In New York, the season for shopping has arrived. Not only is it prime holiday gifting season, but frigid temps means we'll be spending our days indoors—and if we were you, the indoors in question would definitely be Barneys New York. To make your shopping trip even sweeter, second markdowns have just hit at the retailer's already-legendary designer sale, bumping everything from Saint Laurent to Givenchy to Balenciaga up to 60% off. The markdowns are in effect both in stores and online. Find them at the Madison Avenue flagship—or Barneys' shops on the Upper West Side, Brooklyn, and Soho. See you there.
