The Anine Bing sample sale preview evening on 11 April was a treat for any fashionista. Having coveted her checked blazers and patent boots I was excited to see what the sample sale would offer.
Based in The Box, close to outlet heaven in Hackney, the Anine Bing sample sale was more like a well presented upmarket shop than your usual messy, overloaded sample sale. It was clean, airy and relaxed which is a pleasant change!
Shoes and bags were neatly arranged at the front, in size order. These ranged from £110 for ballet pumps to £252 for boots, including the popular Charlie stud boots in black and brown, an off duty favourite of mine.
There were 2 bags available, a leather embroidered bag and a very useful large tote, which were £286 and £186 respectively.
The clothes were a good mix of luxury basics- great fitting t shirts, lace shirts, frilled jumpers, ripped grey jeans, leather skirts, and beautifully cut strappy summer dresses. All made in the softest cotton, silk, wool or leather with great subtle details. These pieces will fit seamlessly into your wardrobe. The standout piece for me was the cropped black wool biker jacket, fantastic for every day wear.
Prices ranged from £28 for underwear, to £125 for jackets which is a brilliant saving.
There are several dressing rooms too, and I could see quite a few Anine Bing fans wearing her blazers and boots heading towards them with armfuls of the underwear, jeans and dresses.
The staff there were helpful and there’s plenty of stock for most items in the back, so if there’s a size you can’t see then ask just in case.
And as for me? I didn’t buy the biker jacket, but I may go back for it. Race you there..!
