We may be biased, but is there anywhere better for shopping than New York? It's epic all year 'round, but today, it's more glorious than ever: The Barneys New York designer sale has officially arrived. The retailer's designer lineup—think Lanvin, Givenchy, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, and so much more—is now up to 40% off in stores and online at Barneys.com. There are also great steals in the adorable kids' department and Chelsea Passage, a destination for seriously chic home finds. Our advice? Get to the Madison Avenue flagship—or Barneys' shops on the Upper West Side, Brooklyn, and Soho as soon as you can. Happy shopping!
