The Comme des Garçons Mega-Sale Is Coming Back With Dover Street Market Too!

More Last Minute Sample Sales

CDG-DSM-SuperMarketMarket-CutWe told you that there would likely be a few last minute sale announcements this week, and we weren't wrong. Like the private JIMMY CHOO sale that went public today at Metropolitan Pavilion (through tomorrow the 5th), Several covetable labels made their sample plans know with only days and even hours to spare, but the big exciting news comes from COMME des GARÇONS who announced that their only-once-every-few-years blowout sale is coming back in a couple of weeks on May 20th for three days at Skylight Clarkson Square, a new venue for them that should hopefully be cavernous enough to mitigate the inevitable long lines that this event has generated in the past. The "Super-Market-Market" will be offering not only every brand user the Comme des Garçons umbrella (and there are always more of those than you think), but also DOVER STREET MARKET brands as well. We're not sure if this means DSM-labeled merchandise and specialty items like their housewares, or if this will be more of a warehouse sale meant to include clearance leftover merchandise from past seasons? Maybe it's a little of both? Either way is fine with us.

But back to this week. There's plenty to fill out your shopping schedule if you weren't already booked up.
Tomorrow, Thursday the 5th, brings a one-day GIAMBATTISTA VALLI sale in West Chelsea that is promising up to 80% off the popular couturier's ready-to-wear collections. It hasn't been fully specified, but we are guessing that the sale would include both the luxurious main collection as well as the more accessible and sporty Giamba line. 

Anyone looking for more prosaic fare should look for JAMES JEANS on Greenwich Street just north of Tribeca where denim for men and women will be 50% to 80% off from Thursday to Friday.

The other longtime seasonal fave happening tomorrow through Saturday is the Staff USA sale in Chelsea featuring the DSQUARED2, MAISON MARGIELA and MM➅ collections for men and women. Bargains aplenty have been known to be found at this event in the past, but novice shoppers should be warned that it is typically heavy on sample sizes. It is a veteran crowd-pleaser, so it's one worth getting up early for.

As always, find details and locations on our SALE ROLL sidebar at left where we do our best to update any other last-minute additions that we catch wind of.
