Label-loving LA bargain hunters are well aware of A List Sample Sale, the roaming designer overstock shop that's been a not-very-well-kept secret at Racked since our early days. Deal-obsessed shoppers can finally stop stalking founder Caroline Bray's traveling sales, as A List is finally setting up permanent shop next month.
Located at A List's most recent pop-up spot in Mid-City at La Cienega Boulevard south of Olympic, the 1,000-square-foot boutique (suite #207) will continue offering up to 70% off a revolving inventory of past-season and gently-used luxe labels. Expect to find apparel, footwear, handbags, and accessories from a host of high-end European fashion houses and cult-fave labels; think names like Chanel, Lanvin, Miu Miu, Louboutin, Prada, Rick Owens, Balmain, Givenchy, and many, many others. (Bonus: there'll be ample parking, too.) We're told the store is expected to open the first week of January once renovations are complete; stay tuned for more.
