Natalie Massenet's much-anticipated The Outnet finally launched this morning. The site's as easy to navigate, though not quite as pretty, as Net-a-Porter and stocks about 200 brands right now. You can search by designer, by category and by percentage off or click on Dress Me where they've sorted product by occasion. Also, they're doing seventy-two hour pop-up sales on rotating items. There's a note on the site that Marc Jacobs will be in next week and we've spotted some amazing finds like this Derek Lam grecian dress, this cream Zac Posen bag and this awesome Mulberry jacket. But remember that part about how it wasn't going to be all recycled Net-a-Porter product? True, we probably spend an inordinate amount of time on the mother site but we've seen all of this before, this Chloe dress, these Marc shoes and this 3.1 Phillip Lim shift - all at the exact same prices - except for these sequined Miu Miu's which are $100 less at Barneys right now. There's a gem of a Burberry trench, some beautiful pieces from Nina Ricci and we spy the Louboutin zipper heels. It'll be swell to have a Net-a-Porter sale year round, but let us know when there's something we haven't seen.
