We love Jen Kao, her architectural lines, fluid jerseys and edgy pieces made us super excited for her sample sale. Her sale was a definite experience. It was in a huge open space with lots of natural light, it felt more like I was in a showroom of archival quality pieces than a sample sale. Perhaps because we were the only people save for a very kind girl attending the desk and a rather bored looking security guard. It didn’t feel like a sample sale but rather a boutique space.
Prices however were unfortunately purchase inhibitive. There were about 10 racks of clothing and several table set up showcasing footwear, jewelry and lookbooks.
Sheer jersey tees and tanks were about $90. The cheapest item I saw was a stiff ponte tank for $70 and a signature print tee for $70, there were only one each. There were also some bikini’s in signature print for $135…and the prices just go up from there. Featherweight soft airy sweaters were around $271-320. Dresses about $350-475. Leather Biker jackets for $750. The most expensive pieces were the multi color/brass sequin side legging for $650 and the multi color sequin center dress for $1200.
Jen Kao, maybe one day…
