This is the first time The Arrivals and Faith Connexion are having a sample sale in NY. I was excited to check out The Arrivals as I love the simplicity and balanced style of their outerwear products but not the price tag.
There are over 45 styles to choose from. The sale price is determined by the style. You have to check for the style name on the inside of the jacket. For $100 you can get the Ashlar, Lassen, Lykke, Dixon, and Jasper. in the $150 category there is the Aando, Haring, Ponti, Element, Breuer, frei, Vault, Malcolm, Meier, Finn, Element, Haver, Dixon, Rohe, and Eero. $250 buys you the Fuller, Arne, Mir, Lee, Kahn, Petra, Otto, Moller, Artemis, Atlas, and Scarpa. For $350 you can purchase the Lautner, Bond, Oster, Lassen, Vader, and Milo. Finally in the $450 category there is the Halstrom, Vader II, Bond II, and Preston.
Prices are more or less 55% off retail. These prices aren't rock bottom but it's probably the cheapest you'll find anywhere. I would wait for the weekend when markdowns usually occur.
On the other side of the venue, RTW from Faith Connexion are on racks. There are lots of studded and black items as on par with French brands. Everything is 75% off but there are no prices on the tag. You have to ask at the register for the price.
When I came to preview the space was empty. I was the only non-employee there! When I left a few other patrons trickled in. I was told there is back stock but they don't know of which styles. I would wait for markdowns unless you find something you really love and don't think it will be there when the markdowns arrive.
