Sample Sale Report: Timo Weiland

I dropped by the Timo Weiland Sample Sale at BBlessing on my way home tonight. For those of you who aren't familiar with the label, Timo Weiland launched originally in 2009 as a unisex neckwear line, but soon became a full fledged collection for both men and women. The clothing is inspired by the design duo's families, friends, and icons they admire, like historical figures from eighteenth-century France and Steve McQueen. The label has been marked as one to watch by NY Mag so I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before they blow up :)

There was a small selection of merch in the front of the boutique but don't let that fool you as there is a much larger selection available in the back room! Since this is in a lovely boutique with super nice staffers, look forward to real fitting rooms! There wasn't much in terms of other shoppers so it makes for a great relaxed shopping experience.

The sale is neat, organized and reasonably priced. Although not the most affordable sale, the merch is a huge percentage off and looks high quality and very special/designer. The best deals in my opinion are on the knits and the outerwear.


So there was quite a selection of menswear including the double pleat trench (in the first picture) for just $225! Plenty of sharp blazers for $190. These styles are not for wallflowers but could add plenty of sass to the regular guy's wardrobe. I quite like the double knit blazer especially and think it would look great with skinny jeans and a tee! Mens sizing runs from XS-XL but XS is not as common.

Perforated leather jacket $395 (?), Double Knit Blazer $125

Asymmetric Cardigan $90 (?), Pintuck Shorts $75

I really thought that so many of these pieces are polished and modern even though they reference historical details. My particular faves are the loops skirt and loop shoulder dress! I also had my eye on the perforated leather tank that would be perfect for that casual leather tee trend that has stormed the runways thanks to Phoebe Philo/Celine. Women's sizing runs from 0-8.

Regal Trench Coat $205, Antoinette Blouse $150

Loop Skirt 225

Perforated Leather Tank 100, Encasement Skirt 75

Loop Shoulder Dress, Onesie Work Jumper $105

What I love about this site is how it keeps me up to date on what's going on in the industry. Regrettably the sample sales don't help those of us west coasters out much ;-) but everything else, loving it. For example, I'll acknowledge that I first heard about Ben Minkoff here. I in turn gabbed it to every Rebecca Minkoff fan I know. And here, you're putting Timo Weiland on my radar for the first time. Thanks! Again, it's what I love most about this blog.
