The Same Game: YSL Cage Boots

Every season an iconic piece of fashion emerges. Sometimes it's a belt at a particular width, could be a bag with a noticeable print or the intricate pleating of a skirt. This season, YSL seems to have captured a look with their Cage Boots. Rumoured to be sold out shortly after the collection arrived, we were surprised to see these wearable (or unwearable) pieces of art reduced.

In the spirit of Madison Avenue Spy--lets play The Same Game!



YSL Cage Boots: Retail price $1,590
Barneys:$949.00
Bergdorfs:$1590-- will be reduced on June 3rd either 30% or 40%
eBay: $1700
YSL Boutique: $999
Saks: $1590 --will be reduced 30% on June 1 to $1113

Marni Store is also having a sale. Shoes 40%, clothing 30%

I just bought a pair of Marni shoes from the Marni Soho store and I noticed that the ORIGINAL price at the Marni store was consistently $5 to $10 more than at Barneys or Bergdorfs ORIGINAL. If anything I would expect the original price to be cheaper at the Labels own store. Strange

I don't really care for these - and its too much money for something you can't wear after summer without screaming "last season"

An LA Boutique called Madison Los Angeles has them in selected sizes in silver for $774, and then you can use a discount code styl09 for additional 15% off and there is no shipping and no tax (no tax if you live in New York at least)! Only catch is they are final sale and they only have a few sizes.
