There have a been a lot of early sales this season but there haven’t been many designers included in the discounted assortment. Saks Fifth Avenue is making an early push to attract customers with a ‘Sneak Peek’ sale, which offers customers up to 40% off many designer shoes, bags and clothing.
Among the notable inclusions are various pieces of Valentino, Manolo Blahnik, Chloe, Ferragamo and more. We were actually very impressed by the online selection and our curiosity drove us down to the flagship. (We have lots of pictures from the store posted in the jump.)
Unless you’re looking for a discounted Valentino bag, you will probably be better off saving the Uber ride and shopping from the online store. Manolo Hangisi heels are available for 30% off or $700 from $1000. Online they are available in green and at the store, we spotted them in a rose color. We also found these floral slingbacks for $280 from $700. Valentino Rockstud cage pumps are $430 from $1075, Nicholas Kirkwood pearl sandals are $556 from $800 and Aquazzura mules are $600 from $850.
The designer collections included in the early markdown are limited but we were surprised to see Brandon Maxwell, Jacquemus and Attico. This Jacquemus blazer is $670 from $800, an MSGM mini-dress is $230 from $580, and this silk floral print dress from Banjanan is $230 from $385.
This early season sale only runs through Sunday. The real markdowns of all designer merchandise will take place later this month.
