While some stores have already moved on to fall merchandise, still others are are hawking last-call discounts on the previous season, reminding us that shopping in August isn't so bad after all. That's the case with Alexander Wang, with Mizhattan noting that much of the spring and summer collection is now up to 65% off—the same discount that accessories typically go for at the usually-annual sample sale.
The shopping blog says that those markdowns put bags like Prisma tote at just under $400, this neoprene style at $575, and a zip clutch with eyelet details at just over $200. Apparel still remains pricey, with this perforated skirt only coming down to $826. Head over to the brand's website—or stop by the Grand Street store and check out the latest iteration of the cage—to see the savings for yourself.
