There's nothing like a sale to put a little spring in your step—or, in the case of the Barneys New York designer sale, a BIG spring in your step. This is the stuff of legend—we're talking designers like Saint Laurent, Margiela, Lanvin, Dolce & Gabbana, and Givenchy, all at up to 40% off.
Be sure to plan accordingly. Are you going to scoop up all the shoes you can carry for yourself first? Or, jump from department to marked-down department picking up presents for everyone you've ever met? Perhaps you'll hit the Chelsea Passage home section to start that long-planned apartment makeover? The sale is on, now at Barneys New York stores and Barneys.com. You know what to do.
