Oh to be a New Yorker this weekend. Comme des Garcons are not just having a sample sale, but a shopping festival--ill at 70% off, good lord. But this isn't just to liquidate last season's pieces, they're bringing out pieces from ALL their past collections, including pieces from Comme des Garcons, Junya Watanabe, the recently discontinued women's line Tao, Homme Plus, Junya Watanabe Man, Comme des Garcons Comme des Garcons. All pieces, including vintage pieces (vintage is considered anything pre-1975, so some serious rarities and relics to be had), have been "carefully preserved" and are all brand new.
And in dramatic CDG style, the extravaganza is being held at the Croation Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius, plus food vendors will be present to keep you sifting all day. Merch will be replenished daily, so it sounds like you should take Friday and Monday off work too.
Personally I'd be interested to see if there were any Junya Watanabe Man Pink items there. It was a line of menswear pieces for women that was discontinued as well.
