Nearly everything that will be on sale has already hit the markdown racks. The only holdout, until now, is Dior. Starting Thursday, most of our area stores will have reductions of 40% off on various Dior items. Dior boutiques are providing discounts of 50% off.
Most of the Dior sale selection is limited to shoes, some clothing and a scattering of miscellaneous accessories. Licensed departments (like the handbag departments in Bergdorfs, Bloomingdales, and Saks) don’t have any sale merchandise.
In anticipation of the big markdown, we headed to various stores to see exactly what will be included in the markdown. You can click here to see pictures. Some standout items include colorful canvas sneakers that will come to about $600 from $1000, toile print slingback pumps that come to about $600 from $990, pool sides are $534 from $890, and espadrilles with ankle laces are $414 from $690. (We have pictures here.)
If you are able to make it to a Dior boutique you might even be able to save more. A scattering of hoes clothing and accessories are reduced by 50%. Be sure not to miss the sunglasses because they are plentiful and — who can’t use an extra pair of sunglasses for summer. Pictures from inside the Soho boutique are a click away.
Another great resource for discounted Dior is Shop375. They have a variety of classic J’adore slingbacks, Diorama bags, and even great clothing items from the Dior x Kaws collaboration. Discounts range from 20% to 50% off retail — depending on the item. You can even use the code SHOP10 for an additiunal 10% off.
Department stores are a little skittish about releasing in the sale information on Dior. We have a few in-store sales associates you can contact. The Dior markdown officially starts on May 13.
