*SAMPLE SALE* Gucci

Gucci is holding a very sub-rosa sample sale at Soiffer Haskin this week open exclusively to their employees and F&F. The brand has hosted invite-only sales several times in the past and offered incredible discounts on handbags, shoes, RTW, and other accessories. My contact at the company tells me that this year's sale will be even better (read: extra special reduced prices). The reason behind it is that if you remember this past May, the label tried to clear out former Creative Director Frida Giannini's final collection by slashing their entire Spring '15 catalogue half off. So to liquidate all of the remaining inventory that is still lingering around, Gucci is using this opportunity to clean up house. As the sale opens its doors today with a nearly-impossible-to-sneak-in door policy, I suggest you contact your SA or someone you know at Kering pronto. And if by any sliver of a chance Gucci graciously opens the sample sale to the public, like Versace did this week (hey, you never know!), I will make sure to let all of my fellow Mizhattanites know.

Where: 317 W. 33rd St. (near 8th Ave.)

When: Wednesday, October 28th, 4:30pm~8:30pm (employee only)
Thursday, October 29th, 9am~6:30pm
Friday, October 30th, 9am~6:30pm
Saturday, October 31st, 9am~6:30pm
Sunday, November 1st, 10am~2pm

    1. No the post is complete hype!

      Delete
  19. How come you say every sale is going to open. These big employee sales never do. You just post these stories for hype.

    1. English, do you read it? Where do she say the sale is going to open? She says if by a 'silver of a chance' then she would let us know. Jeez some people have no gratitude.

      Delete
    2. Miz never says a private sale WILL open, she just posts info for people who want to either try their luck or so readers will know in case they do open.

      Gucci's yearly sale has a long history of never opening to the public and always being 90% off. The only one's saying that it might open to the public are readers, not Miz.

      I for one APPRECIATE all the post Miz puts up. Even on sales I haven't been able to get into.

      Delete
    3. There is not even a "silver" (or did you mean sliver, English professor) of a chance the public will be allowed in. Why even promote the event? It's just cheap hype.

      Delete
    4. The same could be said for the recent Versace sale. Last 5 years it's never opened to the public yet this year it did.

      This years Fendi sale did not open to the public yet the one before did.

      And being informed never hurt anyone.

      What one takes from this information is on them.

      Delete
    5. So all you can do is attack my typo? Seriously Anonymous @12:05 AM hit the nail on the head. Having more information never hurt anyone. If Miz did not write the private Versace sale people never would have known it was open to public. If you have a better more reliable source than Miz by all means go there!!

      Delete
    6. She never said it will be open to the public. Please read the entire post carefully before writing this type of comment. Many readers appreciate Miz's posts even if it's private.

  20. I saw a group of hopeful rapper wanna-be's camped out on 33rd on my way home from work last night. Slaves to the label!

  21. Just want to confirm it will not be open to public today?

    1. I work a block away and just walked by on way back from lunch. It is still closed to the public. The people you see waiting in line across the street are all on invite list and waiting for their turn.

      Delete
  22. The sale is still private. So I came with my cousin this morning at 7. You not only have to be on the list, they are checking your id. Not many women's shoes left but come if you are on the list. Not really a line now.

    ReplyDelete
  23. We left about an hour ago and all I can say is it's worth it!!!! This is the kind of sample sale you want!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Any word the sale may open to the public before end of tmr?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Did they restock @harlem77? Want last night and there was not a lot of bags.

    ReplyDelete
  26. They did not say if it will open to the public tomorrow and if they did restock, it was very minimal. The selection and style in bags to me were limited. I am sure if it opens to the public, Miz will certainly put it out there which I hope she does for folks.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Any updates about being open to the public today?

    1. Still a long line. Still checking against the list.

    All rest not sold out is going to be burn
    Gucci like hermes or lv do not want bring company down with to low price that why is only for friends and family !!!!

    1. That's why people dressed in non-name-brand clothing were hoarding multiple handbags of the same kind? I guess they are not purchasing for resell? (sarcasm intended). Gucci's bottom line has been slumping in the past few years. Even their online Gucci sales have been amazing, 50% to 60% off. So, your statement is super inaccurate.

      Gucci has been heading in the same direction as Coach. Years ago, you couldn't even get a Coach bag on sale. Nowadays, the handbags are super cheap. No brand is immune.

    2. Ha! Hermes has open sample sales at least yearly. As a matter of fact, one just passed.

      Delete
    3. GIRL YOU HAVE TO GO TO COACH THIS POINT

      Delete
    4. Ditto, some people really looked like they don't own one piece of luxury item, yet buying way too much stuff. Last year's sale was better.

      Delete
    5. This years sale had double the invites, that's why last years sale was so much better.

      Alessandro Michele is on record as saying he wants to take the brand on a new direction and the company wants to get rid of all the old stock.

      The online sale next month is going to be amazing as well.

      Delete
    6. Any intel on the online sale next month? How much the discount would be?

      Delete
  30. Girls relax
    All hermes of versace
    Yes they open for everyone but who care with 50-60% !!!!!
    The gucci sample sale was 90-95%
    That why is totally diferent story !!!!!
    NO SAMPLE SALE BEEN MARK DOWN TO 95%

    ReplyDelete

    1. The sample sale has past season items and is limited to ugly canvas bags. The regular sale had more desirable handbags marked down from $3K-$4K

      Delete
    2. There are a lot of sales that go down to 90% off.

      Versace was just 90% off, Burberry is usually 90% off. Jimmy choo has many items 90% off. Fendi has most of their stuff 90% off.

      Actually most of the above brand I just mentioned will have their sample sales with item 95% off too.

      And the left over items are not going to be burned, they will be sold off at the online sale next month, sent off to choice outlets and sold off to discount department stores like TJ Maxx and the Rack.

      Delete
    3. When and Where is the Burberry Sale ? Do you think the Gucci Leftovers are at the outlet at good prices ?

      Delete
