Club21 Clearance Sale @ Menara Hap Seng 2 (22-26 August 2015)

The Club21 clearance sale made a surprising return on Saturday.  The last clearance sale was held in February.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Karlie clutch, 70% off, original price MYR1190
Since the sale will end tomorrow, I will quickly cover what I saw at the sale and probably add on to this post later.  Please note that what I saw might have changed significantly over the sale period.  If you have any queries, you can try to ask the Club21 staff via their Instagram or Facebook page.  So far, they seem quite helpful in answering questions.

This is one of my purchases, a Marc by Marc Jacobs tri-fold wallet in taupe.  I found it beneath other Marc by Marc Jacobs things but I was told it was the last one.

Discounts were only up to 80% as at time of writing.  I am unsure if there will be further reductions on the last day but even if they are, you can expect an extra 10% at most.  This is based on my past experiences with this sale.

I saw no shoes when I went on the first day of the sale.

Queues were relatively short, even on the first day.  Unlike the sale in February, when I queued for 1.5 hours just to pay.

There were no Lanvin clothes for women, only a handful of handbags and maybe 2 belts.  There were about 2 racks of Lanvin for men.

No Paul Smith stuff spotted.

Plenty of DKNY handbags and long wallets.  Quite a lot of choice of designs and none look particularly weird.

A few Mulberry bags (you can see them on Club21 Malaysia's Instagram page).

Some Marc by Marc Jacobs bags, wallets, clutches, phone covers, tablet covers etc.  Leather ones were mostly gone on the first day.

Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs clothes for women were still expensive and there weren't a lot of choices.

3.1 Philip Lim clothes for women were really beautiful and discounted at 80% off.

Alexander McQueen skull rings and bracelets were available on the first day.  Don't know if they still are.

Most of the clothes (both men and women) were from DKNY and Armani Exchange and at 70% and 80% off.

No CK Calvin Klein at all.

No Emporio Armani or Giorgio Armani.  I assume these will go straight to the Armani Outlet at Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) since I haven't seen them at Club21 clearance sales since JPO opened.

Nothing marked at flat prices (also since JPO opened).

Maybe 3 Jennifer Behr headbands.

There was 1 Prouenza Schouler satchel (I'm guessing it's the PS1 but I haven't checked) in highlighter yellow that was 80% off, original price about MYR8000.

Clothes from the following womenswear designers were available (in addition to those already mentioned above), albeit in limited designs, quantities and sizes:
  • Stella McCartney
  • Mulberry
  • Alexander McQueen
  • T by Alexander Wang
  • Acne Studios
  • Marni
  • Carven
  • Antonio Berardi
  • Twistys
  • Commes Des Garcons Tricot
  • Cedric Charlier
For those still hoping to catch the sale, it ends tomorrow at 6pm.  Happy shopping!

Edit:  Some more pictures added below.

The venue wasn't overly crowded this time around.  And the air-conditioning didn't break down like it did in February.  There were no fitting rooms and only a few mirrors around the venue.  Parking on weekends was MYR4 per entry but parking rates on weekdays were expensive (something like MYR3 or MYR4 per hour).  

Sizes available for premier designers (i.e. not Armani Exchange or DKNY) ran rather small.  Most of the clothes were quite avant garde.  Definitely not for wallflowers.  

I think the best buys at the sale were the DKNY and Marc by Marc Jacobs leather goods.  Some of my shopping companion's purchases are as follows:  
DKNY black leather quilted mini handbag, 70% off, original price MYR790
DKNY black leather quilted long wallet, 70% off, original price MYR530
Marc by Marc Jacobs blue "Ligero" leather satchel, 70% off, original price MYR1790
I suppose there will be no more Club21 clearance sales this year.  I'll see you again next year, Club21!
