Behold the inside of the Comme des Garçons sample sale! This is a rare and precious sight, like a unicorn in drop-crotch trousers, and it comes to us from DJ Mike Nouveau, who TwitPic'd eleven shots of last night's VIP preview. (We republished ten—one's really blurry.) Sadly, the good DJ didn't mention anything about prices, but his shots do tell us a bit about the layout, the selection, and the rules—including, most crucially, this one: "Anyone found mistreating the clothes will be asked to leave." The line outside today's sale had already formed as of 8:15am, according to another Twitterer. Our own lineblogger should be there any minute.
