I anticipate that there will be a lot more designer sales as we near the timing of the natural markdown season. Most recently, Farfetch’s conglomerate of boutiques began reducing some designer merchandise in an effort to spur business to the independent retailer.
Scrolling through, there are lots of designer options at 25% off and more. This Givenchy Eden bag is reduced half-off and comes to $1450 from $2900vand this Balenciaga canvas tote bag is $795 from $1325.
According to online shopping reports sales of Birkenstocks are up 98%. A time frame wasn’t provided, which means data is pretty meaningless but nonetheless people are buying Birkenstocks. There are lots on sale on Farfetch. Arizona white Birks are reduced to $56 in some sizes and Black Arizona Birks are $72. Bottega Veneta square toe pumps are $299 from $750 and these Gianvitto Rossi boots are 80% off bringing the price to $240 from $1200. (There are lots of sizes left too.)
Digging through the clothing options there is this Balmain tee that’s $175 from $350 and a Cecilie Bahnsen puff sleeve dress is $824 from nearly $1100. There are lots of Self-Portrait options reduced 40% off. These high-rise shorts are $186 from $310 and this lace maxi-dress is $285 from $475.
We would keep an eye on Farfetch over the course of the next week. It seems primed for some extra discounts. Don’t you agree?
