Barneys has been boasting the best markdowns in town on clothing, shoes and handbags. To maintain its competitive edge the store started it’s second markdown today.
At this point in sale season, we tend to prefer shopping online for serious shopping. It’s just too frustrating to go to a store and find that your size is sold out. We found this Alaia tote that comes to $1400 from over $3300. That’s pretty close to 60% off! A Fendi pom-pom style bag is about $1000 from $2150, an Anya Hindmarch bag is $550 from $1345.
The online shoe selection is even better. We are in love with these Alchimia di Ballin high boots that now comes to under $550 from $1300. The heel hight makes them NYC wearable and the architectural detail makes them visually interesting. Ditto goes for these Margiela fold-over boots that are $700 from about $1700. Mules from The Row are about $500 from $1200, which is similar to sample sale pricing! Oh, and these Dries Van Norten velvet boots are my absolute favorites. (Ohhh, yes, I did!)
We don’t know how long this promotion will last but the official second markdown should happen next week. We expend that the next markdown will be 50% off shoe sand 60% off clothing. The difference is marginal.
