Bags tell a story, and some can even be worth more than their retail price. In fact, the sale of a single Hermes Birkin can set you back tens of thousands of pounds, with bidding at auction houses, including Sotheby’s and Christie’s, often reaching sky-high numbers. But what if you could get the same designer bags you love for much less? That’s what’s happening right now with Nordstrom’s Black Friday sale.
The Nordstrom sale offers everything from clothing and shoes to home goods, but arguably its most exciting offering is the array of designer bags that are on offer. The retailer has a wide selection, from new and old styles to those that have resparked in popularity – like Coperni’s sleek Swipe Bag, which was first seen on Dua Lipa, Doja Cat and Kylie Jenner in fall/winter 2022. The cylinder-shaped design is still going strong and, according to resale site The RealReal, searches for the style have jumped 35% in the second half of this year.
And it’s not just vintage bags that are attracting the attention of fashionistas, many newer designs are also rising in demand, with the average resale value of Birkins climbing along with their primary market prices. Meanwhile, cult-favourite brands such as GANNI are still riding the ’90s trend with a shoulder bag that feels both nostalgic and modern. In fact, the label’s Tessuto bag – which has recently been reimagined in crystal-adorned versions – is a top seller. designer bags on sale
