Dreaming of a Balmain chainmail and jersey dress?
Who doesn’t. The hefty GBP 17,190 price tag is, however, enough for most of us to not only not buy one, but also to stop dreaming of one. Which is good, because it would be stupid to dream of a dress that costs many people’s year’s salary now wouldn’t it. Better to not dream of those things at all really, save yourself from the disappointment.
So damn, damn, damn you Outnet for offering it at a 80% discount.
That still adds up to a weighty GBP 3,438, which is not cheap by any standards, but suddenly it’s become… achievable. And you go (ok I go) “well if I only eat porrige for…”
The Outnet is an online outlet offering designer pieces at unbelievable discounts. Not a novel concept in the world of fashion, outlets, but having them online is godsent for anyone who’s ever travelled to an outlet (always outside the big cities), fought over that last -80% white Jil Sander t-shirt (there’s crazy people out there, sometimes they rip things from your hands) just to take it home and notice it’s been stampeded on by heards of the above-mentioned crazy people. As a fashion enthusiast you might spot some similarities with the Net-a-porter look and feel - The Outnet is actually NAP's sister shop.
So when it comes to outlets, doing it online is definitely more pleasurable than the real thing – you can browse through the nicely displayed items in peace and quiet, you don’t have to fight with anyone, and you get home delivery. For those (crazy people) who enjoy the thrill of aggreshopping the Outnet offers flash sales and competitions where you have a limited amount of time to take advantage of offers or a limited number of a certain item available. You’ll have to fight over the stuff, but it doesn’t get physical – which is good, since a black eye doesn’t go too well with that beaded Marchesa gown now does it?
