Final Thoughts

Frustratingly, YSL’s official online store only has sales a couple of times a year so usually, you have to be patient if you’re looking to secure goods from their official store.

This is quite typical for major fashion brands and with YSL’s competitors as we found out when we asked the same question of Dior and Cartier which don’t even have online sales full stop.

However, as we’ve covered, there are still some options to source pre-owned and discounted YSL goods at the stores and marketplaces we’ve mentioned.

Cosmetics and fragrances are a little easier to find at discounted prices but the more bespoke items such as bags and shoes can be tricky to locate.

Remember to have your wits about you when shopping at places like Tradesy and Lyst – while they do their best to identify counterfeit and fake goods, you can never be too careful when shopping online for designer brands.
