Proenza Schouler Sample Sale Review
The Proenza Schouler sample sale started yesterday morning at C21 Editions, and brought huge crowds with it. For those dedicated enough to brave the masses, you’ll find an assortment of investment pieces and great deals.
Denim products have the most straight-forward pricing. Jeans are $29 to $55, down from $295 to $385; denim jackets are $99, previously $495; and denim vests are $69, down from $395. A pair of splattered jeans were $119, marked down from $395.
Other bottoms were far more expensive—and more erratically priced. Leather pants ranged from $69 to $278, a tweed skirt was $345, and a pair of cotton shorts were $555. A pair of culottes were a whopping $735.
Plain T-Shirts were $42, but a T-Shirt with leather details was $1,035. Confusingly, a fully-leather shirt was only $163. Sweaters were mostly in the $100 to $200 range.
Coats ranged from $595 for a leather trimmed option to $1,950 for a shearling number. Leather moto jackets ranged from $885 to $1185.
While there were a handful of plain dresses for $69, expect to pay at least a few hundred for most options. This includes dresses made out of the similar material to the $69 dress—give up looking for any rhyme or reason in these prices. The most expensive dress was $3,750.
There were very few bags left around noon. You’ll have the best luck with the $99 shearling pouches; the handbags that remained included a $8,400 Elliot satchel in cobalt crocodile, a splattered black and white Elliot shoulder bag for $2,093, and a $425 bucket bag in red velour. Printed canvas bags are $79, and small leather cardholders are $49.
The shoe supply was also dwindling. Sizes 36-40 are represented, but you’ll have the best luck finding pairs under 38. Most heels were $269, while flats ranged from $99 to $255.
All the merchandise is already out, so hurry over if you want to scoop up the best deals. The sale runs through Thursday, July 16th.
