Most stores have already started their first markdowns on contemporary and luxury lines but there are a few brands that strong-arm all retail outlets to hold off on discounts. Starting next week, you will be able to snag seasonal merchandise from brands like Chanel, Louboutin and Alaia at about a markdown of 30%.
If you have something particular in mind, we suggest contacting a reliable sales person to keep an eye out for your anticipated purchase. Last season was exceptionally good for Chanel lovers. Bergdorf, Saks and Bloomingdales quietly released a larger than normal assortment of Chanel bags during the markdown period. You can click here to see images of select jewelry and bags that were included in last season's sale.
Those looking for some new Chanel treads would benefit for waiting until the end of the season to make their purchases. Most seasons Chanel clothing gets slashed up to 70% off, which in many cases is less than vintage or pre-owned prices.
Louboutin shoppers can access the best discounts when shopping at a Louboutin boutique. The seasonal discount starts at 40% off where most department stores and boutiques offer only a 30% savings.
Stay tuned for lots of pictures of sale items.
