If you missed the Proenza Schouler sample sale at C21 Edition last month, all is not lost. Madison Avenue Spy discovered that the brand is getting into the holiday spirit by offering shoppers 50% off retail prices on clothing, shoes, and handbags right now.
The discount isn't quite as good as a sample sale, but the selection is much better. The shopping blog found the Madison Avenue boutique stocked with medium PS1 handbags in a variety of colors — gold, berry, aqua, mustard, burgundy, and red — plus prints and exotic skins priced from $890 to $1,780. There were also mini PS11 handbags in metallic pink, gold, and rose gold at the same discount.
The sale also extends to the brand's website where, in addition the bags, we found ankle boots ($497), peep toe mules ($397), espadrilles ($247.50), an A-line dress ($645), wide-leg pants ($637), and a double-breasted coat ($1,095) among the best of the selection.
