Your boudoir won't have to wait until Valentine's Day to score a sexy upgrade, because the La Perla and and Frette sample sale will handle that sitch. The luxury lingerie label and high-end bedding brand's first-ever LA blowout kicked off at 10am in Santa Monica today, and we suggest you start planning your extended lunch break ASAP.
The sale was originally expected to stock La Perla's Studio and Basics lines (which would have been priced from $15 for bottoms to $75 for sleepwear), we're told the wallet-friendly pieces won't be in the mix after all. You're still looking at a full set of underpinnings for about $105—not bad, considering one bra is usually four times that price.
Speaking of which, A-cup babes will want to hit up the sale sooner rather than later: there's just one bin of options; there's more to choose from for the B-cup and up ladies. As far as the rest of La Perla's pricing, expect bras for $65, undies for $40, bustiers and bodysuits for $75, and sleepwear (gowns, pajamas, chemises, and more) for $105. Swimwear is $75 for one-pieces, $70 for bikini tops and bottoms, and $90 for cover-ups.
Over in the bedding section, you'll find Frette's bath linens for $10 to $40 (no wash cloths, but there'll be bath and hand towels, sheets, and mats), pillowcases and shams for $10 to $29, pillows for $39, accessories (mattress toppers, duvet fillers, and pillows) for $99, queen duvets for $239, queen sheet sets for $249, and California king sheet sets for $259.
We're told that Frette merch will be replenished on Friday, but La Perla won't be getting any new shipments in, sadly (head over stat for the best selection). It's also worth nothing that there are no changing rooms and no purses are allowed, so bring your essentials and know your size and measurements.
Scroll through the gallery above for a peek at the goods, and swing by today until 7pm, tomorrow from 10am to 7pm, Friday from 10am to 6pm, and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
