One of the coolest hip brands out there right now, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville's fashion label Rag & Bone returned to Chelsea Market this week to host their belated winter sample sale. The brand may not be your typical go-to for creating romantic Valentine's Day outfits (unless, of course, you want that sexy urban city girl look) but the discounts at today's preview were as sweet as a box of chocolates.

A blast of cold air and slushy streets didn't deter shoppers from attending because the scene inside today's preview was as hectic as any previous Rag & Bone sample sale held at Chelsea Market. The label's easy-going designs were marked down reasonably and patrons were busily digging through winter styles to add to their closets. Some of the R&B hits from today's sale included the Sigrid wool-blend coat, Saunders leopard print shirt, Mira chunky sweater, Hailey Fair Isle sweater, Carley gingham shirt, Waterloo parkas, Sigrid leopard print coat, and Monaco moto jacket. Thankfully, prices didn't change much compared to last year's sale. Blazers & jackets were $250 & $300, coats were $350, leather dresses were $395, leather tops were $300, dresses were $195, pants were $125, tops were $115, and skirts were $150.

Over at the shoe section, I spotted several different designs like Kent slip-on sneakers, Rag & Bone for Hunter Wellington boots (both short & tall), Margot suede booties, Beeman loafers, Georgie espadrilles, Clarendon penny loafers, and Folsom croc-embossed sandals. As for prices, flat sandals were $100, sneakers & flats were $150, booties were $195, heels were $195, knee high boots were $300, and Hunter boots were $150 for short styles & $195 for tall.

The selection of handbags wasn't as diverse and well-stocked as the RTW but there were still several satchels and totes to choose from. I specifically noticed Pilot bags dominated the sale. The satchel version was available in walnut, beige, taupe canvas, and navy. In addition, I also saw Pilot totes in black, mini Pilot shoulder bags in suede, and Pilot clutches in black, white, and blue. Prices on bags ranged from $150 for clutches to $300 for large styles.

If you're shopping for your husband or boyfriend, R&B's signature casual menswear could be found on the lower level. Coats were $350, jackets were $250, shirts were $98, T-shirts were $65 & $40, sweaters were $110, and pants were $110.

The label's /JEAN line was available on the lower level as well. There were plenty of a nice denims, tees, sweaters, and leather jackets laid out on numerous tables. Jeans were $100, leather skirts were $350, denim jackets were $150, jeans were $98, and sweaters were $85.

According to an employee, inventory will be replenished throughout the sale and extra markdowns should come towards the end. The sale is scheduled to run through Sunday and judging by today's turnout, I suspect tomorrow's official opening will be full on havoc.

  1. How much is the parka?

  2. Anyone has been to the sale? A lot of people waiting in line?

  3. At the last season's sample sale, there were two racks in the women's section with TRUE samples where everything was in size 2 and 26 for bottoms, and they were additional 50% off from the sample sale prices. Did you see that this time around? Or if you know they will roll them out this yr again?

    1. Sorry Anonymous, I went hunting for samples and they're all the same price as regular items. I would say not worth it.

    2. Thanks for the feedback!

  4. I dont know what day you went but yesterday samples were on a different rack and had diff pricing than stock. Don't remember pricing but tees were $20. Also everything was additionally 25% off for the last day
