Right now, the best discounts on this season's designer shoes and handbags can be found at one store, and one store only: Barneys. Madison Avenue Spy embarked on the heroic task of documenting them all, and found that many collections are now available for 60% off their original prices.
First up: first-floor bags, where styles by Balenciaga (pictured), Chloe, and Givenchy are going for 40% off, making Givenchy Pandora bags with a snakeskin front $2,189, Antigona totes $1,079, Chloe bucket bags $1,250, and Alaia clutches $1,124.
Upstairs in the shoe department, there are Lanvin flats ($299), Alaia heels ($799), and lace-up Isabel Marants ($639), but no sign of Chanel or Louboutin (those discounts are reportedly coming tomorrow).
As for clothing, most of it is already on its second markdown, dropping discounts to 60% off. There are Prada dresses from $500 to $1,300, depending on fabrics, the entirety of the Dolce & Gabbana flower print line, and 40%-off Céline apparel. Head over to Madison Avenue Spy for photos.
