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.

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.

Vince Sale for Men was Freakin Awesome

Vince Mens sample sale fall 2018

Right next door to the Kooples store, there was an awesome 3-day Vince sample sale for men hosted by Prive (although not in the regular Chelsea Market location). Although the girls on our team were sad not to get some Vince goodies, the guys were in seventh heaven.

The prices were reasonable for Vince but a bit high for many of our followers (mostly between $50 and $200) plenty of jackets, pants, shirts, sweaters and coats. If you’re a fan of the brand, this was a sale you definitely wouldn’t want to miss.

Satisfy Your Shoe Crush at the Shoe Inn Sample Sale

Shoe-Inn Sample Sale Review by ShopDrop NYC

By: Lindsey Castin

The Shoe Inn sample sale was a true heaven for shoe lovers. There were hundreds of shoe options organized by size (ranging from size 5 to size 10). They had leather boots, sandals, heels, rain boots, and anything you could possibly be looking for! On top of that, they were all from well-known brands (Calvin Klein, Frye, Rebecca Minkoff, Michael Kors, Vince, etc). The shoes were all priced based on designer but were mostly in the $30-$80 range. All of the shoes (excluding boots) were buy one get one free. How could you not find something you love? 100% worth checking out!
