Just because sale season is mostly over doesn’t mean there aren’t still opportunities for great deals. One of the best ones going right now is at farfetch.com, where you can take an extra 20% off all sale items, now through midday January 23. All you have to do is enter code x20jan at checkout to get your additional savings at boutiques around the globe. The sale still includes bags from brands like Givenchy and Valentino, so you definitely won’t want to miss it.
Lately, it’s become trendy for fashion designers to eschew what seasonal fashion traditionally means. Brands are still releasing collections based on the industry’s seasonal delivery calendar, but instead of those collections being totally distinct from what comes before and after, the creative heads of massive international brands have instead taken to “wardrobing,” and Valentino was among the very first to adopt the tactic.
“Investment” is a word that gets thrown around a lot when it comes to luxury fashion, but when it comes to actual, annual increases in value, Hermès Birkins are the gold standard. According to a data evaluation recently done by resale platform Baghunter, that might be even truer than bag lovers previously thought.
