It seems as if sale season just started but retailers aren’t wasting any time. Both Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman started their second round of markdowns today. The discounts at both stores top 60% off.
We started the day at Barneys and went directly to the shoe department where we found all discounted shoes reduced 60%. Christian Louboutin only hit the sales racks last week but they still got the extra markdowns. (You can see pictures from our shopping trip right here.)
Some of the most poplular styles include these Aquazzura flats in solid black, Dries Van Noten with interesting heels and Fendi face loafers. Take note, the online assortment is even better than what we saw in the store. The only difference is that we couldn’t find any reduced Louboutin shoes online.
Downstairs, in the Prada section, we found lots of great pieces. That pink lips skirt, we have been coveting all season, is now reduced 60%,along with this printed silk dress. You can see pictures of the Prada sale selection right here. The Off-White selection is disappearing fast. Online you can still find a size range of the stripped jeans and roses styles.
Most of the bags are now reduced 40%. We spotted several Fendi styles, Balenciaga, JW Anderson Pierce bags and lots of Alaia. We can’t say anything in particular was too noteworthy. Again, the options are more plentiful online.
Over at Bergdorf Goodman, the shoe selection is better but the discount isn’t as high. The markdown is just 50% on the second floor. Highlights include a selection of Manolo Hangs pumps, Nicholas Kirkwood Beya loafers, Fendi mules and Miu Miu slides and Balenciaga printed satin booties.
Upstairs we spotted this Delpozo coat that’s now about $1000 from $2600 and this dramatic top/cape/blouse/fabulousness is $880 from $2150. Equal in style and markdown is this Rossie Assouline one-shoulder top that’s $900 from $1500. A Mary Katrantzou optical print dress is $800 from $2000.
Among the bags are still lots of Balenciaga, Tom Ford, Fendi, overpriced Valentino, Anya Hindmarch and Libertine. Most are reduced 50% now.
Between now and the end of the season there are flashes of additional discounts at Bergdorf Goodman. There will be a third markdown at both stores but that won’t happen until July. Don’t worry, it’s not as far away as you think. The days always seem to fly by during Summer.
