Unless you just woke up from a years-long coma, you’re probably aware that it’s sale season, and you likely have some feelings about that. (And if you did just wake up from a coma: Welcome. It’s sale season. Time to see if your credit cards still work.) We’ve already given you two looks (here and here) into the best deals that can be had right now, so while we’re waiting for second markdowns to hit, let’s commiserate over and/or celebrate all the strong emotions a good sale brings out in us.

We love a sale, but we love it even more when the sale goes on sale. From now through June 3, our friends at yoox.com are taking a full 50% off a huge selection of top brands, and that includes literally hundreds of handbags from designers like Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Marc Jacobs and Gucci. Shop quickly, though–that type of giant discount doesn’t stick around for long.

One of the most exciting things about Fendi right now is that I never feel sure I know what the brand’s going to do. I know it will have the general Fendi aesthetic, but beyond that, it’s a brand that seems to find endless new ways to be delightful, and fans eat it up.
Louis Vuitton has changed a lot over the past couple of years, and by the numbers, the shifts in strategy are starting to look like they’re working. According to research firm Millward Brown, Vuitton held onto its spot as the world’s most valuable luxury brand in 2014, and it was one of only two that gained value.
This month included both a holiday weekend and an unofficial season change, so, as always, we forgive you if you haven’t read everything we’ve slaved over in this hot Internet kitchen. With new fall lookbooks and Cruise 2016 collections popping up left and right, though, you might have missed something well worth going back to see.
