SABA Collins Street VIP Night

A few Fridays ago, SABA had a Christmas VIP Night at their flagship store on Collins Street. I was lucky enough to attend and be spoiled rotten!

Shoppers were invited to indulge in some champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries as they browsed the summer range, and the first 50 people in the door were treated to a showbag. The showbag was great – it had a scarf that I’d had my eye on for quite some time (the Nile Scarf in Ultramarine, RRP $69), as well as deluxe samples of Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer and Kora Hand Balm and a full-size SABA-branded lip balm.

In addition to all this, SABA offered 35% off storewide. After reading this article on the quality of SABA’s black pants in comparison to other brands, I decided that I would purchase the Viva Suit Pant, but unfortunately they didn’t have my size. To the staff’s credit, and despite the growing crowd, they helped me locate a pair at Melbourne Central. Great service!

I didn’t hang around too long because it was so hot and stuffy – the new store layout is much nicer to look at but is unfortunately a lot smaller so there wasn’t much room to move. I picked up the Basic Slub Print T-shirt which is part of the SABA Denim range. I wish SABA would make more basic t-shirts, this one was great quality and fit really nicely. I’m planning on wearing it on Christmas Day with some denim shorts.
