Weekend Shopping: Impulses & Obsessions

June 27, 2021 by Lila Delilah

What started off as a late sale season has turned into a tornado of additional discounts. This week, we saw a plethora of second markdowns and lots of new designers hitting the discount tables. What’s most interesting is that it appears as if the brands have taken control of the retail market.

Department stores like Saks, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom no longer control what, when, and how items are discounted. Most of the top retailer’s coordinated markdowns across all retail channels. The trend started with Chanel and YSL a few weeks ago and has extended towards Dior, Valentino, Fendi, Prada, and Balenciaga.

Retail analysts say the internet is killing retail but the real murderer is the big brand. Department stores need autonomy to best serve their customer. Retailers need to be able to review their stock lists, inventory holdings, and demand to assess what items need price adjustments. MSRPs are already fixed, and the brand’s grip is strangling the market and feels awfully similar to price-fixing. 

Is the fix in and are we paying the price?

Those looking to score some discounted Prada can find all the retailer’s private sale links and codes in this post. This sale seems to be the most voracious of the season. Many items sold out during the first hours but there are some great picks still remaining. It’s safe to say, Prada is back!
Fendi sale shoppers should hook a click to Nordstrom’s private designer sale. There have also been new updates since the sale launched from Prada, Loewe, Thom Browne, Dries, and more. You can click here to see the full post or browse for yourself here
Net-A-Porter’s sale section keeps growing too. You can grab this Fendi logo dress now for $900 from $1300 or the Loewe Balloon large bag for $2200 from $3150. You can click over to our full blog post here and see our top 10 NAP sale items. 
The UK’s top department store, Selfridges started markdowns this week. The site is also offering 30% off this assortment of shoes with the code SHOES30. You can see our top picks and read more in the blog post here.
As for more brand sales we have everything you need to know about Balenciaga markdowns here. You must use this private sale link to see the Balenciaga discountsValentino is this way, and Jimmy Choo is over here
We expect things to really fire up at MyTheresa this week. It may be worth looking back at European stores for new collections. Coltorti has a great selection of Fendi Vertigo that’s way under retail and if you use the code DEALMOON15, you can save an additional 15% off.  Swimwear is an extra 50% off at J. Crew and totally worth the browse.
