We braved the frigid weather yesterday in the hopes of finding some really good bargains at the Bergdorf Goodman winter sale—and bargains we did find. So much has been reduced, with everything from bags and shoes to coats and dresses at 40% to 75% off retail. Shoes are mostly half off, so they're not quite as affordable as what you'll find at Barneys, but the selection is way better here, not to mention more organized.
First we headed to the fifth floor, where there are sale racks filled with contemporary clothing. We saw everything from denim and blazers to sweaters and dresses. There were some shearling jackets too, including a 3.1 Phillip Lim moto style for $1,159. Other great finds include a few pairs of T by Alexander Wang leather joggers for $749, a cracked metallic 3.1 Phillip Lim sweatshirt for $159, and Rag & Bone jeans for $59.
Next, we headed down to floor three, where the premier designer sale is taking place. There are racks filled with pieces by Celine, Alaia, The Row, Michael Kors, Proenza Schouler and more—all of which are 75% off . It's here where we found a psychotic Alaia dress for $1,389 (that's dirt cheap for an Alaia!), a gorgeous pink wool Celine coat for $3,539, and a Michael Kors fisherman sweater for $299. If and when you plan your visit, start on this floor.
Now for the shoes. The selection is incredible, but again, they're still only half off. You'll find styles like multi-colored studded Louboutin pumps for $698, Stella McCartney sneakers for $299, Celine slip-ons for $339, Nicholas Kirkwood booties for $839, and some seriously sick Giuseppe Zanotti moto boots for $659.
Finally, we looked at the bags, first on five, then on the main floor. On the fifth floor there's a Jimmy Choo pouch for $329 and a Sophie Hulme mini top-handle for $469. The main floor bags consist of Stella McCartney pouches for $759, a hunter green Balenciaga tote for $1,139 and a furry little Fendi for $1,819.
Obviously, the sooner you check the sale out the better, a salesperson told us that the selection decreases daily. Check the gallery above for photos from inside.
