Prada: Finding the Best Discounts

It's no secret we are huge Prada fans. We don't care that it's not the hottest label, that there is no IT-bag or that it's not the hottest sidewalk fashion. Prada is timeless, versatile and wearable.

This season, the Italian fashion brand has extended it's reach into more retail venues and more online stores. Most notably, Net-a-Porter launched Prada fashion for the first time. Insiders say that sales have been healthy, which makes us generally happy. Now that it's sale season, we are on the hunt for the hottest Prada items for the best price. Here is where to shop for Prada and all the discount details.






Prada
Prada boutiques are offering customers a 50% savings on spring and summer clothing and shoes. Bags are discounted 40%. Historically Prada only offers one markdown. So it's best to get what you want right away. If you're looking for bags or shoes, it might be best to shop Prada's online store. Boutiques usually don't transfer merchandise and the e-boutique draws their inventory from stores across the country. Clothing is not yet sold online.
Prada Madison Avenue: Betty- 212-327-4200

Net-A-Porter
Over On NAP, the discounts range from 30% to 50% off depending on the popularity of the item. NAP actually has some great exclusives, which can't be found anywhere else. For instance, we haven't seen any of this particular style of floral slides anywhere and the difference between 40% to 50% off is only $65. We simply can't get enough of this lips print. The best part is that NAP will have a second markdown shortly. Keep your eyes glued.

Bloomingdales
If you're looking to buy a Prada bag we suggest you head to Bloomingdales where some styles are discounted 50%. The 59th Street store doesn't carry Prada shoes any more and there is no Prada clothing. We don't believe there will be a second markdown on bags but sometimes loyalist points and other store promotions can make the purchase even more attractive.

MyTheresa
Prada is a straight 40% off on MyTheresa but, like NAP, the site did a Prada capsule collection and there are some great exclusive pieces. For instance, this robot print bag is just about $1200 from nearly $2000, here is a dress that will look perfect today and 20-years from now and this lightweight sweater is equally as timeless.

Hi Amy!

Thanks so much! The Prada boutiques won't have any additional markdowns but the other stores we mentioned in the post will likely have another markdown mid-month.

We'll be sure to keep you posted. Xx

Does MyTheresa do further discounts after a few weeks? I have my eye on a pair of shoes, not from Prade though, they just now hit 40% and am wondering if it will go any lower. I have never shopped with the site before so I am not sure what their last final discount is.

Hi Michele,
Basically, everyone does further discounts. The tricky spot is making sure they don't sell out of the item you want. Can you see if it's an exclusive or if it's sold at other retailers.

I don't think it is an exclusive because I saw it at the designer's boutique last week. I was ready to buy when it was 30% off but in the past week it already got reduced to 40% so I am hoping that it will go down further. I know with the department stores the last discount is like 60-70% but since I have never purchased from MyTheresa I am not sure of how they do their sales. I have been checking twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, to check if my size is still there. so far so good!

Hi Michele,

Check netaporter tomorrow. They are starting a new markdown in the morning. The discount might be 60!
Good luck!!!
