This week, the Simon Showroom in the Flatiron is hosting a three-day sample sale that brings together a mix of labels, including Wren, C&C California, Citizens of Humanity, Iro, Falls and more… I popped in Thursday night to check out the merchandise and to give you a preview on what’s on offer.Â On hand were the two designers for Falls (Philip Leeming and Leong Ong) who were generous enough to show me some of their pieces.Â A selection of fabulous frocks from the transitional spring 2009 collection is on offer at this sale.Â The items are going for a steal:Â $35 to $60 for the short and long flowy silk dresses; tops at $30, skirts are $20, silk tanks are $15 and some sample pieces from previous collections are ranging in price from $20 to $50, including cashmere sweaters.Â The designers’ dressesÂ (Leong created all the artwork for the prints) are very feminine and chic. Their tops are gorgeously detailed.
Also available are clothing from L.A.-based label Wren: dresses are tagged at $100; coats & jackets at $200; tops $40; skirts $75, tees $25 and more.Â All denim from Citizens of Humanity and Goldsign are $65 (mostly size 27s are available).Â As for merchandise from C & C California, long-sleeved tees are $25, short-sleeved $20, tanks $15, dresses are starting at $35 and knits are $50. You’ll also find garments from French label, Iro, which gives a bohemian twist to its casual clothing.Â I spotted a leather jacket for $160 and a wool long-sleeved cardigan for $60.
Thanks to Linda Peluso, Ops Manager for the Simon Showroom for allowing us to shoot video, plus Philip and Leong for giving us a closer look at their lovely designs.
