There were few takers at the Fendi sale in Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion this morning. Even after waiting in line at 8:30am, many women walked out empty handed, including me.Â There was no scoring a fabulous handbag here.
The items on sale were expensive. The high-endÂ brand’s sought-after handbags were mostly 60% off the regular price. TheÂ medium and largeÂ bags were between $1,200 toÂ $2,000 retail – sale priceÂ fromÂ $480 to $800Â … SmallÂ bags were on sale from $200-$400.Â The prices for wallets, scarves and sunglasses weren’t too bad.Â I spotted a checkbook wallet for my mother on sale for $250 and a scarf for $150.Â But, after a second look, I decided to pass on them.Â Also on offer were pieces from the brand’s women’s ready-to-wear collection as well as fur.Â No shoes on sale.
Pricing structure went like this:Â Â items with green dots wereÂ 55% off, yellow dotsÂ 60% off, blue dots 70% off and red dots 75% off.
