Hold on to your scarves and mittens. Yes, it’s another designer sample sale and just in time for Christmas too. The Secret Sample Sale and the London Accessory Sale take place conjointly at Chelsea Old Town Hall, London on December 18. Not that I’m suggesting this is a good opportunity to tick off some Christmas shopping, but rather a sly opportunity to treat yourself.
On offer at up to a 90% on catwalk, studio, showroom samples and clearance stock are big names including Jonathan Saunders, Biba, Prada, Gucci, Chloe, Missoni, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry, to name but a few.
I’ve attended this sale before and can hand on heart say that it is a struggle to walk away empty handed. Alongside the big names, which inevitably get snapped up quickly are some brilliant up and coming designers and smaller boutique and high street brands. But if you don’t want to risk being disappointed you can join the sample sales mailing list and get exclusive members only access to a pre sale shopping day on December 17 from 1pm to 9pm.
