Right now there aren't a lot of very desirable bags to be found on the first floor. The selection is actually better online. The discount ranges from 40% to 70% off. This Valentino fringed bag is 60% off or $2000 from $5000, a Dolce & Gabbana velvet and snakeskin bag is $1200 from $3000 and a Stella McCartney Baby Bella is $930 from $1865. Beyond that, there are a few bags from Proenza and Lanvin.
The buzziest part of the store is undoubtedly the shoe department where the discounts are higher than any other store in the city. Almost every designer sole is discounted 60% and Chanel is 40% off. You can see pictures of the Chanel assortment here. Linen lace-up espadrilles are now $479 from $800, patent leather wing-tips are $340 and tweed navy booties with a patent heel and tip are $590 from $975.
Moving on to the more discounted shoe assortment, Gianvito Rossi Roma pumps that come in a variety of colors are all discounted to $269 from $670. We're especially fond of the aqua suede, but it's totally acceptable if you opt for the more neutral navy or black. Speaking of blue suede shoes, these Aquazzuras beauties are $329 from $825). These studded Saint Laurent rain boots are a great alternative to Hunters for not that much more money.
Moving upstairs onto ready-to-wear, we got stuck on these MM6 wide-legged jeans for $130 from $525, a Goen J black-and-white dress is $290 from $1150, a bird print cape Valentino dress is $1200 from $3000 and an embellished Prabal Gurung crop top is is $319 from $1217.
This is the last markdown at Barneys. If you were holding out for something particular, we suggest you wait no more.
