For the first time, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman will begin their first markdown on the same day. The official start of sale season for both retailers is Tuesday, but we’ve found that markdowns at Bergdorfs have already been put live online. That means that right now, you can start planning your wardrobe for the first weekend of unofficial Summer.
The discount, at both stores, is up to 40% off. Most clothing is discounted 40% and shoes and bags are reduced 30%. The sale doesn’t officially start until Tuesday but Bergedorfs has some of their sale items live already.
Take note, the first markdown includes Fendi, Prada, Balenciaga, Givenchy and more but you’ll have to wait until early June for Chanel and Louboutin. Everyone in fashion is talking about Givenchy and you can snag an ombré Horizon bag for about $2100 from nearly $3000 and the Infinity Hobo is $1715 from $2450. A hobo bag from The Row is $2300 from $2150. A Valentino Rockstud Spike is $1956 from $2800, the Calvin Klein fringe bag is $1350 from $2250, and a Tom Ford shoulder bag is $1500 from $2400. We stumbled upon this Balenciaga doodle/ graffiti wallet that’s $486 from $700.
Among the reduced shoes is an assortment of Prada. These Jacquard mules are $533 from $870, flats with the new sports strap are $474 from $790, and espadrilles are $342 from $570. Bergdorfs has the best selection of No21 shoes. A Gingham print mule is $434 from $620 and a palm tree print flat is $437 from $625.
Among the clothing, we have our eyes set on this classic floral print from Erdem that’s $570 from $815, this one-shoulder pleated blouse from Rosie Assoulin that’s $960 from $1600 and this mini-skirt from Thierry Mugler that is reduced to $276 from $790.
We highly suggest that online shoppers start their shopping and editing right now. Many items are already discounted online and more will be trickling in over the course of the next day or two. Once news gets out, the best items will be gone very, very, very quickly.
