Weekend Shopping: Impulses & Obsessions

July 19, 2020 by Lila Delilah

This week, big fashion news circulated about Milan’s digital fashion shows. There were Gucci, Prada, and Dolce, and more.  If you didn’t catch them, you’re not alone. Without the experience of a physical event, most fashion fans missed the link– or so they say.

You can click here to view them all but it’s become glaringly clear that the digital environment is not an adequate substitute for the real thing. Bucking the trend, Jacquemus sculptured a wheatfield to accommodate 100 VIP socially distanced guests to view his runway show that spanned 600-meters  or nearly 2000 feet. The visuals were spectacular but the compromise of having a live show in this environment is questionable. You can click here and judge for yourself.

Now is a great time to comb through Farfetch. I spotted lots of Saint Laurent items 50% off and even more. These Casandra YSL sandals are $425 from $850, a kelly green Cassandra bag is $1275 from $2550 and Opyum pumps are $500 from $1000. Also, check out deep discounts on Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana and Balenciaga.

Most recently, Tessabit started a promotion where you can save an extra 20% off sale merchandise with the code 20EXTRAMADISON. You must use this private Tessabit link to access the sale. Markdowns already scale 70% and the extra discount brings the total savings to near 80% off on some items. Some standouts include Fendi sandals for $340 from $700 and this Balenciaga quilted bag for $480 from $995. The full post with more finds can be found here.

Nordstrom started its round of second markdowns on designer brands. These Saint Laurent heels are $330 from $825 and this Saint Laurent linen tote is $755 from $1900. Click here to read the full post.

The discounts at Italist have hit up to 70% off. Prada PVC tote that’s $715 from $1100 US and  Bottega Veneta Lido heels are $940 from $1250 US. More details are in the full blog post.

That brings us to the very good deals we spotted on the UK version of Net-A-Porter, which include a Tom Ford Tote for $945 from nearly $1900 and a Rocksanda top with ruffle sleeves for $270 from $900. More finds can be found in the post.

Coming up this week, we wouldn’t be surprised to see additional markdowns at Saks Fifth Avenue and Moda Operandi.

Stay tuned. Until next time… same time, same place?
