Ridiculously expensive hotel bedsheets now slightly less ridiculously expensive
Ah, the unmistakable feel of Frette linens: impossibly high thread counts; gloriously soft pillowcases; washcloths fluffed in heaven – the brand has been in (and touching) our faces at luxe hotels everywhere, from the towels at NYC’s Tribeca Grand and the bed linens at The Pierre to the “yummy yummy yummy” sheets at Miami’s Betsy and the white waffled blankets at Casa de Campo in the DR.
If you’re a Frette fan and, like us, you logged onto the Frette website once upon a morning-after and quickly came upon the realization that outfitting your bed in the sweet sheets was financially out of the question ($2,095 for a sheet set), we’ve got a present for you. Hint: it’s a sale.
The LA Times pointed us toward the significant markdowns at the Frette site going on now (though “significantly” marking down an item regularly priced at $850, like the Iconico duvet cover, still asks an eye-popping $340 from you after the discount). If the look of The Betsy’s rooms deeply inspired you, pieces from the Bicolore collection might help you achieve a similar look – shams are marked down to $88 (from $175), and sheet sets are at $498 (down from $995).
Still insanely pricey, yes – but if you really want to get technical, some luxe hotels charge $500-ish rates for a single night of Frette-swaddled bliss, right? There. Justified.
So head over to the sale and have at it. Enjoy your Frette-gasm. And your credit card bill.
