If you're looking to give your S.O. (or yourself!) something sexy to unwrap this holiday, expect to make a stop in Santa Monica next week. For the first time in LA, luxe lingerie label La Perla and fine bedding brand Frette are joining forces for a dreamy four-day sample sale.
Happening at Lincoln Creative Studios next Wednesday and Thursday (10am to 7pm), Friday (10am to 6pm), and Saturday (10am to 4pm), expect to score up to 60% off sexy underpinnings, swimwear, and bedroom linens. Expect merch similar to what was found at NYC's recent sale, but at much deeper discounts: we're told bras are going for $40 to $65, bottoms and garters will be $25 to $50, sleepwear (gowns, chemises, and more) will be $50 to $105, basics (tops, bottoms, bodysuits, and bustiers) will be $15 to $50, and swimwear and coverups will be priced from $35 to $90.
As far as bedding, shams will be $29, coverlets will be $199, and queen duvets will be $239, to name a few. Note that large handbags and outerwear aren't allowed inside and only street parking will be available; however, we noticed at the location's previous events that earlybirds can score in the alley in front of the sale entrance.
