La Perla NYFW Sample Sale

La Perla NYFW sample sale

September in NYC usually means one thing…..Fashion Week is here! Ahh yes it’s that time when every fashionista can’t resist gushing over the latest runway fashions and everyone wants to play at being a street style star. NYFW has grown beyond just shows and exclusive crowds, nowadays there are lots of events and activities that are open to all. This brings us to this week’s NYFW inspired sample sale from La Perla. While the Italian brand is no stranger to hosting semi-annual sales this event promises to be their biggest yet, offering La Perla’s complete line of lifestyle products directly from Bologna, Italy. Discounts will be up to 80% off retail with a large selection of women’s lingerie, sleepwear, beachwear, RTW, shoes, accessories, and much more. There will also be a small selection of menswear. Read on below for all the important scoop.

The sale will kick off Tuesday morning and run for three days. In a departure from La Perla’s previous sample sales this event will not be hosted by 260 and will instead take place at Arno’s Ballroom in the Garment District. The organizers were kind enough to provide me with some major details on inventory and pricing and you can even view the full price list in photos below. Discounts will be up to 80% off retail with panties starting at $20, swimsuits $50, and shape wear just $35.
Other price point highlights:
Panties, Brazilian, G-String, Boy shorts, Boxers: $20
Bikini and Classic One Piece: $50
Beachwear, Wraps: $35
Shoes, Slippers, Sandals: $35
Accessories: $10 (garters, scarves, etc.)
With prices like that you definitely do not want to miss this sale! Now if that wasn’t enough, the sale will also offer exclusive European market only designs previously not available in US as well as current season styles! As always shop early for the best selection. Although there will also be daily restocking. Monday evening there will be a special pre-sale and you can email [email protected] for early access. Now go channel your inner Kendall Jenner and shop away!

*Updated with info and photos from inside the sale*
I’ve been to my fair share of sample sales over the years and thought I have seen it all. This week’s surprise La Perla sale was certainly not your typical event. For starters it’s located inside an active Italian Restaurant. The venue itself is fairly small compared to say 260’s SoHo location where past La Perla sample sales took place. A few paragraphs up you can see the info that was originally sent to me by the organizers but if you’ve been to this sale you’ll notice that pricing is quite different. I have updated the price list although it’s possible there have been further adjustments (i.e. increases).

I attended Monday’s pre-sale expecting to find footwear as well as some of the previously advertised bargain deals like $10 undies and accessories. Well….it seems like prices were a bit off. I was told that $10 panties were only select basic styles and were not currently available. Instead all underwear was priced at $25 each or 5 for $100. Meanwhile bras were priced at $40 each or 3 for $100. Hosiery was $25 or 5 for $100. Sizes were available from XS to L but not all styles had a great selection. Swimwear was $60 for one-piece or two-piece bikini set with 2 sets for $100. Coverups were $80 and all over items were priced at $100. Although it seems like later they added more merchandise from the higher tier categories priced at $200-$300. I’m not sure whether the shoes made an appearance yet but somehow I doubt that they’ll be priced at $35.

All in all there were good deals on lingerie and swimwear, especially if you bought in bulk but the changing price lists were annoying.

    They must have different pricing for Mon vs the public sale. I just went during the public hours yesterday and the prices were much higher. It was 40 for bras, undies and hosier and garters were 25 or 5 for 100, robes 150, swim 60 and coverups for 80. There were a lot of blouses (don't remember how much they were) and swim.
