A line has yet to form outside the H&M flagship on Fifth Avenue and 51st Street for the Comme des Garçons debut on the 13th, but the store is already anticipating the launch with a series of special Comme windows. The location is one of four in NYC that will be receiving the collection; a cigar-toting Cavalli, with model Jessica Stam in tow, showed up to the Fifth Avenue store last year for the unveiling of his H&M collaboration. Will Rei make a guest appearance as well? (She did show up in Tokyo to help fold shirts.) The die-hards will find out come Thursday morning.
