Lanvin certainly isn’t the same without Albert Elbaz but that makes shopping past season’s fashion even more fun. Yesterday, Lanvin started a private, invitation only sample sale and today the company decided to open the sale to Mad-Spy readers only.
The invite above will give you exclusive access to one of our favorite sample sales of the season. Of course, we love this sale because the discounts are great. Clothing is reduced 90% off retail and all other items are discounted 80%. The other reason we love this sale is because of the amazing staff. The sale is very well organized and the sales people are among the sweetest we’ve ever encountered. Going to the Lanvin sale is like attending private bi-annual reunion.
To be totally truthful, the merchandise selection isn’t as amazing as some past sales. There are no bags, shoe sizes are very limited and the jewelry selection is tiny. That being said, we spotted a dreamy wedding gown that comes to about $2200 from $22,000. We spotted this white dress that comes to $400 from about $4000, there was also this jacquard pattern in different styles and some basic a-line dresses. We also found this exact animal print strapless style from 2015, which is very Elbaz.
There is also a great assortment of merchandise for men. We suggest that everyone grab a few bow-ties. You can’t go wrong for $25.
The sale runs through Wednesday. We don’t expect any additional markdowns, but really, how much more can prices be slashed?
