The Brooklyn boutique’s semi-annual sample sale goes through this Sunday, July 12th. The offerings include a slew of labels for both men and women.
Upon entering French Garment Cleaners, you’ll need to check in your bag. Men’s goods are in the front of the store and the women’s merchandise (clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry) covers the rest of the floor.
Starting with women’s clothing, I spotted pieces from a long list of labels, including KENZO (tops, tees, dresses, etc), Apiece Apart, Christian Wignets, Christoper Lemair, Isabel Marant, M. Patmos, Rachel Comey, Ulla Johnson, Won Hundred and more. There appeared to be current spring/summer items as well as past season goods and actual samples which include lots of knits/sweaters from M. Patmos mixed throughout the racks starting at $40.
Everything is priced as marked. Highlights include a spaghetti strap black cotton Isabel Marant dress for $100 and summery geometric Apiece Apart dress for $109 (orig. $525). Christian Wignets dress for $305 (orig. $609), Rachel Comey black/white lace jacket for $100 (orig. $495), SEA leopard print shorts for $50 (orig. $270). Jeans hovered over $100 with Isabel Marant Etoile at $120 (orig. $275) and a pair of Won Hundred at $130 (orig. $265).
Onto shoes, sandals and boots which were displayed on shelves along the store. There were random styles and limited sizing, many priced at under $100. In one corner, there was a pile of Ariana Bowling leather flip-flops $35. There were various styles of handbags and clutches with pricing from $50 for small bags such as a Kenzo clutch to under $200 for medium ones such as bags from WANT Les Essentials de la Vie.
There’s a dressing area in the back of the store if you need to try things on. The sale is in-store only.
