At this late date, it’s possible that current markdowns are orthogonal to COVID. After all, it’s August and retailers must wave their Summer merchandise good-bye. The end-of-season discounts at Saks Fifth Avenue are rather good shouldn’t go overlooked.
We were surprised to see any discounted designer handbags but there are some notable finds. This Givenchy top-handle bag is now $1075 from $1250 and this Valentino belt bag is $838 from $2100. Among the shoes are these Balenciaga glitter Knife shoes for $278 from $600, Valentino boots are $660 from $1650 and Gucci slides are $475 from $950.
Shoes and handbags are always nice but the clothing options are even better. Here is a an Alaia dress for $850 from $3500, The Row skinny pants are $228 from $950, and a Saint Laurent satin blazer is $860 from $3600.
We are at the end of the season. Prices are unlikely to go any lower. We suggest you take a final scroll before we begin back-to-school talks.
