Minimalists mark your calendars--the Jil Sander sample sale will begin next week. The sale doesn't officially open to the public until Tuesday, April 16th but Jil Sander insiders will be able to start shopping a day early during the VIP preview.
As fans already know, this is a final opportunity to Raf Simon’s last collection. Prices will be a steep 80% to 85% discount.
At last year’s sale, the selection was mostly black wool and basic fall and winter clothing marked 85% off. Lightweight cashmere sweaters for $127 were among the first items to go, although there were plenty of separates in the $50 to $100 range. Classic black wool sheath dresses were a fail safe at just under $160 and there was a good selection of wool outerwear that hovered near the $270 mark. At the last sale were were not particularly impressed by the selection of 80% off leather accessories and handbags.
While the VIP day is invite only --and there is a list at the door-- smooth talkers may have some luck towards the afternoon on Monday. Take note that VIPs do tend to scoop up some of the most highly desirable items, so determined Raf Simons fans may want to be resourceful.
