From Tom Ford to Saint Laurent to Isabel Marant, high-end sales are so hot right now. The mother of all deals is going down from August 22nd through 24th, when famed French luxury brand Hermès will unveil massive savings at its Beverly Hills boutique on Rodeo Drive. This never happens.
We have very good word that the three-day event will feature past season ready-to-wear, shoes, hats, gloves and possibly a few other surprises, like silk scarves and ties. (No bags, sadly.) While our trusty tipster didn't disclose discount specifics, previous markdowns have been anywhere from 40 to 60% off, which are pretty serious reductions for the notoriously pricey manufacturer.
Sales will begin at 10am daily, but we hear that diehards will start lining up as early as 7am. If you've never had the pleasure of receiving that iconic orange shopping bag (we hear it's a euphoric experience), don't sleep on this.
