Last week Barneys New York announced the much anticipated dates for its summer warehouse sale. The twist this season is that for the first time ever, shoppers will have the chance to experience the sale and shop online before it opens at the 17th street location on August 23rd. We know you're all thinking what we're thinking: Will this lessen the infamous crowds and chaos that the sale typically muster's?
We think not. Having an entire day to preview the goods will only drive more excitement to the actual in-store sale, and we think the crowds could be larger than ever. While the online experience will help those who simply live too far to attend the notorious sale in NYC (and boy are we happy for you), New York inhabitants will flock over after getting a taste of what will be to come. Let's not forget to consider the fact that past online sales and collabs (i.e. Missoni x Target) have caused websites to crash for hours. Our advice is simple; if you want the real Barneys Warehouse Sale experience, August 23rd at 17th street is where to be. Print pictures of your favorites pieces and head over with your sneakers on, ready to run and grab as fast as you can.
See you on the 23rd :)
