*SAMPLE SALE* Back to Schoul(er)

I fell in love with the last Proenza Schouler sample sale, so I braved the below freezing temps and headed back to PS in Soho.

Compared to the last sample sale, it was obvious that many Proenza Schouler fans decided to delay their trip to (or totally forgo) this sale due to the unpleasant weather. When the doors opened at 9am, there were only a handful of people queued to enter.

First thing I noticed was the large patent white PS1 bags sitting on the accessory table. Only two were available and in less than a minute, they were gone. Since they were now someone's prized treasure, I focused my attention on the other items on the table. There were a few heavy winter sweaters, belts, and bags (from Fall '09 collection) in brown and black. If you are a shoeaholic looking for shoes, I'm sorry to disappoint but there was only 1 pair.

Moving onto clothes, plenty of Lazaro Hernandez & Jack McCollough's creative designs from their Fall/Winter 2010 collection were up for grabs. There were lots of eye–catching patterns and motives. A rack full of Proenza Schouler x J Brand limited–edition jeans & tops really caught my attention. The jeans were priced $165 per pair. I really loved the fur collar jacket in classic PS stripes (4th photo below), but only size 6 was available and it was priced $1,290. A fabulous baseball jacket/blazer (5th photo below) was $510 while a disco sequin top in size 2 (9th photo below) was $450. A glittery rainbow tweed skirt (10th photo below) was $845 and a tweeded trench coat was $375. If you are a big trend-conscious fashionista, this season's Yeti–inspired jackets (priced $1,710) & coats (priced $930) could be found at this sale.

Overall, there were a few pieces that were reasonably priced but most were still quite expensive. There was a sample rack with pants in winter fabrics priced between $30~$90, but that was it. On my way out, I asked an employee if the prices would drop on Thursday (last day), but she wasn't sure.
