It’s only the first Monday in May, otherwise known as MetGala Day, but Barneys isn’t going to let BagGirlRiri, Anna, Donatella or the Pope steal the fashion show. Today, Barneys started a mini seasonal online presale. The discount is 40% off select merchandise.
Presales are akin to the “quiet period” before a company goes public. You can’t actually buy the merchandise in the store but you can have your broker, oh sorry — sales person, hold your preferred items until the sale officially begins.
Take note, this isn’t the true first markdown but there is still an interesting selection from which to browse. Over this way, we found Loeffier Randell ruffled slides for $229 from $375, Rag & Bone denim platform slides are $199 from $325 and Mari Giudicelli suede sandals are $319 from $535.
Among the clothing, we found a bomber jacket from Ben Taverniti Unravel Project for $800 from $1339, a Victoria Beckham dress with sexy cut-outs is $1500 from $2520 and an adorable Zimmerman stripped dress with ruffles is $480 from $800. This white Jourden drop waist dress is perfect for Summer and priced pretty perfectly too at just $399 from $500.
We realize this isn’t the real first presale or markdown but it’s always exciting to see a sale section. The first markdown presale usually starts around the May 17th. You can click over this way to see all the information about presale at Barneys last Spring.
