Today marked the beginning of the bi-annual Diane von Furstenberg sample sale. As usual, wrap dresses and wonderful silk prints were plentiful. Prices, however have gone up a bit from last season.
In prior seasons, blouses and sweaters were $80 but this season they are priced at $90. The biggest price jump was in the handbag and leather goods section. Last season, bags topped out at $250 but this season they are priced up to $285.
It’s not surprising that DVF has raised their prices. Since we started covering the sale in 2009, prices have remained the same. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for retail price tags.
Those shopping the DVF online sample sale will be less satisfied. Online dresses range from $150 to $337. If you’re in the market for really great prices, we suggest waiting for markdowns at the Flatiron sale. We suspect discounts will start Wednesday afternoon. Inventory is replenished throughout the sale, so don’t be shy about stalk-shopping. Prices for this season and last season are below.
