Maje Sample Sale Review
The French label Maje drew a steady stream of women of all ages to their sample sale at 150 Green Street, which runs through Sunday, April 20th. The offerings include a small selection of handbags, footwear, jackets, dresses, separates, denim, and knitwear. Unlike some sales that are held at this location, for this event they do provide dressing areas, (albeit small and crowded,) for patrons.
As usual, the highest savings are on higher ticket items such as leather jackets. For example, the black, leather and suede jacket, embellished with oversized silver grommets is only $245, (originally priced at $945). While there was a variety of sizes from T1- T3, (French sizing for small to large,) most of the sizes are on the smaller end which appears to be an accurate description for most of the merchandise. If you are attending this event, chances are you are already familiar with the fit – (very slim,) of this French label. An image of the French – to – American sizing guide has been included in the images; as you can see the size T3 translates to a French size large, which further translates to a U.S. size 6-8.
Handbags – almost exclusively variations of the signature Maje bag – (a slim, square-shaped, shoulder bag with fringed sides,) are available in beaded and leather styles for $65-$95, (originally priced as high as $345). The footwear options include – chunky block-heeled sandals, suede lace-up gladiator sandals, espadrilles, strappy sky-high stilettos, and flatforms priced at $95. While sizing options vary by style – leather footwear that is both high-quality and commuter-friendly is worth the investment.
The denim selection is also limited in styles, but worth a look since seasonal appropriate jeans – such as the acid-washed denim are priced at just $65. The separates selection does have a large selection of skirts overall – from knee-length styles to micro-miniskirts. Standout pieces include a black and white chevron thick-knit micro-mini; and a fiery red mini-skirt with fringe trim both priced at only $75, (originally priced at $295 and $275, respectively). In my opinion, chinoiserie is always on point, so of course the black, lightweight, viscose jacquard kimono, with contrast emerald piping, caught my eye. While the knitwear offerings are few, the blue viscose-wool blend sweater with a low-V back is simultaneously cozy and sexy – the quintessence of French-girl chic.
