out with bags.

The inner room was filled with clothes. Boxes of knits in the center and racks with sweaters, dresses, skirts and pants around the perimeter of the room. There were signs on the wall with pricing. Sweaters ranged from $110 to $300, skirts were $175, short dresses $225 and longer dresses for $300.

Should you go? That ultimately depends on how much you care about the price and how much you are interested in spending. I loved the stuff, but did not want to spend $300 on a sweater so 6.5 out of 10 for me.

Sonia Rykiel Sample Sale in NY Offering Merchandise for 90 Percent Off

As New Yorkers who are used to the brands that host sample sales bi-annually, we were excited to see some fresh brands join the scene. Particularly, the Sonia Rykiel sample sale. The sample sale took place at the brand showroom on 57th St. Unlike many other sales, this one opened on a Sunday. By the time of opening at 11AM, there were over 100 people waiting in line.

The Sonia Rykiel is famous for sweaters and knitwear, which retail in the thousands. At the sale, items were $110-$150. There was a lot of merchandise at the sale as well: from casual blazers to sequined sweaters and lacy dresses. The outerwear was 90% off retail – and really unusual pieces. Clothing for kids was in a separate room as well.

The center of the room had a table with handbags selling for $300. More than we would like to spend but for some people might be worth it. I walked away with a shearling coat for $226 that retails for $2,260 so that was win for me.
