Neiman Marcus Inc. is headed back to Wall Street. The Dallas-based luxury stalwart filed its long-awaited registration statement for an initial public offering Monday. Details are still vague, with no read on how many shares would be sold or at what price.
Reached by WWD Tuesday, the newly anointed 39-year-old designer, who will take the helm as executive creative director of the nearly $5 billion American accessories brand, said that he intends to call upon the 72-year-old brand’s heritage to inform its upcoming collections.
Who could be unmoved by a road trip across the heart of America? Certainly not Kim Jones, whose spring collection was an ode to the heartland — its preppies and hippies, its forest rangers and screen idols.
It was a long and — thank the fashion gods — strong resort. After nearly two months of resort appointments, presentations and runway shows, WWD distills the season's best trends in a three-part report.
Front row at @fendi: @elliegoulding was at the show, fresh off releasing the finale song for the latest Bridget Jones flick. "I grew up with Bridget Jones and it was exciting and fun to work on the song. It's a fun and amazing character and I can relate to her." - Goulding #MFW
#MFW Designer Inspirations: "An evocation of dreams, hopes and memories, like a bottle with a letter inside or a magic lamp that looks after your own desires." - Salvatore Piccione on @piccione.piccione's spring collection
“I love the idea that her army and her women landed at Deauville’s beach in 1930,” Erdem Moralioglu tells WWD about his Spring 2017 collection. “To me, the show was about a landing. There was something so very interesting about the idea, these 1650 nipped-in jackets with these Deauville-y cropped trousers and these sun hats.” #lfw 📷: @giovanni_giannoni_photo
Ralph Lauren's new evening time slot at Fashion Week meant it was the perfect opportunity to amp the show's beauty game. See our exclusive interview with @tompecheux and @guidopalau about the look on WWD.com. Link in bio.
