The traditional Barneys Warehouse Sale gets underway next week in Chelsea… For those of you who can’t make it or can’t wait, the sale is now available online. Click here to access the offerings.
We had a quick look at the women’s merchandise. At the time, there were more than 2,000 items. We found the markdown to be around 60% off and a bit more for most of the merchandise. Although, we did spot a Lanvin cocktail dress (pictured above) nearly at 75% off retail – now at $989 (orig. $3,945).
Larry Label Whore had a look at the men’s goods and gives us his findings:
“It seems like yesterday the last Barneys Warehouse Sale came, but it’s now back along with a corresponding site. The previous Barneys sale included a website for the sale for the first time. I found the site to be much better than the actual sale. The merchandise was better as well as the discounts so I couldn’t wait to see the offerings this time around.
Looking through the site I found that prices were marked down up to 66%; not bad, but still not nearly the amount you should buy these items for. There are over 2,000 items on the men’s side, but nothing really stands out to me. You’ll find a wide array of the usual Barneys high-end designers like Burberry Prorsum, Lanvin, Brunello Cucinelli, Ferragamo, Givenchy, Balmain, Maison Martin Margiela, etc…
I do have one complaint though. The site has been taking a long time to load. Might be due to the traffic (if that’s the case, they should get better servers). My sage advice is to wait ’til closer to the last days of the online sale when the prices are likely to go down as much as 80-90% off. If you find something you like on the website then don’t bother going to the actual sale space. If it’s anything like the last time, the online sale is much better.”
