Two brands this week are teaming up for a sample sale – one is New York City based online outerwear label, The Arrivals and the other a Paris-based brand, Faith Connexion. The sale is taking place in Soho at 150 Greene Street. We stopped in one afternoon earlier this week when the place was fairly empty, except for the few shoppers. It appeared that the staff outnumbered customers.

The Arrivals offering are mostly winter wool coats and a few spring as well as rain jackets/coats. The items are well constructed classics and made in the USA. Pricing ranges from $100 to $450 for leather coats. Not much of a discount for much of the merchandise after looking at the brand’s website for the original prices. For example:

  • Milo bonded wool bomber is on sale for $350 (orig. $450)
  • Oster bonded wool parka is on sale for $350 (orig. $695)
  • Artemis is now $250 (orig. $385)
  • Kahn city coat now $250 (orig. $395)

As for the French cult label, Faith Connexion (found at Barneys and Net-a-Porter), the merchandise included T-shirts, silk tops/tunics, denim, pants, jackets/coats and more. Signage states items are 75% off retail. Think cool and modern with a rock-and-roll twist. Some of the jackets retail from $1,000-$2,300. Gauze tunics retail at $370 and skinny jeans at $590.

Examples of Faith/Connexion Deals:

  • Leather jackets $680
  • Light weight knit $60

  • Jogging pants $118
  • Silk top $130
