We already covered footwear at the Barneys Warehouse Sale yesterday, so let's turn to the labels available in the womenswear section. This time around, both the luxury and contemporary designer offerings are strong. In fact, it was difficult to approach a rack without turning up something desirable.
The luxury designers section is adjacent to the cash registers and houses plenty of Lanvin evening wear and lots of stand-out separates. We loved a particular Lanvin gold ruched dress for $999. If you're after something more playful, we spotted a signature bold patterned Marni dress for $319. Those of you with a more unusual aesthetic will want to hone in on a striking Isabel Marant embellished jacket (which was not priced).
The luxury designer section was also chock full of timeless, versatile skirts. Our favorite piece was a dark, patterned, architectural silk Givenchy pencil skirt for $529. Similarly, a pastel eyelet Derek Lam skirt for $319 caught our eye, as did a pleated color-blocked Chloe skirt for $529.
In the contemporary offerings we spied lots of Marc by Marc Jacobs blouses and sweaters starting at $139. Perhaps the best contemporary designer deal was a Diane von Furstenburg metallic boucle jacket for $229.
The irregulars section also had lots of choice labels like Opening Ceremony, Proenza Schouler, and Cynthia Rowley, but be sure to check these items carefully! We were disappointed to see significant damage that made pieces simply beyond salvage and not worth the cost (think pulled threads, unraveled hems, and damaged zippers). Detailed hang tags described the type of damage, so hopefully in the midst of mayhem you can take a moment to assess whether its worth it.
Along the side wall you'll find denim and casual pants, including labels like J Brand and Acne. We were also pleasantly surprised by a rack of swimsuits and coverups, including several pieces by Missoni (a one-piece suit was $159).
And now you know. As usual, shop early for the best selection or later for the best deals. And stay tuned for the menswear report—plus a follow-up tomorrow after the first day's craziness is over.
The Barneys Warehouse Sale continues through Monday, September 3rd at 255 W. 17th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. For hours and more details, check out our dealfeed. — Kiran
