Week in and week out, we’re combing the internet for the best possible things to buy. Sometimes that means discovering an under-the-radar product that Amazon shoppers have quietly formed a cult around, other times it’s sounding the alarm on a new release from a well-known and widely loved brand. But the things we love to shop most of all are designer pieces for way, way less.
This week, the deals were so good (and so numerous!) that we needed to gather them all up in one place. A few Katie Holmes-loved brands found themselves in the mix — Ulla Johnson, maker of Holmes’s controversial jeans, among many other things, has a stunning balloon-sleeve knit sweater going for hundreds less than retail. Khaite, who’s behind Holmes’s viral cashmere bra set, created what might be our favorite pair of leather pant-jeans, and they’re currently on sale for nearly $2,000 off. A tamer pair from the brand is also selling for barely over $100 right now.
Another thing on our mind, aside from Holmes’s impeccable style, is, naturally, swimwear. And lucky for us, there’s a massive sale on a stunner of a one-piece from Araks. Even if you don’t recognize the name, you’re probably familiar with Araks’ pieces — Scarlett Johannson famously wore a pair of sheer Araks undies in the opening scene to Lost in Translation. The suit that’s on sale is a flattering cut-out maillot in J.Lo’s favorite swimwear shade: white.
Not having anywhere to go can’t stop us from our obsession with bags, and we found two this week that we’re quite frankly freaking out about. Aurora James’s brand, Brother Vellies, almost never goes on sale, but we scouted this incredible leather top-handle bag for 70 percent off. Last we checked, there are only two left in stock, so it’s an or-forever-hold-your-peace situation.
The other bag deal that made us blink was this Marine Serre clear tote marked down to under $90. The brand’s won so many breakout-designer awards, we never thought we’d see the day it went on sale, but we’re not going to let this pricing fluke get away.
To round out the list: a few other summer essentials from equally essential brands. An Anna Sui babydoll dress we bet Sophie Turner would wear, cool-girl Alexander Wang Bermuda shorts (the most relevant shorts length right now), an extremely well-priced No.6 wrap dress we could wear anywhere, and a Rachel Comey blazer that’s only available in a few sizes by now, but was too perfect not to include.
