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 over at Bergdorf Goodman today. Markdowns started around noon and still hadn’t made it through the entire store. Bags and shoes are now 50% off and clothing is reduced to 60%. If what you want is already sold out online at Bergdorfs you can keep an eye out for the Neiman Marcus markdown, which will happen on June 11. Actually, the Neiman Marcus markdown will technically be an extra 25% off sale, bringing the total savings to 55% off.
If you have your eye on any Balenciaga bags we wouldn’t spare a moment. There is a variety of City bags in assorted colors, like blue, beige, white and black. Here is one online that’s reduced to $1250 in the store. There are also lots of Bazar bags, here is a polka dot style that’s $825 from $1650 and the NYC shopper is $975 from $1950. We love the laid-back look and unpretentious feel of Hayward bags and this style is $425 from $850. There are some JW Anderson Pierce bags for $850 and a whole lot of Valentino.

Upstairs the shoe discounts were still in limbo but the racks are full of temptation. Pictures of the shoe selection inside the store are over here. Online you can grab these two-tone Neous shoes with a ball heel for $330 from $665, jeweled Miu Miu sandals are $495 from $990 and Saint Laurent block heel sandals are about $400 from $800. You can see pictures of what’s left on sale at Bergdorf Goodman over this way.
Heading uptown to Barneys, you’ll find that the shoe and bag departments aren’t nearly as well stocked at Bergdorf Goodman. On the bright side, the discount is 60% off most shoes and bags. Among the bags, there are a few Balenciaga styles. If you have had your eye on an Alaia bag, now would be the time to pounce. Here is a bucket bag for $640 from $1600 and this drawstring cord bag is $1640 from $4100. The biggest selection is the Calvin Klein collection bags, which are undeniably pretty nice. Some of them happen to be a bit heavy but it’s really an underrated accessories brand.
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.
