It's Friday, and Friday is exciting for two reasons: Not only do you (probably) not have to go to work tomorrow, and we spent yesterday afternoon scouring the Internet to bring you the Best Bag Deals of the Week, just like we do every week. Because the pickins were a bit slim at the places I usually look for sale bags, I decided to take the plunge into the discount-designer web warehouse that is Yoox. The breadth of the site's wares can be a bit intimidating for fist-timers, but if you take a few moments and really dig, there are some amazing finds waiting for you.
Because Yoox is Italian-owned, the site does particularly well when it comes to buying up discount merchandise from Milan-based brands like Valentino and Bottega Veneta. The European selection in general is good, with some notable pieces from Dior and McQueen that you don't often see at a discount, and even a recent-season Celine bag in the mix. There are also a lot of bags in the $150-$400 price range from brands that American consumers might not recognize, but if you're looking for something in that price range that not everyone else already has, Yoox is a pretty good place to look. Check out the 10 best designer bag deals we found on the site after the jump!
