The Net-A-Porter sale went live early Thursday morning. Usually, this markdown isn’t worth much excitement but the online luxury site is a little more aggressive with its markdowns than in past years.
NAP usually starts a fake-break early markdown and then, moments later starts a real sale by adding the big designers and lowering prices. This season, this first cut much better than past seasons but there is still more to come.
The markdown is up to 50% off and most items fall in the 30% to 40% category. The 50% reductions usually consist of heavy inventory levels or leftovers from a prior season. This Balenciaga top is older and a little awkward but reduced 50% off and this Bolide-style bag is still $1500 from $2150. I was surprised to find this Valentino V-Lock bag for 50% off or $1180 from $2375.
Some goodies that I have socked away in my cart include these Balenciaga square-toe BB mules but they aren’t on markdown yet. I did spot a YSL small camera bag that’s 40% off and comes to $690 from $1150 and this Givenchy GV3 is a good deal at 50% off or about $1300 from $2600.
This Rick Owens blazer is discounted but not enough. Belts are the accessory of the season and I like the subtly of this YSL style. The Peter Do hi-lo pleated skirt is insanity. I finally grabbed this Isabel Marant sweater that is $700 from $1000. (I’m holding off on the sweater dress even if it’s 40% off!)
The shoe section is a lot of sneakers and summer sandals, which were more highly reduced three months ago. There are some good options among the Gianvito Rossi selection. Among the more exclusive designers, there is a wide selection of Fendi options. These PVC flats are $390 from $650.
