If you’ve been waiting for the right time to invest in a designer handbag, sale season is it.
While many designers avoid holding sales so as not to ‘cheapen’ their brands (Coach were accused of burning old stock rather than discounting the prices), it doesn’t mean their bags can’t be found with more affordable price tags elsewhere.
As we’ve said time and time again, it pays to shop smarter and there’s no point wasting your money.
Stockists like Farfetch, which is holding a huge summer sale with up to 60% off 10,000 items, is where you should be looking.
The online marketplace sells luxury brands including Jacquemus, Chloé, Stella McCartney, JW Anderson, Off-White and hundreds more, and while these are luxury labels we’re talking about, Farfetch isn’t stingy when it comes to the discounts.
It’s always scary dropping hundreds on one item, but as we’ve discovered, designer bags are definitely one of the best items to spend on.
Not only can they increase in value if you buy the right one, but it’s also much more likely you’ll actually use them – thus making it better for the environment too.
I’ve found that it’s so much better – not to mention easier – to have less rather than more, as you really make the most of what you do have, look after it and wear it way more.
I’ve been scouring through Farfetch’s ridiculously good sale section and found 14 handbags I’m obsessed with. Keep scrolling to see my selection from Jacquemus, D&G, Stella McCartney and more.
