Fashionably late to sale season as always, Chanel is finally gracing us with markdowns next week. Mizhattan reports that as of next Tuesday, June 23rd, shoes and apparel from the spring and summer 2015 collection will be discounted 40% at the city's boutiques (that's Soho, 57th Street, and Madison Avenue).
As brand diehards are most unfortunately aware, handbags won't be part of the sale—Chanel bags hardly ever go on sale to begin with. But don't worry, because Bergdorfs, Barneys, and Saks, all have plenty of discounted designer handbags to go around (albeit sans linked C's).
