Comme des Garçons’ Market Markets are becoming legendary. At the semi-annual shopping events, one is given a giant shopping bag upon entry, then let loose among thousands of men’s and women’s archival pieces in a massive warehouse somewhere. Often John Waters can be spotted perusing the racks, living up to his biggest-fan status.
This time, London has the honor — again. Calling the space Cardboard City, Comme says it’s their “biggest, most epic and fantastic shopping festival ever.” The stock goes back nine years and, as usual, will be replenished daily. The discount of (up to) 75% brings normally inaccessible suits and statement pieces into hoarding range. Hence, the giant shopping bag.
