It’s only the first Monday in May, otherwise known as MetGala Day, but Barneys isn’t going to let BagGirlRiri, Anna, Donatella or any Camp kids steal the fashion show. Today, Barneys started a VIP seasonal online presale. The discount is 40% off select merchandise.
To access the sale section you must use this link and log into your account. Presales are akin to the “quiet period” before a company goes public. Good thing there are no rules about taking advantage of inside shopping information.
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, Loefler Randall gingham slide sandals for $119 from $200, Gianvitto Rossi ankle wrap sandals are $420 from $700, Walter de Silva mesh heels are $540 from $900 and a pair of Golden Goose sneakers are $340 from $565.
Among the clothing, we found a track jacket from Palm Angles for $330 from $550, an Altazzura tie-dye dress is $1100 from $1850 and the sweater is $570 from $950. This classic print Versace silk wrap dress $1770 from $3000.
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 May 16th. You can click over this way to see all the information about presale at Barneys last Spring.
