ALERT: Hermès Skipping Sept. Sale (and Possibly for the Year)

Parisian powerhouse Hermès will not be having a sample sale this month. For many New Yorkers and avid sample sale shoppers, the brand's bargain event has always been known as the pinnacle of all sales. Ask anyone fortunate enough to have attended one of the company's sales from long ago and he/she will tell you at least one wonderful story to gush over. Sadly, ever since the sale moved to Soiffer Haskin in 2010, that golden era is no more. With pricing and offerings on a noticeably worsening trajectory, the once revered sale has lost its mojo for sure. Hermès' very last sale in September '13 is a good example of how bad the sale has gotten. But still, to learn that the brand won't be having a sample sale this September (and probably for the year) is truly a tragedy. Perhaps it's because the house is reportedly doing so well (Hermès made $2.5 billion in the last 6 months) but September just won't be the same without their legendary event.

  1. I say good riddance. It only gave us false hope of scoring a great deal in the past year or so. I'm sure they will still have a sample sale, but for employees/family & friends only. BTW, Marc by Marc Jacobs has a sample sale a few weeks ago in a secret location for employees and friends & family. All clothing was only $5 and purses were $15 to $25 each. My ex-coworker went and walked out with a garbage bag full of stuff for only $150.

    1. Hi Alexandra,

      We can all agree the sale isn't what it used to be but not having one at all is disappointing.

      Yup, it was the same day as the start of the Barneys Warehouse Sale. Tweeted the details.

      Thank you for always commenting!

    2. Agreed. I totally missed your post. I'll go back to check. I was so upset when she sent me a few pics of her finds. I couldn't believe I missed it.

    3. Also, thank you for always delivering. I am kind of upset now that I think of it. I'm expecting my second child this fall and was hoping this upcoming Hermes sample sale had some infant booties. I guess I have to buy them full price now. :(

    4. CONGRATULATIONS!
      Hermès makes amazing baby products but so does Baby Dior. If you haven't already, you should definitely check them out.
