Here are the 10 best buys from the Ssense sale
By

I never, ever buy designer at full price. First, I simply cannot afford to do so. Second, the discounts are just too reliable, and the deals too thrilling, to shop any other way. High-end fashion still functions on a largely seasonal model, which means that goods will go on sale in July and December to make way for new collections. The pandemic has certainly thrown the entire fashion system into chaos, but there is an upside for discount-seekers. Sale season seems never-ending, as brands continue to readjust to the new normal — and the spending habits that come with it. Right now, hundreds of designer shoes, dresses and accessories are temptingly marked down. Here, the 10 best finds from the Ssense sale to add to your cart before they’re gone.

LONDON (AP) — Around 25,000 U.K. retailing jobs remain under threat even as it emerged Monday that online fashion firm Boohoo has bought Debenhams, one of the country’s oldest department store chains, and rival ASOS confirmed it wants to pick up parts of Arcadia Group.

The developments illustrate the huge changes taking place in Britain’s retailing scene during the coronavirus pandemic. With shops selling non-essential items closed once again, many retail outlets, big and small, face the prospect of closing for good.

Boohoo’s acquisition of the Debenhams brand and website for 55 million pounds ($75 million) will see it turn a traditional retailing outlet into an online-only operation.
