161: A closer read of the private sale situation
Sophie Bille Brahe under $400, $47 Tekla towels, and 70% off babouche boots.
As promised!!! An obsessive dissection of the cutthroat private sales taking place ahead of Black Friday that are wont to end at any moment without notice.
There’s a lot of critical sale content to parse through, so I’m cutting straight to the gooey center with this edit. That includes copy-pasting this birds’ eye view from Tuesday’s send, since it’ll be as helpful a reference here:
The facts are as stands: There are 808 pages of Private Sale deals on SSENSE between Womenswear, Menswear, and Everything Else, and discounts reach up to 50% off across categories. On Net-A-Porter, there are 15,494 products in the hidden Rewards Private Sale page, all 30% off when added to cart. Nordstrom’s Private Designer Sale includes 1,569 products and is advertised as “up to 40% off,” but actually goes up to 85%. At Saks, 4,313 products are up to 40% off with SAKSSALE through this link only. And at Farfetch, there are 1,380 pages of the Exclusive Members’ Edit for 25% off. Just be sure that you’re signed in with your primary shopping email on each site to access the discounts.
