The Eugenia Kim sample sale kicked off today, just in time for the weather starting to match the date on the calendar. We stopped by the beautiful, sunny showroom at 347 West 36th Street and were delighted by the selection of hats, scarves, and shoes on offer this time around. Prices are as marked and vary by style.
The sale begins with headbands on shelves along the left-hand wall. These all appeared to be $25, and there are tons of different colors and prints. We particularly liked a suede style that is available in tan, burnt orange, and dark green.
Past the headbands, you'll find beanies and every kind of fedora imaginable. Fedoras were priced from about $35 to $155, depending on the style. The less expensive styles are closer to the door in bins and on shelves along the walls. We liked a black wide-brim acid washed style for $75, and a black style with a gold painted band for $155 that's also available in tan.
In beanies, we saw prices ranging between $95 and $135. We liked the knit styles with folded brims and large pom-poms on the top, available in lots of colorways. There are also knit headbands ($55) and plain knit beanies ($65). We also saw a few berets ($65), and the well-known whimsical hat with the cat ears in gray ($95).
Genie by Eugenia Kim scarves, hats, headbands, and gloves are on shelves closest to the shoes. Most of the knit items are priced at $35, with headbands going for $15 and fedoras around $45. We liked a plush gray and white fringed blanket scarf ($35), and a faux shearling lined trapper hat ($35).
There are a few fur items on a shelf on the right-hand side of the space. Scarves are $165, headbands are $75, and beanies are $135. We especially liked a black scarf with a blue stripe up the middle.
Shoes are in the back of the room, and you'll find heels for $145, flats for $95, and boots for $295. There are tons of sizes in all styles, like black ankle boots with a gold-tone harness strap studded with pearls ($295), and black loafers with a gold panel at the toe ($95).
All styles are well-stocked, and the sales staff is very helpful with finding a flattering hat silhouette. The sale runs through
Friday at 7pm Saturday at 5pm; check out the Dealfeed below for more details.
