Farfetch is having a sale with discounts of up to 60% on women’s apparel and up to 70% on men’s. Read on for the essential details on the Farfetch sale, including 10 gorgeous designer pieces that may have a place in your closet.
Farfetch is an online marketplace for luxury shops around the world. Think of it as an online mall featuring pieces from 1,400 luxury brands, boutiques, and department stores — but better, because all garments and accessories are shoppable from one place.
The garments Farfetch carries are high-end only. So you should expect the prices to be dramatically higher than what you’ll find at, say, Kohl’s or Gap. The good news is that you can find designer pieces that won’t generate twinning moments with a coworkers or fellow members of the PTA.

- You can shop Farfetch from more than 190 countries. You also have dozens of currency options, including cryptocurrencies.
- U.S. shoppers can pay in installments with AfterPay or Klarna.
- Farfetch doesn’t set the prices; the brands and boutiques do. Pricing does change regularly and can vary by size, location of the shopper, and where the product will ship from.
- You cannot “save” a price by putting an item in your cart.
- You qualify for free shipping when you spend $200 or more.
- Returns are accepted within 14 days from the delivery date.
About the Farfetch sale
When are designer clothes worth the price tag?
I hear this question a lot, in different forms. Often it goes something like this: Why spend $1,000 on a dress when I can buy something similar for $150?
There’s no answer to this question that’s universally compelling. The decision to splurge on an investment piece — or not — is personal. I’m not about to convince anyone otherwise.
I will say, from a practical standpoint, that spending top-dollar on a garment makes the most sense in certain scenarios. At a minimum, you when you can afford it without negatively impacting other areas of your life. As well, one of these is true:
- You’re shopping for a special occasion outfit, and you want to wear something memorable. If you’ll only wear it once, you can always sell it later.
- You’re shopping for an investment piece you plan on wearing or using a lot. Your cost-per-wear on a designer handbag, for example, could easily be less than the cost-per-wear on a cheap sweater you wear once.
- You’re shopping for a gift for someone special. A designer accessory can be a thoughtful way to honor a good friend who loves fashion.
