Barneys started their second markdown today online and in stores. Most sale merchandise is now 60% off. There is still a wide assortment of fall/winter shoes, bags and ready-to-wear. Another markdown will come after the holidays but much of the stuff you want will be gone by then.
The Barneys markdown is great because it includes an impressive assortment of shoes and bags. This Anya Hindmarsh clutch is $579 from $1450 and makes a great gift. A minimalistic Valextra tote that fits a laptop is $1800 from $3400 and a Valentino Rockstud saddle bag is $1700 from $4300. Among the shoes are Gianvitto Rossi classic black knee-high boots that are $580 from $1460, Chloe lace-up boots are $560 from $1400, Valentino lace-up flats are $360 from $900 and Prada platform pumps are $380 from $950.
If you’re in the store and looking for discount bags, head to the right as you walk into the store. At this point in the sale season you can usually find a variety of Balenciaga, Chloe and Givenchy bags.
We suggest you don’t procrastinate before buying holiday gifts. This will be the last markdown before the holidays. The third, and final markdown, doesn’t usually occur until mid-January. Just remember to not blow your whole shopping budget. You’re going to want to leave some money to grab something nice for yourself when the markdowns hit 75% off.
