Barney’s Warehouse Sale Extended

By ManhattanMataHari

Most veteran shoppers know that the best time to shop Barney’s Warehouse sale is the end day. Those who have been away and haven’t had a chance to peruse the merchandise will be thrilled to learn that the sale has been extended one more day and will entertain shoppers until 9pm on Tuesday. We would even be so bold to speculate that there will be another markdown before the racks are pulled away.

Currently, shoes and ready-to-wear (stamped with red stars) are an additional 60% off the lowest marked prices. Sportswear and non-stamped designer clothing are an additional 70% off and accessories, lingerie, swimwear, home and children have already been cut an additional 75% off.

Starting in the shoe department, we found the selection for smaller shoe sizes (37.5 and under) to be sparse. With some diligence you may find some cute $208 Alaia booties, but Louboutin and Chanel fans are out of luck. There is still a good selection of Nicholas Kirkwood and Tabitha Simmons shoes. We found Givenchy boots for $307 and Giuseppe Zanotti pumps and peep toes for $144.

As expected, there wasn’t much in the accessories department, unless you’re a fan of B & D studded purses. We were shocked to find a number of white Alaia corset belts now $128, which is a far road from their $1000+ starting price.

Clothing finds were pretty hard to spot too. We spotted Lanvin and Balenciaga separates priced under $200 and an abundance of Carven separates and dresses priced equally discounted. We also spotted a lot of Nina Ricci and L’Wren Scott dresses from the last sale. There were some Holmes and Yang dresses, The Row separates and Rodarte on the racks. Our favorite finds were a shimmering green silk Behnaz Serafpour dress for $224, a cream $232 Stella McCartney blazer and a silk Lanvin jumper for $260.

While we walked away empty handed, it may be worth the cab fare to head down to Chelsea for the start of the last day tomorrow. At the very least, sorting through the remaindering merchandise was entertaining.
