We love markdown session but when you’re in the market for certain luxury designers a 30% discount may not be enough. That’s when we head to our favorite discount stores. Our recent favorite is an intimate boutique, which just opened right near Grand Central Station.
The Lux Brands store has an astonishing array of top-designer clothing, shoes and accessories. In addition, the prices are mouthwatering. A Lanvin sequined dress is just $495, a stunning Prada print blouse is $149. a Pucci silk tunic is $199 and an amazing Fendi dress is $299. There’s even a great selection for men, including Gucci, Hickey-Freeman and Valentino. It’s never too early to scout out the perfect Father’s Day gift!
Moving onto the accessories, a Bottega Veneta flap wallet is $299 and an exquisite Prada chandelier necklace is $499. The pièce de résistance is a fully beaded Fendi Baguette with a malachite and lizard skin clasp. You might want to grab this particular item because Fendi is celebrating the Baguette’s 15-year anniversary and making a huge push to resurrect the status of the popular style. Finding them discounted may become increasingly difficult.
We are also told that Lux Brands is expecting to get in some insanely priced marquee shoe brands. (We aren’t allowed to name them but bet you can guess.) We suggest scoping out the store for the great clothing now and coming back later for the shoes.
