Fashion Quarterly’s guide to all the best Black Friday deals on beauty, fashion, accessories, and more.

A timely way to support the hard-hit retail industry after recent lockdowns, the Black Friday sale season is full of surprises and delights for savvy shoppers.

While it may feel overwhelming to cut through the noise of frenzied sales and endless discount codes, we’ve compiled a list of Black Friday offers that have caught our eye for their longevity, quality, function and form.

From must-have cult beauty products to exquisite limited-edition products, here are the Black Friday buys that we’ll be savouring, wearing, and enjoying for a long time.

Exclusive edits

Jeuneora Renew+ Marine Collagen ‘Super Powder in Black Doris Plum’

Deadly Ponies ‘Sling Mini Shadow’, $679

From tomorrow morning (Friday 26 November), a number of brands are releasing limited-edition capsules, some set to become hotly coveted collectors editions. Wellness brand Jeuneora is releasing a black doris plum-flavoured collagen, touted as their juciest flavour yet — we absolutely cannot wait to taste. And Deadly Ponies is once again releasing an exclusive trio of handbags, notably featuring silver hardware instead of the brand’s signature brass. 

Precious metal

Pandora Me freshwater cultured pearl bracelet, $215.20

Pandora Timeless ‘Square Sparkle Hoop’ earrings, $111.20

If you’re after a treasured keepsake or gift for a loved one, Pandora is offering 20% off selected collections in-store and online. We have our eye on freshwater cultured pearls from the Pandora Me collection and the sophisticated silhouettes of the Pandora Timeless collection, like these ‘Square Sparkle Hoop’ earrings.

Forever footwear

Dr. Martens ‘2976 Hi Chelsea Boot’, $299


Dr. Martens ‘1461 Patent Lamper Croc Emboss’, $219.99


It’s always a good idea to invest in stylish and quality footwear, and now is the perfect time to shop up to 30% off selected Dr. Martens styles from now until Cyber Monday (29 November). We have our eye on these uniquely sleek Dr. Martens offerings that will take us through summer, winter, and beyond. 

Luxury beauty

Giorgio Armani ‘My Way Intense’ EDP 50ml, $156

Lancôme ‘Advanced Genifique Microbiome Youth Activating Serum’, $149.25

This one’s for the beauty lovers: tick off your wish lists because Life Pharmacy has everything you need, offering 15% – 50% off beauty and up to 25% off fragrance brands. There’s 25% off Lancôme and Yves Saint Laurent, and 25% off luxury fragrance brands like Giorgio Armani, Prada, Valentino, and more. Our top picks are the Georgio Armani My Way Intense perfume, an opulent interpretation of the original signature floral scent, as well as the iconic Lancôme anti-aging face serum Advanced Genifique.

Wear now or later

Icebreaker ‘Unisex Icebreaker x Goldwin Merino Coat’, $900


Levi’s ‘High Loose’ jean shorts, $73.27


If you’re feeling savvy, Black Friday sales are the perfect time to stock up on quality winter essentials to save for later — or must-have summer styles to make the most of now. We’re enamoured by the cozy array of luxury merino styles from Icebreaker (all products are 25% – 50% off until Monday 29 November) and this staple pair of denim shorts from Levi’s (all products are 30% off until Monday).

Savour and enjoy

Scapegrace ‘Central Otago Early Harvest’ rare gin, $79.95 

Fourth St. set of seven brass candlesticks, $266

As the festive season approaches, what’s better than enjoying a rare tipple, namely the Scapegrace Central Otago Early Harvest, of which only 3000 bottles were made? Featuring flavourful notes of nectarine, lavender, smoked hay and pollen, this is a sublime drink designed to be savoured. And when it comes to the perfect home decor for hosting loved ones, look no further than Fourth Street Home, which is offering 30% off its elevated curation of objects (discount applied at checkout).
