Missoni & Valentino sample sale is always good news. It is the opportunity to buy some pretty stuff at reasonable prices. After all, sale means value for money. But the sale organizer had made it into a mixed bag sale with different labels and designer goods interspersed with each other and turned it into more of a luxury sale. It had turned into a vast melting pot of designers. Though, I must admit that the bulk of the stock was from Missoni & Valentino. The other fashion labels like Giorgio Armani, John Galliano, Choles and Prada had small collections her and there.
There was a whole range of stuff from Valentino on sale including elegant laces, ruffles, and signature reds. All the best stuff from Valentino was available at the sale but the prices weren’t as pleasing. The prices were similar to what you see at any boutique or department store sale. People who are now getting used to private flash sales expect these especially organized sales to get big labels at small prices. But here the Valentino dresses were $1,500 and above.
The Missoni section seems to have better deals in terms of pricing. Good skirts in iconic Missoni stripes & prints were all under $400. In fact a knit skirt was available for $260. In other labels a dress from Emporio Armani collection was particularly pretty and priced at $550. Chloe Silverado handbags were scaled down from 41,440 to $ 936. Necktie for men seemed to be the best deal at the sale. Designer neckties were $40 a piece or 3 for $100. In my overall assessment the stock and the designer stuff available at the sale was pretty good with some really stunning pieces but the prices were on the higher side and did not meet the expectation of an average buyer.
