It took a trip to Soho but our spies have been informed that the Chanel private sale will begin next week. To be precise, the private sale markdown will begin on Wednesday, December 15 and the discount will be 40% off ready-to-wear, select shoes and accessories.
Don't be intimidated by the "Private Sale" title. There's no list. It's simply a Chanel presale. At the boutique markdowns you can expect to find shoes that are distantly winter styles, like those wolly-mammoth boots with icicle heels. Rain boots and ballet flats are not included. In the bag category, you can expect those multi-color wool style bags but not a patent leather Reissue. Ya catchin' on?
For the record, we examined the new Reissue Maxi double flaps and they are exquisite. You better get going if you're looking to grab one of these new styles for the holidays. All the cruise style bags in SoHo are already spoken for. The price is $4000.
