The Luxe Market’s two-day sample sale featuring the iconic Italian designer Roberto Cavalli was off to a simmering start this Tuesday morning. This sale is very organized, with womenswear located at the storefront, and menswear in the back. The sale has minimal offering for Cavalli handbags and accessories.
The discount on almost all merchandise is priced at a rarely seen discount of up to 90% off the original ticket price. Perhaps the recent bankruptcy filing of the North American subsidy which owned the Roberto Cavalli boutiques in the United States prompted the liquidation-level prices. As of April 4th, 2019, all twelve of Cavalli’s North American stores were shuttered.
The silver lining, of course; Cavalli’s flamboyant and over-the-top designs are available at a literal fraction of the original ticket price. For womenswear, highlights include bohemian-influenced, leopard-trimmed, patchwork denim, priced $120, (orig. $1200). A black mini-dress with mirrored sequin applique in a crocodile skin motif is a classic – Roberto Cavalli design while still maintaining the qualifications of a LBD; is priced at $299.50, (orig. $2995). Most of the merchandise is available in sizes 36-40, or a women’s small to medium.
The menswear department has substantially more to offer, and the discounts are just as deep. The selection includes full-suits, suit jackets, trousers, shirts, and tees. For menswear, highlights include this black, leather, aviator style jacket at only $299, (orig. $2990). But perhaps the best deal to be had are the men’s suits. This two-piece classic, black, notched-collared suit with pick-stitched lapels is only $199, (orig. $1990). The only caveat is that most of the suits available are approximately a European size 50, which translates to a men’s chest size of 38 inches and a waist of 34 inches.
As for the footwear, while Luxe Market does have ample offerings of other high-end designers – Gianvito Rossi, Celine, Balenciaga, etc. They only have four styles of Roberto Cavalli footwear – and they are all “commuter” shoes, which, let’s be honest, that’s just what the fashion cognoscenti has renamed sneakers to make the often $800 pricetag seem more justifiable. The “commuter” shoes are priced at $199, (orig. $695).
