MARKET MARKET: Comme Des Garçons is gearing up to unload some of its archive — but don’t call it a sample sale. Fans of the brand can get ready to line up for its second “shopping festival” in Manhattan, dubbed Market Market 2 (the first was held in May of 2011), from today until Monday, May 13 at 127 W. 30th Street. The pieces on display will range from the brand’s most recent runway collections to archival stock from up to 8 years ago, including some pieces never seen before in New York. All collections will be discounted at 70 percent off (with the exception of Black Comme des Garçons, at 50 percent off), with replenished merchandise daily.
