Avant-garde Alert: Comme des Garçons Black lands in NYC on June 22. Photo courtesy of doverstreetmarket.com

Some New Yorkers take a brief hiatus from donning black for the summer season, but with the unseasonably rainy weather, black hasn't gone anywhere. So looks like black is the new black!

All of which makes it the perfect time for Comme des Garçon's Black store to pop-up in New York City.

The temporary "guerrilla" line will be available in two locations: a shop-in-shop at Barneys for two weeks and a freestanding store, located at 10th Avenue and 17th Street in Chelsea on June 22.

Black celebrates CDG's 40th anniversary, revisiting avant-garde designer Rei Kawakubo's early days when the color black served as her nom de guerre.

Prices for the Black line will fall between the H&M/Comme des Garçons collaboration and the regular Comme des Garçons label. The designs will roll out worldwide in cities such as Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul and Paris and will hit Dover Street Market in London a few days earlier, on June 18th.

From the crowds that we saw at the launch of the H&M collaboration, plan your shopping accordingly!
