Please note: We just received the following message from Net-A-Porter.
“Due to the current global situation, NET-A-PORTER is temporarily unable to fulfill orders shipping within/to the United States. During this interim period, customers in the US are not able to browse or shop the site. The option to ship to the US while shopping NET-A-PORTER international sites has also been removed.
As a result, NET-A-PORTER has to pause all US activity effective immediately. The most recent solution to shift activity to the UK is currently not an option.“
Earlier this week we were sent a press alert about Net-A-Porter closing it’s New Jersey warehouse. We were told that all shoppers will be automatically directed to the UK version of the site and purchases will be shipped for free from the UK.
We often suggest shopping from the European version of NAP when there is a benefit of currency or a better promotion. The news alert had us looking a little deeper, this week, and we came upon some very interesting values.
We found these Bottega Venta leather mules that were sold out on the US site. Once exchanged to dollars, they come to $600 from the US retail of $790. The small Bottega pouch exchanges to $1200 from $1390.
If you’re looking for something more discounted we are happy to report that the Euro sale section is still very much alive. These Nicholas Kirkwood strappy slingbacks will cost just $172, metallic Saint Laurent kiki pumps $260 from nearly $800 and Chloe leather slides are $280 from $630.
The sandal section and summer options happen to be excellent. The prices of some items are low enough that there won’t be too much pandemic shopping guilt. Let’s hope we get to wear it all soon in health and joy.
