Notes from the La Perla Sample Sale

yes, that is on sale. a rack full of befeathered bras, bodysuits & panties. so, so many feathers.

Notes from the La Perla sample sale this morning (I got there around 10.30am with a Gilt City early-access ticket).
- sign at 225 5th ave says "pop-up store"
- bag check is mandatory
- about 50 person capacity
- A-cup bras are in the same pile as E-cup, selection isn't great
- all other bra sizes have their own bucket
- la perla basics (white, "nude", black) bras & bottoms are separate from the "fashion" bras & bottoms
- lots of robes, chemises & some swimwear
- hosiery selection is pretty limited, lots of thigh-highs. size variety for white tights but not black
- pricing varies on the line: la perla, black label, glamour, villa toscana bras are $80 each (2 for $140). malizzia, studio, occhi verdi are $50 (2 for $80). chemises, bottoms, bodysuits, robes, etc vary accordingly.
- a few sample shoes are out, some heels & slippers
- a rack or two of mens swim trunks
- lots of floor-length robes & chemises, though sizes are limited on the racks. there are a few employees replenishing as the sale goes on
