Monclers are hitting the sale racks and Bloomingdales was our latest haunt. Right now, select coats and jackets are discounted 40%.
Among the sale items we found a down vest-peacoat combination for $1597 from $2130, this puffer with fur is $1770 from $2360 and this short jacket comes to $888 from $1480. This two-piece wool coat with a puffer vest that comes in both grey and camel is $1571 from $2095.
Not far from the Moncler assortment we found an entire alcove of designer merchandise that’s reduced to almost 85%. An Etro coat was about $3000 and is currently reduced to $895. A long Sonia Rykiel coat with leopard collar and trim is about the same price. The assortment also contains a lot of Victoria Beckham, J. Mendel, Moschino and Lela Rose. A violet top with ruffles comes to about $150 from $500 and a print dress is $300 from $995. A powder blue Narciso Rodriguez dress is $530 from $1800 and a J. Mendel pleated dress is $500 from about $1500. You can see pictures of lots of sale items here.
While on the designer floor we figured we would check in and see if there was a second markdown on Chanel items. The bad news is that all the clothing is still only 40% off. The funny news is that all the winter items are stuffed in a fitting room in the back of the Chanel section. The sales person admitted that Chanel doesn’t want sale merchandise on the sales floor. So, a crowded fitting room is better? (We have pictures here, in the jump.)
We also checked out the second floor contemporary designers but suggest that shoppers wait for the next big Bloomies promo. Most merchandise isn’t currently discounted much more than 50%. We’ll keep you updated if anything is to change. We know it will.
