The concept of PrivateSales.hk is pretty simple. Flash sales start at noon on a pre-announced day and then you have a few days to shop discounted stock. After that it's gone, forever. It's members only, which means you have to sign up to view the merch. Previous sales have featured Gucci and Boss sunnies, Comvita Skincare, Furla, Melvita...and this week, check out La Perla swimwear. Despite the shady product photos, it's actually got a bunch of stuff that's still available on La Perla's own website, at up to 70% off retail.
V sent Damien from PrivateSales.hk my way who offered a little bit of credit to get me started shopping at the sale, and I accepted. Signing up was a breeze and then I was in. The sale actually started a day late due to a site crash but they've upgraded servers and now it's all good. Click, click. Some extra product research with Google images (to acquire different viewpoints and better pictures for the stuff I wanted, one cannot rest on one's laurels when it comes to realistically picturing clothing on a body) and I was done in minutes. Scored this Jean Paul Gaultier for La Perla Sarouel Sarong-type cover-up, which I anticipate will work nicely into my non-beach-time wardrobe also. Also noticed that PrivateSales.hk had it some $200 and change less than what it's selling for on the La Perla website, plus free shipping.
To get you all started shopping, the site is offering you all a code to put $100 of credit towards a purchase during the La Perla event. Just enter HKFG13 to take $100 off whatever you get.
