Loro Piana's luxurious cashmere tops, sweaters and scarves are placed on isles of huge tables. From the softest knitwears to light–as–a–feather scarves, there were tons of Piana's classic items in a plethora of gorgeous hues. The discount on sweaters is now 60% off and scarves have been reduced 50%. Many of the silk and cashmere scarves retailed at about $1100 and are now $550. Most sweaters range from about $600 to about $800 and now ring in at about $240 to $320. (Click over this way to see pictures.)
The inventory is really wonderful at this sale and it's not often that you can find such a selections with discounts this low. If you can't make it to the sale we found some similar items reduced at Neiman Marcus. For example this cashmere sweater is discounted 70% off online and on another site we spotted this print scarf that's priced similarly here.
Women's clothing hanging on racks are discounted 50%. Among the 'racked' clothing you'll find various slacks, shirts and skirts. Coats and outerwear, many with fur accents, are discounted 50%. Considering that we are going into Spring, it's a bit hard to fork over these larger sums of money. For example, a double faced cashmere jacket is still over $3000 after the discount.
The most discounted items are 70% off and include bags, shoes and fabric bolts. Booties are about $400 from $1350 and men's 'roadsters' are $270 from $950. Suede cross-body bags are $330 from $1150 and a medium size reversible bag is about $1000 from over $3000.
The sale was extremely quite. There were more employees on the floor than shoppers. We aren't sure if there will be more discounts before the sale wraps up on Thursday. Cashmere lovers who don't mind making a fashion investment will be provided with enough options to warm your heart through next Winter.
