August is every fashion lover’s favorite time of year. All the new collections, patterns, trends and textiles can make you weak in the knees. All the spending can make your wallet ache too.
Fear no more. Luxury 9, midtown’s newest discount store has a full assortment of this season’s hottest items that are discounted 30% to 50% off retail. Unlike other discount stores, Luxury 9 has plenty of merchandise that just came into stores this month.
We were amazed to find classic Chanel ballet flats that are priced at just $550. They usually range in price from $695 to $950. The store also carries this season’s Chloe Faye bag with rainbow patchwork that’s reduced to $1840 from $2450 and this Valentino Rockstud zip clutch is $980 from $1395. Our favorite is the Gucci Dionysus Sequin-Embroidered bag that’s $3040 from $3800. (Click here to see pictures from inside the store.)
Be sure to check out the assortment of Chanel bags and men’s ties. It might not be this season’s collection but it’s hard to find discounts on such classic items. Speaking of classic, there are also lots of Celine classics priced at 30% off and a large shipment of new Giuseppe Zanotti shoes priced at 60% off retail.
This store has so much merchandise that you might want block out time so that you can fully appreciate the breadth of fashion that’s available. Also, don’t be shy to ask for a better price. You might get lucky on some items.
Luxury 9 accepts phone orders and will ship purchases. They will even schedule personal shopping services if you need help finding your way through the designer emporium. All we can say is– good luck!
