Winter 2015-2016 Lucky Pack Round Up!

Luckypack reservations have started super early this year, and a few of these have already sold out online, unfortunately! I’m going to include them anyway, just so people aren’t looking for them.

Lucky Packs, or “Fukubukuro” (sometimes called “Lucky Bags”, “Happy Bags”, “Happy Packs”, “Happy Sets” or sometimes “Special Sets”) are blind bags of clearance merchandise that you can buy from Japanese stores at the end of the year. It’s believed that keeping old things into the new year is bad luck, so to get rid of all of last year’s clearance that didn’t sell in winter clearance sales, shops will put it in these blind bags and then sell them at a huge discount. It’s a great way to get a lot of brand new stuff for very cheap… as long as you like and fit into pretty much everything a brand makes. Be aware though; you will not get the best selling, most perfect item from the brand of your dreams. If they had a dud item this season, chances are that’s what you are going to get.

It’s become a little like “black friday” in the United States where some stores that don’t have great things to put on sale (maybe they just don’t have a lot of clearance) will often stock a limited number of a specific item just for these sales. In these cases, they usually call them “Special Sets”, instead of “Lucky Packs”. These bags can contain either all items that were made just for these sets, or a mix of special items and clearance. Baby the Stars Shine Bright and Angelic Pretty both design new prints for their new years special sets. While Metamorphose is known to use leftover material to make skirts and dresses in simple patterns.

The list is getting super long, so I’m updating with a quick-jump list. Brands in the quick jump list which do NOT have links, have not yet posted their lucky pack info!

Non-woven fabric tote 40 * 50 * 15cm + Lucky pack includes 5-6 pieces including tops, bottoms, JSK, accessories, etc. Retail value around 62,000 yen. (This is not as good of a discount as Innocent World’s own lucky packs)

Available Now!

Innocent World Lucky Pack New Year Happy Set A Innocent World Lucky Pack New Year Happy Set A

Available in S-M, M and L sizes. This is a special box contains a “random” assortment (probably won’t all match) of clearance merchandise. Each pack appears to have approximately 2 main pieces based on the sample image, but you could get more or less. Every pack typically has at least one dress, one blouse and one pair of socks though. Items tend to be 70%-80% off in these packs, so you can guestimate that you will get about 100,000 yen worth of Innocent World items. It’s a pretty good deal if you fit standard sizing.

No sizing options; you get what you get. This is a special box contains a “random” assortment (probably won’t all match) of clearance merchandise. Each pack appears to have approximately 6 main pieces based on the sample image, but you could get more or less. Every pack typically has at least one dress, one blouse and one pair of socks though. Items tend to be 70%-80% off in these packs, so you can guestimate that you will get about 265,000 yen worth of Innocent World items. It’s a pretty good deal if you fit standard sizing.

Mixed into these packs are also two re-release dresses: Strawberry Field Animals and Bertille Rose.

Strawberry Field Animals Lucky Pack Bertille Rose Lucky Pack

Based on the math from last year, if you get one of these dresses, IW is basically “charging” retail price for them, so you will get less clearance stuff in your pack. Only one colorway is shown for each of them, though there were two colorways of one of the prints last year, so there may be multiple colorways. This will be the only way to get these specific versions of these dresses. If the cuts follow last year’s pattern, the Strawberry Field Animals underbust JSK will not have shirring.
