We can't decide if Net-a-Porter.com is genius or absolutely insane for launching their new outlet site, TheOutnet.com, the day after millions of Americans paid their taxes. We reported two weeks ago that the website was on the cusp of finally launching, after Net-a-Porter.com founder Natalie Massenet had already announced the portal would be live in April 2008.
It might not matter, because holy hell, this site is good. Good as in, our accountants will hate us, our fathers will cry ... but dammit, we'll be stimulating the economy kind of good.
The designers run the gamut from 3.1 Phillip Lim to Zac Posen, where—dang it!—we've missed snapping up a Zac Sac handbag for $259, an 80% savings. Seriously, people, this is madness. Some grayed-out names adding a bit of extra tantalizing include Fendi and Stella McCartney ... we really can't wait for those to get stocked.
