You probably just started unwrapping your Halloween candy but those in the wholesale business are wrapping up the holiday business season. Global Fashions, which is the official luxury distributor for several Italian designer brands including couture items, will be opening its showroom to the public for a pre-holiday sample sale.
If you’ve been to a Global Fashions sale before you probably know the treasures that behold. We got a sneak peak while the sale was being set up and can honestly say that this is the most incredible Global Fashions sale ever. Discounts will range from 70% to 80% off. Shoes, bags, accessories, and jewelry will be reduced by 70% off retail, designer clothing will be discounted 75%, and Couture will be 80% off.
This is the first time Global Fashions has brought Stuart Weitzman to its sample sale customers and we have never seen such an amazing sale selection. The assortment includes all of the designer’s famous classics and they are all 70% off retail. Midland suede over-the-knee boots are just $240 from $800, slouchy boots are about $270 from nearly $900, and mid-calf stretchy suede boots are about $170 from $575. There are lots of 5050 options, legend pumps, and bags too. Take note, each person will only be able to purchase a maximum of ten pairs of shoes. (Click over to see pictures of some of the samples we spotted.)
Another sale highlight is M.Missoni, which is discounted 75% off. We spotted a classic double-breasted wool coat reduced to $250 from nearly $1000 and a tweed jacket is $218 from $895. There are also lots of the designer’s famous knit dresses, sweaters, and skirts.
Moving on to Global Fashions most popular feature, Rockstuds. Yes, there are a lot. We spotted all the classics heels and bags during set-up. There is black-on-black, bi-colored and even some tri-colored pumps and flats. There is also an entire section of red-box boots along the farthest back wall. You won’t want to miss the studded loafers and sneakers too. Among the bags, the are top-handle Glamlocks and camo totes. (You can stalk pictures of some of our favorites over here.)
The couture is always what melts our hearts at these sales. We found a one-of-a-kind carwash style leather skirt with silver plates and there is even a matching bag. A coat that’s hand embroidered with bird and flower motifs is like a fine work of art and is priced at $2000 from $10,000. A maxi-pleated leather skirt with flower details is $2200 from $11,500 and a classic black dress with illusion not even $1500 from $4500. The sale also includes a full rack of furs that are some of the most beautiful we’ve ever seen. (Click for pics.)
It’s pretty apparent that Global Fashions has really brought out the best-of-the-best. There is a great designer find for most every budget. This is a sale you’re not going to want to miss. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you.
