to shop / repetto and longchamp sales (as of 2011.06.29)

Update: See the [Repetto shopping directory post] and [other recent posts] for updated information.

Repetto

Most online retailers I posted last time have gone through another round of markdowns for a discount of 50%. You’ll find a lot of BB raffia and jersey styles – which I do not think is a wise purchase, even at 50% off! I prefer leather.

  • Calypso St Barth still has the puce lizard BB. 50% off sale items (code: samplesale) promotion. As previously mentioned, call the outlet stores if the website is sold out.
  • Opening Ceremony, various colors and styles starting at $130ish. I highly recommend checking this sale out.
  • Creatures of Comfort, various styles, but unexciting colors. 50% off, starting at $130s.
  • Zoe. Not much here.
  • Ssense. If you’re a 37, you may be in luck.
  • Kirna Zabete. Raffia and jersey.
  • Saks Fifth Avenue. Hint: not all sale items are in the sale section. Further discount on July 4th. Get 10% off when you sign up for their mailing list. Use eBates.

  • Bergdorf Goodman (sale inventory has been stale since winter, probably a lot of returns. Blech!)
  • LostandFoundshop (unexciting and hard to navigate)
  • Very limited styles and sizes – Yoox, LaGarconne, Otte (black leather oxfords)
  • MadisonLosAngeles has two styles not on sale. Get 30% off with code lucky30 for the month of June.
  • Canadian gravitypope has great styles, but limited sizing. They are having a 20% off sale until early July.
  • Diani Boutique has 2 pairs at 20% off.

Longchamp (I get tons of hits on Longchamp and Repetto searches, so I figure it is only proper to highlight Longchamp sales as well. I haven’t procured any Longchamp since October 2009, but am always tempted by the Planetes seasonal colors!)

  • Magnums is having their semi-annual sale on seasonal colors. Discount is only ~20%.
  • Nordstrom is a little more generous with 33 – 40% off prices (and they do pricematch).
  • Saks is a perennial favorite for generous discounts, but stock moves very fast. So, check it regularly.
  • Bloomingdales is discounting seasonal colors and prints by 30%. [Darshan Le Pliage, Large Le Pliage]. Inventory moves just as fast as Saks.
  • Neiman Marcus has very few styles available, but keep an eye out for 25% off sales. The “Tree of Life Le Pliage” is only $66 with discount.
  • Bluefly also has some on discount sometimes.

I am surprised the Longchamp online store no longer does sales (their customer service did not impress).

  • If you’re looking for a classic color, wait for a friends and family sale or buy X, get Y off sale at one of the department stores or Magnums (sign up for their mailing list).
  • Ask a friend who is visiting Paris (they have the best Longchamp inventory out of all of the stores I’ve gone to in Europe. Other places, YMMV.)

      Kim – I see a red pair on Yoox that looks like the camille. Not sure what size you are. Tthey never list the style names, so you may want to keep an eye on them. Hope that helps!
