Theory & Helmut Lang Sample Sale Review

0
21 July 2015

Missed last month’s Theory and Helmut Lang sales? Get severely marked down pieces from both brands this week at their joint sale at Clothingline. While the showroom is dominated by Theory pieces in neutral, office-appropriate colors, the edgier Helmut Lang still has a strong, more colorful presence.

All tops, sweaters, and t-shirts are $50. This is a steal for the top-notch knits and unique tops, but, unfortunately, such finds are rare in a sea of plain T-shirts. Although the T-shirts are well-made, $50 still feels exorbitant for a plain white T.

Theory’s bottom’s section is dominated by classic dress pants, while Helmut Lang provides distressed skinny jeans and health-goth approved leggings. All pants are $50. Neither brand had a robust selects of $55 shorts or $50 skirts.

The $70 dresses were abundant in the Theory section, but they were mostly basic shifts. The Helmut Lang dress selection is even smaller, but the styles are more unique. I did not see any jumpsuits.

Theory’s $90 blazer selection is overflowing. I didn’t spot Theory outwear, but there were a few $155 Helmut Lang coats. There are also tons of $90 sweatshirts spread throughout the floor.

Unfortunately, these low prices come at a cost. Many of the pieces are damaged. They have helpfully marked most of the damaged goods, but even some unmarked pieces are damaged. Don’t let the damaged label deter you, though. Many of the damages are so minor that I had trouble finding them after close examination.

The showroom was not particularly busy; there was no line to get into, nor was there a line of the communal fitting room. The sale ends on Thursday, July 23th.
