After experiencing orange overload at the Hermes sample sale we headed to The Row's sale. As always the ambiance was considerably more mute and civilized. This afternoon's VIP preview provided a wide assortment of the brand's timeless classics.
Prices are the same as last year. All clothing is discounted 70% off and bags are 60% off. We are happy to report that there are more bags than ever. We found lots of hobos and backpacks, along with clutches and handbags. They had Market Bags and this multi-pocket bag.
Folded on tables were the brand's heavenly sweaters that ranged in price from $285 to $450 after the discount. Over on the hanging clothing we found two to three racks for each size-- zero to 12. As usual, size zero had the smallest selection. This time around we didn't see many leather dresses or pants. There were only a few pieces in each size. Prices for leather goods range from $900 to $1200 from retail prices that span $3000 to $4000.
Among the clothing we spotted this Kenning dress for $180 reduced from $590 and this blouse that came to $237 from $790. We were very excited to snatch this long cashmere coat for about $870 from $2900 and this school boy jacket for $400 from $1325. We also found these polos for $255 from $850 and this Fessing coat that comes to $750 from $2500.
We were sad not to find any sunglasses.
After spending the morning with Hermes fanatics we were happy to be in the civilized company of The Row fans. As usual, this sale is always a welcome reprieve from the frenzy of most sample sales. While you're in the building be sure to check back at Bonpoint's sale. Prices were reduced to 75% off. Head this way to see our full review.
