The much-anticipated Comme des Garçons sample sale (dubbed “Super-Market-Market”) opened to huge crowds, many waiting hours in line. One of our fellow shoppers (thanks, D!) managed to get inside before they closed the doors yesterday evening at 6:30 on the dot. When they did that, there were still plenty of people waiting. As expected, some were visibly upset after they were told to try again today.
Inside, shoppers can expect discounts of up to 70 percent off for Comme des Garçons brands and up to 80 percent off for designers sold at Dover Street Market, with merchandise restocked daily.
Hopefully, they restocked today because our tipster tells us the merchandise was already thinning out when she was there. She adds that items left were the more avant-garde pieces. Apparently, there are a lot of shoes but each style only has one or two pairs in random sizes.
Check out the gallery of photos below which our tipster took yesterday. If you stop in this weekend, let us know what you find. Happy Shopping!
