Cinzia Rocca, a ready-to-wear Italian design label, which is sold in high-end department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue, is currently holding a sample sale for their gorgeous Fall Coats in the Penthouse at 30 Park Avenue South. A satisfying and stunning selection, these designer coats are being sold at an extremely reasonable price given their high quality design, with a buy one get one half off draw in to top things off. The only bad news here is that all of the coats on sale — except for about ten or so — are a size 6 and a size 6 only.
To kick things off we’ll start with the lower priced items: the capes and short coats. Unless otherwise specified, all merchandise listed from here on out is a size 6 and please note, since this is a true blue sample sale, there is only one piece per design. The extremely sunny showroom provided ample lighting that accentuated the fabulous material of such items as the Angora and Wool Gray and White Herringbone Coat ($300, pictured), a Baby Llama and Wool Maroon Cape ($300, pictured), an Ivory Wool Short Coat w/ Tie ($300, pictured), and a Green Baby Llama and Wool Military Style Short Coat ($300, pictured).
Moving on up a price point, stand outs in this section were a beautifully colored Light Brown Wool Walking Coat w/ Sweater Sleeves ($400, pictured), a similarly colored Zip Up Wool Walking Coat w/ a Polyester Neck for chilly days ($400, pictured), an unbelievably soft Baby Llama Purple and Grey Walking Coat w/ Patent Leather Belt ($400), an interesting blend of Surialpaca and Wool on a Grey and Black Walking Coat ($400, pictured), and lastly a Baby Llama and Wool Purple Walking Coat with Angora Sleeves ($400, pictured).
As promised, there is a small assortment of various sized coats. With only about ten to choose from, it’s really hit or miss here. I saw a Long Red Walking Coat in Size 4 ($350, pictured), a Size 16 Black Cape ($300) and a Size 4 Camel Walking Coat ($400).
Now, back to the Size 6’s. Although the best of the collection lies within the walking and short coats, I did find a few long coats that would serve you well into the winter months. A Long Wool and Angora Olive Coat w/ Cashgora Neck ($500, pictured) caught my eye immediately, along with a Mohair, Llama, and Wool Black and White Long Coat ($500).
All coats with fur trim are $1,000, no matter what animal fur is featured. Here I found a Wool, Silk, and Agora Grey Short Coat w/ Rabbit Trim ($1,000, pictured) and a Wool and Angora w/ Alpaca Fur Walking Coat ($1,000, pictured).
The Cinzia Rocca Sample Sale couldn’t have arrived at a better time. As the mornings become chillier and daytimes become shorter, we are all currently in the market for Fall Coats. The best part about the sale is you can bring a fashion friendly pal along with you and share the buy one get one half off deal. If you and your best gal are a size 6 and have a few bucks to spend, then the Cinzia Rocca Sample Sale is your place for a high quality, soft, and gorgeous fall coat.
