The discounts on bags and shoes are holding steady at 60% off but there really isn’t a great selection left. (The assortment at Bergdorfs is better but the discount isn’t as good.) The best assortment are the Chanel shoes, that are now reduced to 50% off. (You can click here to see pictures.) Among the more discounted shoes, we found Alchimia di Ballin high boots for $519 from $1300, Altuzarra print pumps are $339 from $850 and loafers from the Row are $319 from $800.
The bag selection at Barneys is pretty thin. We are finding the simplicity of the Calvin Klein bags increasingly attractive, especially for $800 from $2000. A tote bag from The Row is $719 from almost $1800 and a Proenza Schouler shoulder bag is about $1100 from $2700. (We have pictures of a few other bags we saw on sale over here.)
At this point, the clothing selection holds the best shopping opportunities. A Balenciaga pleated skirt is $350 from $1150, a JW Anderson dress is $260 from $865 and a Balmain mini-dress is $1129 from $3765. The store still has a heathy selection of Prada, which you can see here. The award for the best leather pants of the season goes to Ben Taverniti Unravel Project and they are now $500 from $1700. We also found this Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress that’s reduced 70% and comes to $899 from $3000.
This markdown is pretty awesome but we know that there are likely to be additional discount promotions. Just don’t expect the better merchandise to stick around for too much longer. We can always hope for the treasures found in returns.
