High-end retailers are offering deeper discounts as we head into summer. Over the weekend, Fashionable Femme Jen stopped into the Saks Fifth Avenue‘s flagship store in New York. While this isn’t the biggest discount of the season, it will still have a decent selection. Here’s Jen’s report:
“Stunning styles are on super sale at Saks Fifth Avenue’s “The Designer Sale.” Ducking in from the rain this weekend, I decide to have a look around the Fifth Ave Flagship.
While luxury brands like Alia and Prada aren’t typically sale rack fodder, Saks is now offering an additional 33% off most sale items, totaling a savings of 60%. Sale include ballgowns by Monique Lhuillier, Ralph Lauren, Annie Maier, etc. and ready to wear from Celine, Prada, Stella McCartney, Lanvin, Proenza Schouler, Alexander McQueen, Erdem and others.
On the ground floor, I spy some Lowe and Stella McCartney handbags at additional 25% discount. On the second floor, some sale items from Givenchy and Akris are mingled in with full price product.
Highlights from the women’s clothing selection are: a longsleeve black Prada dress with ruffled collar at $940.68, an Annie Maier pink floral gown at $1,929.60 (orig. $4880), an Elie Saab lace + pleated gown in navy for $3,254.19 (orig. $8,095) and a sequined Ralph Lauren long sleeve mini-dress at $1,471.32. I saw a stunning brown Celine trench which would now be a little over $2,000 and an Alexander McQueen black and white dress upwards of $1,000. Safe to say, stop by for fancy frocks.” – Fashionable Femme Jen of Style Curated
