SSENSE is one of my favorite online retailers to shop for contemporary, functional, innovative designers’ clothing and accessories. I love going through their list of designers because of a mix of luxury, streetwear, and avant-garde labels. The way the website is built, the styling, and clothing selection make the whole shopping experience quite addicting.
SSENSE does seasonal sales that typically last months, and I believe it’s twice a year: Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter. The best way to know when the sale starts is to sign up for their email and the Spring-Summer 2020 Sale started the morning of May 11th EST. This blog post goes live on June 10, and the sale is still going on.
To my experience, more sale pieces are dropped as time goes by. If there’s something I’ve been eyeing from popular designers that I know never or rarely go on sale, I’d buy right away since sale stuff is sold out quickly. My style is quite minimal, so I usually shop designers on sale to ‘upgrade’ my basics from brands I already know and love.
SSENSE, pronounced [es-uhns], is an e-commerce luxury fashion retailer based in Montreal, Canada. It was founded by three brothers: Rami, Firas, and Bassel Atallah in 2003.
Over a decade of building this platform from scratch, SSENSE is becoming a ‘cultural protagonist’ on its own right, serving over 150 countries and operating in three languages: English, French, and Japanese. Learn more about their commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, here.
SSENSE adheres to strict no-paper policy, so all items are shipped inside a box with very minimal packaging. You can contact customer service or log into your SSENSE account about defects or start a return.
Here are my Spring-Summer 2020 Sale picks and items I own, purchased from previous SSENSE Sales! Let me know if you need help with sizing and fit. Comment below to DM me.
2. Matteau Purple Tri Crop Top Petite Brief Bikini: Matteau is one of my favorite Australian-made swimwear brands. Their pieces are so elegantly designed and well-made. Definitely worth the investment.
3. Totême Black Novara Trousers: Totême is a Scandi-brand that I love for elevated basic pieces. These trousers might not be on sale at the time you’re browsing, but they have been and will be back on sale. I got them on sale on the last day of their Fall-Winter sale in January of this year.
4. Totême Black Sondrio One-Piece Swimsuit: I bought this one-piece swimsuit in brown last summer, and it’s been with me on every vacation since.
5. Totême White Noma Shirt: The asymmetrical button front is what makes this shirt unique. I got it in size M for a relaxed fit.
There are a lot of items in my cart, unfortunately, really good pieces are sold out already. I am going to wait until their last sale announcement to buy a few things, but for now, I just keep an eye on them. Hope you will be able to pick up something from a designer you like. Thanks for reading and take care!
