Tonight the Bandier sample sale opened to press and other insiders. The selection includes a large verity of athleisure clothing, workout wear, outerwear, sportswear, sneakers and accessories. The selection is as amazing as you would expect from Bandier but the prices are still a bit of a stretch.
Bottoms, which consist mostly of leggings, are priced in tiers. Most of the most covetable leggings are either $69 or $99, which doesn't really seem like a great bargain. Ultracore Miami print leggings are $99 from $185. That's less than 50% off. They are currently only $39 more on the Bandier website and an additional promotion would make the price equal. We also spotted these Koral high rise leggings that are $99 from $158. They are currently only $20 more on the website. This palm print sports bra from Ultracore is $69 from $97, or the same exact price as it is online. (You can see lots of pictures in the jump.)
black and silver Stella McCartney sneakers for about $75 from $122, APL sneakers with silver and blue are $60 from $150 and Les (Art)ists slip-on sneakers are $112 from $278.
In the back there is a quiet area with a few racks of outerwear. Everything there is a straight 50% off. Among the selection is an bomber jacket from Upside that's $125 from $256. It's still full price here. A long cardigan from Monrow is $185 from $370 and a Prabal Gurung moto jacket in a scuba fabric is $150 from $295.
The sale preview drew a nice crowed and we are pretty sure there will be a wait to get into the sale tomorrow. Most shoppers didn't leave with large hauls but there was still a line that wrapped around the store to check out. We expect that it could be worse tomorrow. We suggest waiting this sale out or just shopping around online. We have lots of pictures of what we found in the jump and have also linked to items priced similarly at other retailers (like Bloomingdales😬).
