The Wandering Collective Sample Sale - Barcelona.

Sunday, June 15, 2014

I am not much of a bargain hunter but I loooove a good sample sale! There is something luxurious, exclusive and precious about shopping designer samples and hearing the inspirational story behind the collection while sipping a glass of bubbly and eating macaroons.

Last week on Thursday in my  Trendcy fashion buyer capacity I helped organize  The Wandering Collective sample sale here in Barcelona. We ran three day sample sale with pieces from their last two seasons collections in gorgeous antique art-deco furniture gallery  Fins de Siecles with a help of ladies who organize personalized shopping and site seeing tours in Barcelona -  Antiques & Boutiques.

Beautiful art-deco gallery venue went together perfectly with The Wandering's collective vintage inspired shoe, clothing and jewelry collections. At the opening night there was a bartender in a smart suite making fabulous Hennessy gin & tonic while VIP guests were chatting and shopping beautiful and unique The Wandering Collective pieces with a sound of real vinyl records playing on a vintage record player.

The Wandering Collective designers wanted to stay unique but also to be a part of the larger project, so three designers from all over the Europe (Milan, Brussels and London) came together to present a united vision that still stays true to their personalities. Three individually designed brands with a common theme presented as a collective, sold as either a total look or independently.

Of course, I couldn't help but to browse, try out and buy some of The Wandering Collective fab pieces myself ;) I got Gianluca Soldi's snake skin high heel sandals and   Valentina Brugnatelli's large Abigail ring, which I like to call by Beyonce ring :)

Gianluca's dad designed these amazing chunky wooden bracelets, which I played with and tried to channel Beatrice Brandini. 

David Whyatt presented samples from his last two collections, beautiful floaty silk pieces for which he also designed gorgeous prints inspired by details from architecture he captured during his research trip at Brussels. 

At the sample sale opening VIP event I was wearing David's gorgeous floaty maxi silk dress which I also wore at their Fashion Week Zagreb show below.
