Comme des Garçons, Market Market Town, Paris

Sale Alert! Comme des Garçons, Paris

Comme des Garçons' massive semi-yearly sale, which it calls Market Market Town, is the stuff of legend. John Waters — who, according to lore, wears nothing but Comme — is routinely seen at them, quickly scuttling between the racks to avoid stalkers like us. Aside from cult celebs, there is no better place to score Comme and its ever-expanding universe of lines — men's or women's, recent or current.

Like the Olympics, the host city is always hotly anticipated. And so, announced today, the next Market Market Town will be held in...Paris! That's right, as if Parisians didn't have enough of the world's best design at their fingertips, they're about to have all the Comme they could possibly cram into their closets for roughly 70% off.

The merch is never-ending, replenished periodically throughout each day. You could spend half a day there, as we typically do, and still discover new racks, new bins, new rooms full of stuff. In other words, you'd be a fool not to go. Don't forget to print out the pic above and show it at the door.

Sale Alert! Alexander Wang Sample Sale

In case you didn't get your fill of T by Alexander Wang at that free-for-all, or passed altogether in the interest of not getting into a claw fight, here's another chance to get your hands on Wang wares. The spring 2013 sample sale — for both T and the regular Alexander Wang line — is less than a week away, offering assorted threads and accessories from pre-fall 2012, fall 2012, and resort 2013 at up to 70% off.

Perhaps owing to the earlier melee, a photo ID will be required from everyone, even those going to the press/VIP preview, so don't think for a moment you can deck-and-dash.

Comme des Garçons, fall '13

Sale Alert! Comme des Garçons

The last time Comme des Garcons had one of their "shopping festivals" in New York—which they call Market Market (so good they named it twice!)—the racks seemed to stretch forever in the vast Croatian Church on the West Side. People were given enormous shopping bags when they walked in, and often they needed more than one. Because when Comme is 70% off, one hoards.

Now comes the sequel, Market Market 2. Beginning May 10, Comme will once again put out their best old stock, all the brands under the Comme umbrella from the last eight seasons. As before, the merch is replenished and rotated each day, so no chance of shopping fatigue.

Comme des Garçons Market Market 2
May 10 - 13, 10 am - 7 pm (Sat: 12 - 8 pm)
127 W. 30th Street (between 6th and 7th Ave)
