Prabal Gurung Sample Sale One More Day!

Guest feature by BeSpoke Bargains

The Prabal Gurung sample sale opened to much fanfare yesterday morning. When I entered the showroom shortly after 10:30am, there were more shoppers than I have ever seen at Prabal Gurung sale before. As I was leaving staff was controlling the number of people in/out of the space, and there was a small line accumulating in the entryway. This sale holds a special place in the history of Bespoke Bargains. It’s a sale I’ve personally been visiting for years, and it’s also the first sale I ever posted about (in fact, it’s my very first post!)

The last PG sale I attended in 2016 offered flat pricing that ranged from $50 knits (including cashmere) to $95 jackets/coats and $100 dresses.  There are usually two PG sample sales per year, and I’ve learned that pricing tends to swing like a pendulum. One sale they raise prices; the next they drop.Prabal Gurung sample sale red dress Prabal Gurung sample sale black pearl dress

Compared to the last sale—where pricing was flat by category—this sale is definitely more expensive. However it is definitely fair to say that the quality of merchandise here is much higher. There is a lot of merchandise from Resort/Spring ’17 as well as odds and ends from previous collections. Many items are production pieces that are new with tags, but there are a lot of archive and production samples, too. Items are individually marked (or denoted by colored dots), and prices range from $50 to $450. The only flat pricing for RTW is gowns which are all $450 and cashmere sweaters which are $200. The biggest savings today are on gowns and embellished cocktail dresses. Multiple sizes and colors were available in this Silk Pearl Embellished Party Dress which retailed for $3,250.00. Sample sale price was just $350—nearly 90% off!  Gowns ultimately come to about 90% off as well. The median price point for dresses is $175. That includes some recent styles like this Off-The-Shoulder Tiered Ruffle Cotton Dress which retailed for $1,450.00, but mostly encompasses older pieces.

 For under $100, you can find lots of pants, skirts and tops  including pieces like this This Hankerchief Hem Skirt which is reduced to $85 from $1,095.00, or this Tunic Blouse which is also reduced to $85 from a retail of $695.00.

There is a small fitting room in the back left corner of the room, but it fills up fast and most women (myself included) were trying items on right off the rack. Shoes are also located near the fitting room and mostly heels and booties are available. Pricing on shoes is a little high in my opinion ($150 for unworn, $100 for samples, $275 for boots) and most shoppers weren’t really going through them.
